Recently Harry and I were shopping in the art supply store. I was drooling over paints, brushes, and everything else. I told myself that the brushes and paint were somehow different than what I already had. For Harry, it's those sets of screwdrivers and rachety thingys from the home improvement store (that look suspiciously like the four sets we already own).
Thankfully, we do (usually) realize that while we may want it, we don't need it, or it's a duplicate of something we already have.
While we were shopping I had a realization: Many of our clients do the same thing with software. They believe that they need to buy more software to do certain things when they probably already have what they need. They just don't realize it.
A quick Google can yield an answer. "What software will (do the thing you want to do)?"
Try it. You'll be surprised.
