Feature or Fix? A Question for Heads of Finance Purchasing AR Solutions

Feature or Fix? A Question for Heads of Finance Purchasing AR Solutions

Submitted by • July 21, 2020 www.yaypay.com

When I work with my engineering team designing a solution, I always ask them if we are fixing a bug or building out a feature. This is a key question to answer when we are deciding how to build. If it is a bug -- well, short term remediations are valid. If it’s a feature, we must think long term for strategy and impact.

Why is this question important? In engineering, if we are constantly fixing bugs, we are just keeping the existing process operational, as we say, keeping the lights on. We are not adding value to the product. We’re not evolving with our customer’s needs. When looking for an accounts receivable (AR) software solution, I believe you need to evaluate the same way.
