Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) launches its ERP for Services Evaluation Center
January 8, 2007
Montreal, Quebec, January 8, 2007-In response to its global demand from IT decision makers in service industries, software evaluation firm Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) (www.technologyevaluation.com) has launched its ERP for Services evaluation center to help companies select the right ERP software solution -- an often challenging process (http://erp.technologyevaluation.com/).
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for Services is defined as an enterprise-wide integrated information system that manages the operations, services and resources for service organizations. Typically, ERP for services systems offer modules that provides the entire back office systems, CRM, time management, expense management, project management, resource management and project management capabilities.
Neil Stolovitsky, senior analyst at TEC, asserts that "as technology becomes increasingly central to service organizations, solutions that can facilitate, streamline, and automate operations are becoming a "must have" in large service organizations".
TEC suggests companies engage in an on-line comparison of ERP solutions before approaching vendors for a request for proposal (RFP). This can save time, money, and staffing resources during the selection process.
According to TEC, ERP solutions often fail because customers lack a solid understanding of their own requirements. TEC believes this is largely a failure in the request for information (RFI) process, by which customers evaluate their short listed vendors.
TEC also says that the sophisticated tools it has developed for evaluating and selecting the right solution providers, particularly at the critical RFI stage, can eliminate these kinds of problems, helping to ensure an accurate, cost efficient ERP selection process.
