“terratry” A pain pill or an vitamin?
Posted by bulldog
“terratry” is software designed for analysing expenditure on the golf course.
An analogy used by software designers about software; is the software you’re about to purchase to cure a pain, or to ensure good health in your business?
I had never thought of software in this way and promptly looked at ours in a different light; was “terratry” a pain pill or vitamin? Was it designed to solve a problem, cure a pain, or was it to ensure good health?
I came to the conclusion it was for both; it can solve headaches as well as ensure good health, a bit of both; so what do we call it? A pain pill gives relief and makes one feel better but, it does not ensure good health. A vitamin is good for you but, it also cannot ensure good health.
The “terratry” pill however, can cure pain and ensure good health.
Used correctly it cures the pains of overspending, incorrect spending or not knowing where you are spending. It can also ensure good health by empowering the monitoring of expenditure; the “where’s it going” scenario is negated. It also allows for the interpretation of how to improve performance in the future, ensuring good health.
So where does “terratry” fall within the software designers analogy? I’d say we have a “cure all” pill, one of those miracle pills sought by all, which will cure the aches and pains of the golf maintenance business, as well as one that will ensure its good health.

About bulldogI am a semi retired Green Keeper, Golf Course designer, Course constructor, also an avid amateur photographer that loves to visit the South African Game Parks and take photos. My main aim is to improve with practice, and to capture as many of the Birds of the RSA on camera. Feel free to criticise, and comment, I'm open to all suggestions.

As an ex Rhodesian I enjoy the bush life of South Africa and all it has to offer, birds and wild animals being my favourites. I have been lucky to have traveled fairly extensively, specially to those special places, our Game Parks. Golf Courses having been part of my employment has given me the chance to experience some of the different courses within the country of which I blog occasionally . I hope you enjoy what you find on my blogs, I do it for fun and as a way of recording what I've seen and experienced.
