It's alarming—the failure rates for new software implementations continue to be as high as 70 percent. Companies ask me every day what they can do to avoid having their projects fail.
Your best bet is usually to tap into the knowledge and expertise of people experienced in software selection and implementation—and not try to go through it alone if you don't have the expertise in-house. The hard fact is, selecting and implementing software is tricky and there's no shortage of ways to go wrong. But there are also things you can do to help make sure your project is a success.
At Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC), our clients have found one effective solution: take advantage of TEC's software evaluation and selection services.
In a recent survey of businesses that dealt with TEC and compared their experiences with other IT projects that they did alone, 90 percent of businesses said they would recommend TEC's services—without hesitation.

- minimize the risk of making the wrong software selection;
