Digital transformation is happening all around us as our lives become more dependent on internet technology. Yet, whereas much of this transition is driven by consumer desire for ease, speed, and convenience, businesses are sometimes reluctant to make the requisite investments to meet this growing demand for digitization. Doing so is often seen as prohibitively expensive.

5 Best Free Software Programs to Help Small Businesses Grow

Posted on Jun 25, 2019
As a budding entrepreneur, you may be tempted to splurge on fancy offices, cool gadgets, and glossy business cards — since these investments can help make your newly formed company seem more legitimate. Yet, covering expenses like these is one of the primary reasons why so many businesses fail in their first few years. They have more money going out than coming in, and it’s just a matter of time before these startups have to close their doors.

Why You Need an Inventory Management App for Your Business

Posted on Feb 26, 2019
When you launch a store or restaurant, managing inventory is relatively straightforward. As items come and go, you can track everything using nothing more than a simple spreadsheet.  Yet, this inventory management system isn’t sustainable for long:  It’s incredibly time-consuming to track inventory and update records by hand.  You have to “eyeball” when stock is getting low — this can be hit or miss.

3 Tips for Integrating to a Payment Gateway

Posted on Sep 21, 2018
Weaving payment tools into the applications you build was once seen as a major cost for independent software vendors (ISVs):  You have to invest more development time to integrate payments. Your clients become more exposed to security risk (i.e., fraud). You have to worry about payment-related patches and updates.  While these costs haven’t disappeared, the ability to provide a frictionless payment experience allows you to reach a much larger audience. End-users want turn-key solutions, not patchworks of third-party add-ons.

Payment Functionality ISVs Need to Incorporate

Posted on Sep 05, 2018
If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know that independent software vendors (ISVs) are increasingly expected to provide their end-users with seamless payment functionality.  This isn’t an industry requirement, per se.  But if the applications you design don’t come with payment processing capabilities, then perspective customers will simply find an ISV that can provide these things.

6 Payment Security Tips for ISVs

Posted on Aug 28, 2018
Open source contamination is the bane of many independent software vendors (ISVs). If even a tiny snippet of open source code makes it into your build, the entire application might legally be reclassified as “open source.”  To avoid this, developers must invest a lot of time creating bespoke code entirely from scratch. As an ISV, there’s another type of “contamination” of which you need to be aware — one that has to do with payment security. Or more specifically, PCI compliance.

4 Tips for Making Payment Integration Easier for ISVs

Posted on Aug 06, 2018
As an independent software vendor (ISV), you already know that end users expect turn-key solutions that work out of the box. The more tightly you can integrate payments with the solutions you provide, the fewer headaches your clients will face. That’s because there won’t be as many interoperability issues or moving parts for them to handle.  Meeting your end users’ expectations will require extra effort and development time. That’s no small feat — especially if you have limited resources.

Helping Hotels Compete in an Airbnb World

Posted on Feb 05, 2018
In 2017, Airbnb recorded an estimated 100 million “guest arrivals.” Not too shabby for a company that’s only 10 years old. Airbnb’s success is bad news for the larger hospitality industry. The aforementioned number represents 100 million potential travelers who could’ve — but didn’t — stay with conventional hotels and motels.  Admittedly, not everyone who stays at an Airbnb home is in the market for traditional lodging. Like Couchsurfing.com, the platform largely caters to budget travelers who go abroad only because affordable accommodations exist in their destination cities. This explains why for every 10 percent increase in Airbnb guests, there’s only a 0.35 percent decrease in hotel revenues.
