After performing considerable research, it became apparent that the software problems Recycle California faced were, in fact, common to most businesses, including the realities that:
Recycle California! ultimately struggled along with the first option (having data in several inexpensive programs). After some time it became apparent that the money saved on buying inexpensive, off the shelf programs was lost many times over by having software that did so little to streamline time consuming business processes.
Next, Steve decided to hire a developer to create a home grown custom program to try to solve the long list of problems that came from having data in so many places and software that was too generic. Having software designed specifically for his business felt like a dream come true. Common every day processes could now be completed in less than 1/2 the time. A button could be put virtually anywhere on any screen to do almost any process. Reports could be generated showing the exact data necessary to make key business decisions.
But then… over months and then years of time, it slowly became clear that what seemed like a do-able project (to replace each of the inexpensive programs) seemed to be 100x more time consuming and expensive than anticipated.
To make matters worse, the original developer moved away (and took all of the knowledge in his head with him). That’s when Steve had another light bulb moment: Getting in the software business, when you are already in another business, is a lot harder and lot more expensive than it seems.
Having experienced, first hand, the frustrations of inexpensive, canned software and also the benefits of custom software designed to solve specific business needs, Steve realized that he had found his real passion in life: Helping small business owners simplify and automate business processes (with software).
This led Steve to sell his office paper recycling & shredding business and start OneSource Software Solutions back in the year 2000. Since that time Steve and his team members have focused on designing, selling, and supporting small business software that…
NEW SOLUTIONS FOR NEW PROBLEMS…
