The answer to this pressing question is, by its very nature, a short answer. The cost of MLM management software is in direct proportion to a company’s preparation. The better prepared a company is with the definition of business rules and software requirements, the less costly it is for the company. Programming changes are expensive, and most MLM management software companies understand that. Do not infer from this that software providers deliberately take advantage of an MLM start up or Party Plan start up company. However, use caution in that clients who fail to adequately plan and prepare and to diligently work through their requirements incur significantly greater expense, both in the short-term and in the long run.
The surest way to keep MLM management software costs under control is to write up a requirements document that represents the functions and applications that will support the company’s plan. MLM management software providers, whether they are custom programmers (in-house or out-sourced) or vendors of “off-the-shelf” offerings, understand the value in clearly defined expectations. Those expectations are established by the requirements document that both agree upon. By removing the unknowns and surprises, you greatly diminish your exposure for mounting software development or adaptation costs.
