Here is your ERP Evaluation road map, designed to navigate the process of evaluating and purchasing the right ERP solution for your organization.
The course of action in making an investment in an ERP solution requires time and attention. We’ve simplified the process for you with an easy to use, reliable road map – Stoneridge Software’s ERP Evaluation Kit. Here at Stoneridge, we know how to guide you through the process and to simplify it. We’ve done it so many times that we know the path. In fact, we know it well enough to draw a map for you.
Who should use this kit?
If your company is assessing an ERP upgrade or a wholesale change, and you are part of the team leading the charge, this is where to begin.
In our experience, Finance and IT professionals are most commonly (and best) situated to drive the preliminaries in the ERP decision. If you’re in the roles of CFO, Controller, CIO, CTO, IT Director/Manager, or any other applicable role, this kit is for you.
How should you use the ERP Evaluation Kit?
This step-by-step map takes you through each phase of the process. If you’re just beginning, start with step one and proceed from there. If you’ve already begun this journey, make a pit stop at the step that seems most relevant. You’ll be sure to find helpful tools throughout the kit, such as:
- Business requirements questionnaire
- Total cost of ownership calculator
- Business decision maker PowerPoint slide deck
- Critical information for getting your team on board
- And more!
Each stop on the map produces an outcome that can be used to make the case and have the conversation with other decision makers in your organization. In the end, you will be outfitted with the critical information for the right decision, and a plan for moving forward.
