ERP and CRM software projects are notorious for under-delivering on their intended business value. The reasons vary but most often include both product-centric and people-centric issues. Analyzing the root-cause of these issues, we've developed a four-part model to aid business technology managers and stakeholders in making the best ERP software selection for their company. We have also aligned our IT strategic planning and implementation methodology to eliminate these predictable issues and position our clients to maximize their technology project ROI.
Decision Criteria For Making The Best ERP Software Selection For Your Company
There are four cornerstones to making a good business management software selection to enable your CFO Evolution. (The CFO Evolution is the people, process, and technology initiatives needed to transform your CFO organization into a strategic business leader. Click here to learn more about The CFO Evolution.)
- Select a Business Services Partner first. Use their expertise to help you define your business requirements, guided by the bigger picture of what you aim to accomplish within your CFO organization.
- Develop your IT Strategy, putting an emphasis on selecting the optimal IT platform on which to standardize your organization.
- Select the Technology Product Partner that best aligns with your IT strategy, and work with your Business Services Partner to help define/refine your application requirements and determine your software solution criteria.
- After this due diligence is complete, then select the Business Application(s) that best meet your software solution criteria.
To qualify whether an Armanino is a good fit for your needs, schedule a no-cost, no-obligation Needs Assessment meeting with us. A Needs Assessment is simply our initial in-person meeting to better understand your business goals, expectations and needs.
When your needs include potential use of Microsoft Dynamics products (or any of the other software products we support), we use this meeting to identify which edition, modules and deployment options are of most interest to your company. It's also an opportunity to discuss what key elements you would like to see in a future product demonstration.
