Software Upgrades: Evolutionary vs. Revolutionary Model

Too Much Too Soon? Too little too late? LoadSpring™ Delivers a Happy Medium.

For most project management folks, vertical software upgrades fall somewhere between getting a root canal and being stranded on a desert island with your ex mother in law. Either way, you could be in for a world of hurt. While others may force you to migrate to new versions of your software, we accommodate each customer and can provide immediate or gradual migration. (Sigh of relief).

Who’s in Charge Here, Anyway?

Let’s say you want to move to a completely different product, like from Primavera CM to Unifier. Some vendors might shoehorn you into migrating to new versions software you don’t want, need or care about. Your Project Management teams could go through drastic changes without even knowing if the solution will be a success or a total flop.

Fittingly known as “rip and replace,” this risky strategy could cost you millions by turning software into useless shelfware that users will never, ever adopt. Or, you might get stuck with ancient, unsupported software that was out of date back in your college days.

Calm Amidst Chaos

Lucky for you, LoadSpring can tailor even the most complex version changes to match the way you do business.

Instead of an all-or-nothing approach, we ease you into that shiny new software in small, bite-size chunks. That way, you can evaluate versions in parallel, determine what suits your needs, and make an intelligent decision over time.

That way, we minimize your risk and keep user disruption down to a dull roar. We make sure
your transition is smooth, painless and on your terms. Evolutionary.

Everything Old is New Again

If you end up not upgrading right away, we’ll keep supporting your older software — even homegrown systems produced by IT people you haven’t seen for years. Our unified global support is designed to work on all versions of all your applications.

Whatever Works

No matter which upgrades you go with, our LoadSpring Cloud portal’s migration continuity planning, license management and unwavering support will keep all your Project Management ducks in a row. As for getting your users up to speed, our online LoadSpring Academy will boost their knowledge and software adoption in no time at all.

In the end you’ll get the upgrades you need, without losing time, money or sanity.
