Many potential buyers of manufacturing software are simply stalled in the selection process due to conflicting vendor claims and confusion about whether the software will really resolve their challenges.

Evaluating and selecting an ERP solution is a daunting task few companies are qualified to do. The result is a poor selection decision or a decision that is never made.

Choosing software is more than looking at vendor demos and asking questions. Ninety percent of so called software selection services simply push your name out to the vendors. Their value add to your search is between slim and none. The real value has to do with the process of collaborating with staff on their challenges, evaluating and improving processes, facilitating intra company communications, explaining to staff what state of the art software is capable of doing and answering any and all questions along the path to evaluating and choosing an ERP solution. If you can relate to any of these issues, then consider the two options we offer:

DISCLOSURE: We are not a lead generation service and do not sell your name to vendors.

  We had a sense of what we did not like about our current ERP system but we lacked a clear vision and statement of what we wanted and how to get there. Your help in narrowing the field bought us at least 6 months, if not more and your understanding of the software’s capability helped us see a fuller vision of the software we selected.
