We had a great time visiting with many of you at NACBA’s 24th annual convention in San Francisco. One of the more interesting vendor booths had a person demonstrating a virtual reality system. You could put the head goggles on and hold a couple of controllers in your hand and kill zombies or, more to my liking, be in a peaceful underwater world exploring a shipwreck and experience giant whales swim by. My staff now wants one for the office – maybe Santa will listen.
Of course, virtual reality is great when you want to be in a virtual world, but it’s not so great when you buy software that makes a lot of promises and doesn’t deliver. Make sure you do your due diligence when looking into new software products; make sure you ask a lot of questions and get a good history (see our list of questions below). Also, see who else in the bankruptcy community they associate with (who their friends are). Your business is too important to gamble with.
