The need for technology in our centres continues unabated.  Business is always looking for the ‘next big thing’ which will assist customers, make staff more efficient and in truth, make the business more profitable.  These don’t always go hand in hand.  However the harsh reality of technology is that it more often than not causes problems due to issues previously unthought of. 

The Planning Forum always suggests people do independent research as part of the implementation process, and engage in ongoing networking at vendor user groups and at vendor-independent networking groups to understand how people use the technology themselves as well as understanding alternatives.
