1. BPM Comes Alive Sales Tool -- Don't Sell Commodity Functionality


    from John Morris Added 32 1 1

    THIS VIDEO SHOWS FUNCTIONALITY THAT GIVES A BUSINESS ADVANTAGE TO THE USER. THE LAST SLIDE ("D") HAS A DEPENDENCY THAT CANNOT BE ACCOMMODATED BY MOST BPM SOFTWARE, WITHOUT CODING. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- How can you close a deal? With all the hype out there about this technology and that product? For sure you'll have a use case -- and a business case. And executive support. But what about your technology? I've seen too many technology demonstrations where the real value of the product is not shown! Instead demonstrations concern "commodity functionality". And the question of who wins the deal becomes a lottery, or a golf game. That's old-style sales. This is a technology world now. And you need to put your best foot forward. Of course as a great sales person, you have to make sure you have a well qualified customer, and a decent relationship, and real business pain, and readiness to move, and budget, and an executive champion. But you still have to show you can do the job. And this is where you can win -- if you don't turn your product into a commodity! The video here shows an example of a "technology advantage" in action. The specific technology is business process management (BPM) software technology. And recall that BPM software buyers have seen it all before. But as shown in the sequence of four animations in the video here, the proposed software does something that many people "in the room" won't expect And that unexpected is this: The software (for which this presentation was developed) gives complete freedom to the business executive to specify how they want their process to run. This freedom is a huge advantage to business people. Because without this freedom, you have to "bring in the coders". And bringing in the coders means you lose much of the benefit of going BPM in the first place. BPM-without-restrictions is a sales advantage. But only if you can show why it's an advantage. Because the "other sales guys" are not going to highlight how difficult their products are to work with. BPM is the best technology that should be more successful. And the reason that BPM technology has been often frustrating is that behind the scenes most products are not yet fully capable of code-free business process. So the products that are more code-free, can win. If the huge difference between "executable BPMN" and everything else is made clear. And it's a big business difference. In your rush to sell, don't "hide your light". Technology makes a difference. Don't turn your achievement into an also-ran commodity!
