London, United Kingdom, August 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Recent reports in online media, giving voice to large software companies, appear to suggest that the Owner/Manager software vendors might face difficult times. According to them, cashflow issues, falling revenues, and falling bank support appear to paint a worrying picture of owner/managed small software vendors.
It seems that some of the large Vendors are taking a pop at the backbone of the UK economy and as the majority of those in business, are Owner/Managers. To imply the problems they may face is also to imply that small business owners do not possess good management, cashflow and marketing skills.
Director of eBoss, David Lyons, " I disagree with these assumptions and in fact I want to defend here the role of owner/managers in the market of software provision. I believe the large vendors are the ones who need to be careful in these times, especially because they do not have the flexibility to respond to the fluctuations of demand in the way smaller businesses are able to do. They will need to pay attention to how they market and manage their products in particular in relation to cost and flexibility."
In spite of the pressures that owner/managersl may be feeling due to falling revenues, as quoted by some large companies, eBoss claims to have examples of small businesses including their own who are in fact experiencing huge increase in sales.
"In contrast to the panic driven comments on presumed dramatic falls in revenue I can say from my experience, business is increasing, and in my opinion, we are all refining the way we manage our costs and cash flows while maintaining our credit with the banks.", David Lyons, MD of eBoss.
It appears that a lot of recruiters are turning to cost efficient and improved online recruitment software
database systems, in other words ditching their expensive inflated license fee for more flexible monthly subscriptions, and in the process wiping more 50% off their current costs instantly.
It's also said that large companies are positioning themselves as if they were the solution for owner/manager vendors to merge. Are they aware that most owner/manager business thrive and survive on their innovative technologies and their flexibility to continually refine their systems to the demands and the feedback of their clients, therefore the small owner/managers are the ones who will survive the ups and downs more easily.
"Yes. I am defending the role of owner manager in the market, It's a fact some of the small owner/manager systems are more efficient, easier to use and cost less than half of the offerings from the larger vendors. For example, the eBoss Online Recruitment Software system is so easy to use, you are up and running in a matter of minutes, and there is need to travel off site to attend any training school", David Lyons Managing Director of eBoss, he goes on to say "We are the people feeling the pulse of the industry on a daily basis and recruiters tell us what they are looking for in a system, we come from a recruitment background, we designed it, and the contributions we get from our client base in the way of feedback and suggestions, continue to shape the system, and unlike the large vendors, we don't charge for upgrades."
eBoss has been in business for over 5 years, our software goes from strength to strength, they retain over 97.5% of our new clients over a sample 1 year period. They offer useful recruitment solutions
for example, bespoke amends to make the system match a businesses requirements, they do not charge for migrations. The majority of their outgoings are invested in state of the art servers and disaster recovery systems.
