To effectively control costs and reach toward the real ERP project potential buyers must have certain skill, project methods, capacity, and leadership in the ERP selection and implementation projects. ERP buyers must do this for real success.
Short of this an ERP project will be weakened by typical forces that cause delays, problems, and compromised results. And buyers seriously overpay for application access and services. It's unavoidable.
So what's the right skill, project methods, capacity, and leadership required of your internal team and contractors? To provide this information, Engleman Associates offers a one day workshop called Enterprise Software Life Cycle Management. The agenda includes:
- ERP market status – including a full section on the benefits, risks and hype on Cloud ERP.
- Enterprise Software Strategy Planning – detecting the right time for ERP and satellite application improvements.
- ERP Selection and selection of satellite business applications – with an emphasis on selection factors that are relevant, objectivity in the analysis, effective ERP access cost control, and fixing one-sided commercial terms.
- ERP Implementation Control – how the buyer must lead with proper knowledge and resources to escape the typical ERP implementation and the powerful forces that attempt to drag such projects into an increasing state of chaos and drift.
This workshop is based on the lessons of over 900 ERP projects since 1996 and is delivered by our seasoned experts.
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.
