Well… I knew that… Ok – confession time. I didn’t know if it was going to be a hit. It is not the best idea to write a book about an extremely specific topic that only affects a small group of people who work within a small group of select companies (now I know that most of my readers are accounting folks so – you are probably doing the math on that last sentence – it is not a very large target audience).
In the previous post (There is a conference for that) I mentioned that I was at the 7th (that’s right – more than one) Annual AP Automation Conference and got the feedback on the book I was looking for. The subject matter of the 8 Pitfalls of Accounts Payable Automation is timely! (YEA)
What does timely mean? Features after Features after Features works when talking with early adaptors. Early Adaptors is a phrase that was introduced in the book “Crossing the Chasm” by Geoffrey A. Moore (It’s a good book and I highly recommend it). Early Adaptors love the new wiz-bang stuff. That phase of AP Automation is over. The new phase is a group of people who need more that “wiz-bang”. They need ROI, partnerships, case validation, and most importantly when they make a decision – they need the project to be successful… that’s what the 8 Pitfalls is about.
In other words – There is more to consider when automating than features.
