ERP Software Selection Process

The goal of our selection methodology is to focus on the key critical processes or criteria that drives your business, not the common functionality or hundreds of functional points that are common in todays mature ERP systems. 

An important aspect of the ERP selection process is for executives to understand this is the first step in a learning process for the project team and executives.  Open discussion and communication around critical business processes, drivers, and future needs that drive the selection process is a critical launching point towards laying a foundation for the later ERP implementation.

ERP Software Selection - Keeping it Focused

The "Funnel" approach detailed below prevents spending time on general requirements that divert precious effort and resources away from evaluating the critical needs of your business model. Areas such as unique inventory processes, sales order flow, costing, production planning, distribution,order fulfillment, and financial reporting may represent a few of those areas.  Concentrating on these key processes allow the team to focus, keep it as simple as possible, and quickly present options to management. Remember, the ERP selection process is not a data gathering exercise; it's goal is to create a foundation for the company to make an informed and timely decision on a long term strategic software partner.
