Seeking Vendors, the Early Part of Selection
How do you figure out, from within a large range of software vendors, which vendors to start evaluating? I'm curious to see some feedback on what most people

15 questionnaire example  usually come up with 15 to 20 questions that we think are very high-level criteria for a certain type of software system. Questions about criteria like those listed above.

A Traditional "Local Touch" Leader Espouses a More Global Vision


Rather than pursuing the usual route and writing our opinions and analyses of major market trends and then giving the pertinent vendors a chance for a factual review and feedback, we’ve done the opposite, and have asked different vendors about their opinions and their approaches to market trends.

Acronyms Can Simplify Your Life, or Drive You Insane


Acronyms seem really convenient, at first. It’s great using ERP instead of enterprise resource planning, for example. You save precious time (not typing enterprise resource planning a million times) and there’s no way your reader won’t understand what ERP means, right? Well, for ERP this may be true, but all acronyms are not as tidy as they appear. What about BPM, for example? Does it

How Not-for-profit Organizations Can Reduce Costs and Practice Better Financial Management with Microsoft Dynamics GP


One of the biggest “time-wasters” in not-for-profit organizations is the constant reentry of data from one system to another. For example, many organizations must manually reenter information from their fundraising applications to their accounting systems. This is error-prone, costs valuable time, and delays important reporting. The solution lies in finding efficient ways to share information—across the organization.
