You know the feeling: You’re sitting at your computer in the middle of a project when you’re interrupted by a prompt reading “Software Update.” You’re then asked to “install now, in an hour, or later tonight.” There’s no option to tell the update tool to “leave me alone, I’m in the middle of something.”
A similar process happens on our smartphones. No matter how you have your notifications set up, you inevitably get interrupted with software-update prompts. In a world of distractions, this isn’t particularly disruptive, but it can be annoying. One reason for that is because everything seems to be working fine. What’s the emergency? What’s the rush?
Now, think of this on a larger, more complicated scale. Your heath club’s CRM program or club management software needs to be updated. Unfortunately, it’s not a minor patch or coding correction that requires a simple restart. No, this is an upgrade that changes the interface and operational controls. It may even require learning an entirely new system.
