What To Look For In A Software Selection Consultant

Independence

When you come to us for software selection consulting services, you can do so with the knowledge that we'll provide our unbiased opinion. As an independent consultant, we don't have reseller relationships with ERP or other business software venders. That means we only have your best interests in mind. We will provide you with our honest assessment of potential solutions. We'll evaluate everything from systems' functionality, to vendors' track records, and help you choose the software solution that best fits your business needs.

Flexibility

Every business is unique. So it's unsurprising that an estimated 80% of companies that were selecting new software in 2019 chose a customizable option. We will work with you to decide whether an off-the-shelf system works for you. And if you require a more custom solution, our team of experienced developers can build a program that is tailor-made for your business.

Support

Our job isn't finished once you've made a decision on your company's new software system. We will assign you a project manager who will work with you and the vendor to ensure the program is implemented without disrupting your workflow. We also offer technical support and employee training to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Our Software Selection Experience

Let our knowledgable team of consultants take the stress out of selecting a new system. We have assisted numerous businesses select new software for specific departments and/or for the entire company. Our consultants have experience selecting and implementing various types of software, from ERPs, CRMs, MESs, and accounting systems, to asset management, fundraising, and eProcurement programs.

    Prior to contacting vendors we will conduct a review to gain a comprehensive understanding your company's processes. We will identify workflow inefficiencies, as well as your strategic goals and objectives. This will ensure we choose a system that will streamline your operations, and continue to do so in the future.

  • Identify Vendors

    Based on the information we gather, we create a list of 4-6 vendors we think will be a good fit. We then draft either a request for proposal (RFP) or request for information (RFI) and distribute it to those companies.

  • Vender Review

    We assess potential vendors using a standard grading system, allowing us to compare them based on the criteria that is most relevant to your business. After the evaluation phase, we will schedule final presentations from 2 vendors.

  • Reference Checking

    We're not going to make any final recommendations until we've checked out the vendor ourselves. We will visit each reference company at least once to discuss pertinent information such as their service, support, ability to perform on schedule, and the budget.

  • Contract Negotiations

    Software contracts are unique and complex. Our team has experience evaluating contracts and software proposals as a precursor to a full legal review.
