Don’t Let the Fear of Lock-In Hold You Back: Why Kompass BMS is the Solution You Need  


Are you hesitant to switch to a new software solution because you’re afraid of getting locked in with long running contracts or getting your data stuck in a system? We understand the pain points of being tied into a system that doesn’t meet your needs. We’ve been there, done that. That’s why we make it easy for you to switch to Kompass and from Kompass. We offer a highly flexible solution which you can integrate seamlessly into your existing systems without any worries of being locked in. 

Before we go more into the details of what we offer, let’s talk about the potential costs and drawbacks of being locked into a software solution.  

Many systems lock you into long running contracts with severe penalties if you want to exit early and even when you want to switch, they make it difficult or impossible to get the data out of their system.  This can lead to loss of data, disruption of business processes, and a significant waste of time and resources as well as a headache for many – we’re sure. So, to avoid that, it’s important to carefully consider these factors when choosing a software solution to ensure long-term success.  

A report by Forrester Research found that some Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vendors may charge up to 90% of the remaining contract value for early termination, which can be a significant financial penalty for organizations – Forrester Research report “SaaS Vendor Viability Checklist”. Another survey by BetterCloud found that 38% of IT leaders reported difficulties when trying to switch SaaS vendors, with data migration being the top challenge. This indicates that being locked into a SaaS solution can make it difficult and time-consuming to switch to another solution – BetterCloud 2021 State of SaaS Management Report.

We have tried several other solutions, but none can even come close to what Kompass can achieve. We have wasted so much time in trying to make other options work.

Our flexible approach ensures a low-risk option for switching, so you can rest assured that you won’t face any lock-in situations. You can cancel your contract with a month’s notice and an initial onboarding period while you only pay for the minimum users means that there are no high costs if you find that the workflows don’t fit your business.  

We strive to have customers that love Kompass and understand that different businesses might have different approaches.  Even if you have used Kompass for a long time, the system makes it easy to export all the data via CSV/Excel and JSON files should you ever want to change to a different platform. Additionally, Kompass is fully based on a REST API, so it can be integrated with other systems and the data can be exported through that mechanism also.
