ERP System for Health Care


A U.S.-based regional healthcare support network was looking for a distribution enterprise resource planning (ERP for distribution) solution for its medical supply and equipment sales division, including a financials module to be used by other divisions. The news system was intended to replace an in-house legacy system that had reached its end-of-life stage.
To find the right solution, the company turned to TEC for a software evaluation and selection project.
Starting with a list of 10 qualified solutions, TEC issued requests for information (RFIs) to each of the vendors. Based on the RFI responses, the company was able to compare the 10 solutions and develop a shortlist of the four most promising ones for in-depth evaluation.
TEC also helped the company collect market data, and prepare scripts for a formal demonstration session—a key component of the final selection process.
