System Sourcing

Purchasing a new system comes with no small amount of risk and uncertainty. Not only do you need to find a system that solves your problems, but it needs to be implemented, users have to be trained, and budgets have to be met. With so many competing products out there that claim to be the best, how do you know if you’re making the right choice, let alone if you’ve even evaluated the right products in the first place?

Many companies use existing staff, several of which will be doing this for the first time, only to find out afterwards that budgets were exceeded, they didn’t recommend the most appropriate system, or the implementation didn’t meet expectations. In addition to all of the hard costs associated with these problems, there’s also soft costs from the loss of productivity, and lowered morale due to employee frustration.

We can help by using our proven methodology in gathering the needs of your business, and finding systems that meet those needs. We have a vast knowledge of products on the market, existing relationships with several competing software manufacturers, and have spent time learning about and reviewing their solutions. Our understanding of solutions, the processes necessary for implementation, user licensing, support and maintenance, total cost of ownership, and the proposal phase will be a benefit to you when it comes to reviewing proposals and selecting the right solution. Let us focus on finding your system so that you can focus on your business.
