Abstract:

When asking a customer when they need something done youve most likely heard the reply, Yesterday Why is this answer so common Possibly its because customers typically do not request products until they are needed. I liken this phenomenon to my lunchtime habits. I dont go looking for food until Im saying out loud, Im starving Both are an exaggeration, but both cause the consumer to seek out those who can deliver products in a rapid and reliable fashion. I know this firsthand through demanding software customers. Sometimes we just cannot get things fast enough. I Googled the combination of the words rapid and reliable from this issues theme to further research this need for fast-paced delivery. In less than a second, my search produced more than 45 million results ranging from patient care recovery to back-up recovery software and from cellular service to cellular genotyping.
