On a daily basis, we often face situations that require a little bit of flexibility. If I’m in a pinch and don’t have eggs when I’m baking, I can turn to unsweetened applesauce. The restaurant I’m dining at doesn’t have Coke? Sure, I’ll take a Pepsi. These replacements aren’t going to be exactly what I need or want, but they’re close enough and will get the job done.
Some things, however, aren’t interchangeable. A great example of this is lease abstracting services and lease management software. In this case, one shouldn’t replace the other. Software alone isn’t an effective solution. Services alone aren’t an effective solution. The two have to work together in order to create effective lease management.
