Monroe, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/16/2014 -- No Risk Automation (www.NoRiskAutomation.com), founder John Hayes explained that vendors and their salespeople get paid to sell their equipment and their solutions. There is a vested interest from the vendor’s point of view to sell noted Hayes, “Very few vendors care about the 'Square Peg/Round Hole' analogy when selling equipment, because they sell hammers and when you sell hammers everything looks like a nail. The potential is there to overlook a winning application if the vendor does not have the appropriate tool in his arsenal to solve the problem.”
Hayes pointed out that the converse is also true. If a manufacturer or distributor selects the wrong vendor for the right application they may run into years of problems that can cost many times the initial cost of the system.
