  • Here are some of Rocket Aldon’s more well-known customers.
    Many of these customer have come to Rocket Aldon from other change management vendors such as SoftLanding, MKS, and ARCAD
    Most of these companies came to Aldon because they experienced one or more of the same pains that you are feeling today.
    Unfortunately, because of the public nature of this webinar, we can’t name names
    but we will share with you some of their stories, and I will explain some of the reasons they gave to us.
  • We talk with prospects every day, and these are the top five reasons they are unhappy with their current vendor
    You are here because you are starting to see these cracks in the foundations.
    What I’d like to do, is open up a brief poll now and ask you all to take 10 seconds to select the TOP THREE of these issues that you feel the most today.
    While I will share the totals, your individual votes are completely anonymous and are not being recorded.
  • This first one is huge and it’s all about trust.
    I worked with one customer who told me he personally devotes may late nights and long weekends double-checking what was scheduled for promotion.
    He told me he had absolutely no trust, no confidence in his current solution to do it correctly on its own
    Related objects were missed causing level checks, source and objects didn’t match, objects weren’t compiled correctly, authorities weren’t correct…..
    It all lead to the ultimate disaster….application and website downtime.

  • Onto point 2
    I’d like you to ask yourself if you are impressed with the level of investment in R&D that you are currently getting from your existing vendor.
    I recent article in Time Magazine that said the average company today invests 2 to 3 percent of its revenue back into new developments.
    Rocket has continued Aldon’s tradition of investing over 25% into R&D. TWENTY FIVE percent! Every year.
    And it shows.
    As I mentioned earlier, MKS, SoftLanding and Aldon have all been acquired by other companies.
    Ours is truly an example of a corporate acquisition done the right way.

  • The next pain that our prospects most frequently voice is a complaint about on-going costs.
    Isn’t this supposed to be the other way around??? Returns go up as costs go down?
    We heard from prospects who said the new owners are increasing maintenance because the previous owners didn’t charge enough for the software when they originally sold it.
    Another prospect got very alarmed when the staff devoted to the IBM i started leaving the company shortly after acquisition and they were not replaced.
    In short, they were seeing a definite INVERSE ROI curve pattern repeating over the last few years.

  • Let’s be honest, putting multiple, highly trained humans behind desks just to answer questions from your existing customers is a huge expense for any organization.
    It takes a company that is extremely committed to its customers and its solution to do this right.
    Our prospects with other solutions found that their current vendor was really cutting corners here.
    Like the last slide, you start to wonder why you are paying so much in maintenance for so little support.

  • Here the last of our five points.
    When you originally bought your solution, it was probably the best for you at the time, no doubt!
    But don’t be afraid to sit up now, years later, and said “HEY! What have you done for me lately??”
    Ask yourself, What was the last new feature or function that your vendor announced that really excited you?
    Who is doing all the heavy-lifting for your audit proof, you, or the solution?
    And does your current solution play well with the other kids in the sandbox, or are you constantly stepping in, making them play nice with each other?

  • This final slide of our presentation really summarizes why Rocket Aldon is the company you can trust, the company you keep.
  • Reading your minds again, you are now thinking
    “I’d love to switch, but it would take months and I’d have to re-invent everything!”.
    “I just don’t have the time to do this.” or “It’s too big of a risk”.
    Obviously, we’ve heard this many times from those that have switched before you.
    We have learned a great deal about how to efficiently, effectively and safely perform the migration.
    You are in good hands with our well-seasoned Professional Services team!
    We provide simple conversion processes, to enable an easy migration, and a typical implementation for us, is 5-8 days, and you can be fully up and running.
