No doubt, every sector demands innovation. Innovation does not necessarily have to be something big. A small seed of change can be a remarkable transformation to kindle the fire of development .For instance, a simple POS can be used to replace the traditional cash-use system. Likewise, a Restaurant Management System helps restaurant businesses to improve operational efficiency. Here are some reasons why people hesitate to use automated systems-
Though human tendency looks for a change, the context of Nepal speaks something different. We are afraid to take initiative and embrace change. Excluding banks and large corporations, small and medium sized business still hesitate to integrate new systems. The rooted manual system has tightened its grip strongly.
Integrating a software demands for the hardware and software cost. So, the investment in additional resources can give rise to second thoughts.
Awareness is key. The system cannot be changed until and unless a need hits the user. Mushrooming industries enter the market. But, lack of technical awareness makes it difficult to bring about change. Likewise, people in the management level are mostly from non-technical backgrounds which creates a turbulence in making a change.
We lack the patience to wait. Automated systems slowly track progress and give results only after a certain period of time. So, demanding instant results or sales is one of the reason why people hesitate software integration in the first place.
There is lack of legal education in Nepal. If the system has to do with money transaction, people fear government interference, which is nothing more than a myth. An open honest system that abides with the rules does no harm to your business.
