Click the image at left for a full sized version of an email that I just received not 10 minutes ago. Here’s another from July 1, 2010 where the sender was kind enough to leave in the names of all the consultants that were emailed the RFP (Tip: Never think you’re the only one).
It illustrates part of that’s wrong with the ERP marketplace.
Don’t misunderstand me – it’s not that I think it’s wrong for a prospect to send around this email.
What saddens me is that the prospect likely has at least in part mis-diagnosed their needs — and probably will receive two or three sight unseen quotes from other VARS.
