If you've ever been through a software selection project, you know just how difficult it can be—and how easy it is to go wrong. You need to clearly understand your business needs, filter out vendor hype to compare solutions objectively, and get your stakeholders to agree not just on a solution, but on the right solution.
With so much to consider—and so much at stake—trying to manage the selection process with spreadsheets and best guesses can leave you frustrated, behind schedule, and wondering whether you really made the right choice.
TEC's Evaluation Centers can help you select your next enterprise software system the right way. Every day, companies like yours use TEC's Evaluation Centers to make rational, justifiable software selections more quickly and cost-effectively than they could by using traditional methods. Each Evaluation Center is a complete, online software selection environment that contains everything you need to make an objective decision—so you can stay focused on what's best for your business.
Select your next enterprise software systems the right way.
Our Software Selection Services team can help you research software solutions.
TEC's Evaluation Centers are also home to TEC Advisor—our online software evaluation and selection tool. TEC Advisor is designed to help you manage and make sense of the massive amount of information you'll gather during your selection project, without ever losing sight of your business requirements.
Gathering business requirements can be difficult and time-consuming. TEC Advisor saves you time and trouble by providing a structured environment for defining and prioritizing your requirements. It's as easy as choosing what you need from one or more comprehensive models of enterprise software features and functions.
TEC Advisor contains detailed information about enterprise software solutions—collected directly from vendors and validated by our analysts. You can quickly discover the extent to which vendors support thousands of enterprise software features and functions—the same features and functions you require to run your business—and compare different solutions to find the one that's right for you.
TEC Advisor is powered by the ebestmatch™ decision support engine. Using TEC's patented algorithms, ebestmatch goes far beyond the analytical capabilities of traditional decision support systems (DSS) to compare solutions and reveal the true best-fit for your organization. Using easy-to-understand graphs and charts, you can see what drives each solution's ranking and perform sensitivity analysis to see whether the top-ranked vendor will stay on top as your priorities change.
TEC's Evaluation Centers bring together our latest and most relevant articles, reports, case studies, and white papers, so you can thoroughly research the type of software you're evaluating. You'll also find links to related Request for Information (RFI) or
