How do you avoid the “Big Dollar Mistake” when selecting software? Whom do you trust? The vendor? The techie who’s in love with the software? Website reviews?
It’s time for an unbiased approach. While there are many reasons why software investments fail to deliver value, an inadequate selection process usually lies at the heart of the problem: the failure to involve stakeholders, to understand key objectives and to balance the competing interests of executives, users and vendors.
Our time-tested process for software selection ensures executive involvement, gathers input from users and levels the playing field. We develop apples-to-apples comparison information regarding products, services and support, to protect your interests throughout selection, contracting, implementation and ongoing use.
We have deep experience helping clients make the right software vendor selections for their organizations. From financial, EMR (electronic medical records), ERP (enterprise resource planning), HR and fleet management software to insurance process improvement, we have the know-how to make the most of your software investment.
We apply the same methodology used for software selection to other vendor selections, providing a simple yet comprehensive approach to:
- Vendor analysis/selection
- Managed services/outsourcer selection
- Telecommunications and phone system selection
- Infrastructure vendor selection (systems management, network build-out, firewall management, etc.)
