System Selection


We have a proprietary methodology which we use to identify requirements and assess software packages, their suppliers and implementation partners. This methodology allows us to be objective in selecting the package, package supplier and implementation partner that are most closely able to match our client’s needs. The methodology works most effectively when client staff are closely involved in the work. This ensures that we gain a full understanding of the business and that the staff fully understand our approach and are able to buy in to the results of the exercise.


In overview, the methodology includes the following steps:


Definition of Requirements

Identification of Potential Packages, Suppliers and Implementation Partners

Evaluation of the Options

Produce a Shortlist of Suppliers

Software Supplier Visits


Present Final Report

Review the Supplier’s Contracts

Assist in Negotiating the Price and the Terms of the Contracts
