    Profit Principles

    Here are the principles that guide the development of sustainably profitable software-enabled solutions.

      Sustainability

      In the same way that Mother Nature depends on the sun's energy to support life on Earth, every business depends on profit for its long-term viability. Profit fosters a harmonious relationship between a business and its customers, creating a cycle of mutual benefit. With a healthy profit margin, a business can continually invest in the advancement of its solutions.
