Evaluation and Selection

Expert support through the ERP evaluation and selection process to find the right solutions to meet your objectives.
 

The Challenge

Choosing the right ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or best of breed systems for your organisation presents complex challenges with such a broad and varied solutions market.
 
Investment in the wrong solution can be highly inefficient and expensive for any business, whether in the public or private sector. The right solution can mean achieving true transformational objectives and with the right contract negotiations, offer a long-term value-add, digitalisation of the business, driving efficiencies, cost-savings compared to legacy systems and improved working processes.
 
Often, software vendors are keen to sell their solutions offer little in terms of pre-planning and on-going support throughout the contract term. Contract terms can be challenging, and negotiation is important so that you, as the client, get the best outcomes with cost-efficiencies in mind.
