Reduce the stress of business software decisions with erp evaluation tools

Are you or your team beginning the evaluation process for a new ERP or business software? It can be an overwhelming decision and you might be wondering where to start. We’ve encountered many individuals in this situation and have put together a set of ERP evaluation tools and guideposts to help you and your team through this process. Called simply, the ERP Evaluation Kit from Stoneridge Software, we’ve packed it full of tips and features to ensure your decision-making process is a smooth one! Back in the day, companies would replace their ERP solution every five to seven years. Today it’s much more infrequent, maybe every ten to fifteen years. It’s really hard to be good at something you do every ten to fifteen years.

That’s why we put this kit together for you. Throughout the year, we talk with many companies who are evaluating business software. Some of them do a great job of evaluating ERP and then arrive at the correct solution that best suits them, and others don’t. There are two ways to go as you evaluate your ERP. First, you can hire a selection firm to come in and help you, which is a very valid approach. They’ll be able to provide value and help you every step of the way. However, that approach isn’t for everybody. The alternative approach is to do it yourself and go at it by using your own internal expertise, and your own team to do the ERP evaluation. That’s really what this toolkit is intended to be used for. Those companies that are going at it alone; that are looking to do it with their own team.

We pulled together a set of tools we use at Stoneridge Software that we’ve used with and provided our prospects with to help them with this process. This kit is really to help you on your journey. Think of it as a roadmap: To help you get to a successful ERP implementation. ERP projects are complex. Assessing your needs and determining which technology is the right fit is time-consuming. It takes time and effort from you and your team to pull this together, but that’s not the most difficult part. The hardest part that we’ve uncovered is for companies to get approval from their management teams, a board of directors, or their private equity firms.

We invite you to take a look at this kit and see if it provides value for you and your company. We can assure you that it will. We’ve tested it and have been using these tools ourselves with our clients for a long time. We’d love for you to take a look and give us some feedback. Feel free to send us any questions you may have along your journey to ERP success. We want to ensure that your ERP research and implementation is a success right from the get-go.
