Bad business

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on November 22, 2008 09:18 AM
"one competitor had a $5 million bid, and we won with a $500,000 bid....and another in Canada, [the bid from the proprietary software company] was well over $1 million, and ours was $100,000."

This guy is showing very poor business judgement. The only reason to be in business is to make a profit, and it's also nice if you can pay your employees decently, give them good working conditions, and build good team spirit. His bids should have been at least double what they were. He'd still have won the contracts.
