When buying software for your computer, whether for your own personal use or for a business, there are factors you should consider before handing over any money. The questions that you should ask yourself include if the software iscompatible with your current computer operating system; if the software is user-friendly; whether technical support is available; the features offered and whether they are necessary; and whether tweaks to the software will improve the user experience.

The most important and basic factor to consider is whether the software you are considering buying is in fact compatible with your current computer operating system. Compare the software requirements with the specifications of your computer to determine whether the package will run and, if it will, how smoothly. Considering your personal knowledge of computers and the knowledge of anyone else using the software, try to find out how user-friendly it is, too.

Buying software that is easy to use straight away can save a lot of time, money and training. If the software that you need is complex and you feel that you may have some queries, making sure that there is technical support on offer is important. If the software is for a business and there are people of all levels using it, having that reassurance that someone will be able to help out is good. Check the specifications of the software and detail all of the features that are included in it. If you want the software for something in particular, make sure it does everything you need it to. If you have the option to choose between a cheaper package with less features and a more expensive package with loads of features, really think about what you need. If the most basic package has everything you need, don’t get distracted by the top-of-the-range software if you don’t think you’ll use any of it. It’s important to invest in software (particularly if it’s costly) that you know will grow and improve alongside technological developments. Find out if you can upgrade the software for free when needed and how regularly it will be updated.
