Technology Evaluation Centers Inc. (TEC), a global enterprise software analyst
firm, recently launched its on-line ERP, SCM, Financials, and Human Resources
Evaluation Centers in Spanish to serve Latin America and Spain more effectively.
These evaluation centers help project managers, consultants, and decision makers
compare and qualify the most appropriate systems based on their own unique priorities.
"TEC is the only global technology company of its type," said Barry
Melsom, Vice President – Global Marketing and Sales. "Spanish is
the first of many different versions of TEC to adequately penetrate local market
requirements and more than adequately fulfill local needs."
TEC's service in Spanish started in March 2005, and since then, it has helped
over 3,600 evaluations through our ERP, SCM, Financials, and Human Resources
evaluation centers. It also provides Spanish-speaking professionals with the
latest news through a daily newsletter, which has experienced a 120 percent
weekly growth in readership since March 1st. This indicates that TEC's content
and services have been very well received, filling a void in the Spanish-speaking
market for impartial enterprise software expertise.
According to IDC, in 2004 companies invested $26.4 billion (USD) in IT in Latin
America, and the software segment exceeded $4.1 billion (USD) that same year.
Moreover, they are expecting a growth of over 10 percent.
TEC developed the unique concept of evaluation centers, which offers comprehensive
knowledge to help managers, consultants, and decision makers reduce the risk,
cost, and time related to enterprise software selections through a detailed
and complete evaluation.
Each evaluation center has a knowledge base associated with it, containing
detailed information on software applications. Application manufacturers and
vendors fill out a complete RFI including thousands of criteria. This information
is vetted by experienced IT analysts before it is listed in the appropriate
evaluation center. End users then use these knowledge bases to specify and prioritize
their technical and functional requirements. TEC's patented algorithm and analysis
engine for its evaluation centers, eBestMatch™, identifies the applications
and vendors that best match end users'needs.
TEC also offers material to support its evaluation centers, such as RFP templates,
white papers, an IT vendor directory, a consultant directory, vendor and application
reports, articles, and a free daily newsletter in Spanish and English, which
contains relevant information on the IT world and its impact on organizations.
