It is time to share where things stand with the Corbu project, and a lot has happened over the summer.
As you may know, I am a retired architect who is trying to come up with a (much) better way for architects to take care of accounting chores - easier, quicker, and better.
Corbu, the name we were considering and which we are going to run with, is now 4-1/2 months old. We have obtained a website domain name and have an almost-ready-for-prime-time website that I will be using to share Best Practices that I have picked up from all my research.
The plan is to make a Go/No-Go decision to get started on the actual software sometime around Thanksgiving. That Go/No-Go decision will happen after we get 1000 responses to the survey.
I think that getting input from 1000 firms will tell us whether we can offer a great solution that will appeal to enough folks to make Corbu viable. So in the meantime I am continuing to ask for surveys and interviews. I now have over 400 survey results, which is on track for the Thanksgiving Go/No-Go decision. If you are a design professional and would like to contribute to my research, take the survey by clicking here.
Here is a PDF of the survey results so far.
If you would like to compare your firm to others like you, just email me with the size or range of sizes that you would like to know about. It is pretty easy to filter my survey results, and I would be happy to share that info with you.
In case you want a recap of the Corbu journey so far, here are the previous posts to catch you up.
