Cleveland, November 1, 2005
M&M Business Solutions, a Meaden & Moore
Company, and Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) launch an alliance to help
companies select the right software application by using leading-edge technology
to provide unbiased, experienced consultation for ERP software selection projects.
M&M Business Solutions, a Meaden & Moore company (www.meadenmoore.com),
a leading, regional consultancy, and Technology Evaluation Centers, Inc. (TEC)
the first web-native technology research enterprise, have formed an alliance
that will provide analyst-vetted software selection assessments to customers
seeking IT and ERP functional and technical expertise.
TEC’s Certified Professional Services Providers program creates opportunities
for TEC to team up with IT professional services providers to deliver superior
software package selections and strategic IT assessments far more efficiently
and effectively than by traditional means.
M&M Business Solutions is an inaugural member of TEC's Certified Professional
Services Provider program. Based in Cleveland, M&M Business
Solutions joins this program to enhance its comprehensive service offerings
and create value for its clients by offering a broad range of expertise in ERP
and technology selection and implementation.
Consultancies such as M&M Business Solutions will utilize TEC's knowledge
base of detailed current data about hundreds of software products and vendors
and its "break-away" eBestMatch decision support tools to analyze
vendor and product data. Such an approach will enable decision-makers to select
software products that best fit their business and systems requirements and
deliver maximum business value.
"We've witnessed firsthand the frustration and waste that occurs when
companies try to adopt enterprise software that just doesn't meet their needs,"
said Lori Burt, director of M&M Business Solutions. "By combining our
expertise in ERP systems with the software selection resources of TEC (www.TechnologyEvaluation.com/press),
we will be in a powerful position to help our clients prioritize their needs
for enterprise software, then select a package from among more than 100 enterprise
software solutions to identify the right fit."
Richard Dean, vice president, strategic initiatives at TEC, welcomes this
alliance to provide better value for clients seeking help with software selection.

ERP software evaluation and selection projects for small and mid-market manufacturers

be a charter member of TEC's Certified Professional Services Provider network.”
