We know process is the way to go for an ERP vendor evaluation project, but what would that process entail?

An earlier blog entry I discussed the benefits of following a process to embark on an ERP vendor evaluation project. I believe most organizations would agree a proven, well-defined process would bring significant benefits to their software selection project and unveil the vendor with the best fit for their organization. So what would a proven, well-defined process look like?

Glad you asked. The process would contain concise steps for a project team to follow to ensure the right solution was found in a timely fashion.

Seven Process Steps for an ERP Vendor Evaluation Project

  1. Planning
  2. Requirements
  3. Vendor Analysis
  4. Demonstrations
  5. Implementation Analysis
  6. Financial Analysis
  7. Recommendation

I consider each step to be important, so I will cover them individually in future blog postings.
