ERP Short List Validation
Already down to a short list of ERP candidates? Consider our ERP Short List Validation Review.
If you have not completed your selection project you may find our short-list validation process useful. For your short list (or final selection) the process evaluates the candidate software’s history for serving companies like yours. Also discussed are vendor status (mainly viability) and software product status (has the software product been modernized and what is the vendor’s commitment to the product).
Select one of two, no bias options to access our ERP Short List Validation Review.
Use our online ERP software comparison database to compare your short list, or final ERP choice, against our comparison criteria. If one of your chosen vendors does not naturally rank in the list, use the search tool in the upper right to determine if the ERP is in the database—and if so it can be added to the list. Keep in mind that about ½ of the ERP offered today are not in this database for basic viability issues.
This option builds upon the data offered in option #1. Using our extensive knowledge on ERP packages and ERP software vendors we discuss your short list and potential weaknesses your selection team may want to investigate and assess. Typically 2 to 10 hours of consulting time is required.
Engleman Associates, Inc. has no financial or other business relationship with ERP software vendors, ERP resellers, or ERP implementers.
Negotiating ERP costs is complicated and the ERP software vendors take advantage of the buyer’s lack of experience. SoftSelect’s experience and influence helped us level the playing field. We clearly saved money and lowered our long term risk.
SoftSelect was a great partner throughout the process of choosing an ERP solution. They helped us control the terms throughout the ERP buying process, and we achieved impressive results in reduced ERP license fees. Having an experienced partner like SoftSelect, helped us negotiate for the products we need and set our expectations for the process of implementing these solutions.
Long term ERP license costs were initially very difficult to calculate. Working with SoftSelect we were able to insist on a predicable ERP license fee approach and achieve much lower initial and ongoing license fee costs.
