A U.S.-based biotechnology company was looking for a fully integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to replace its underused and overly complex legacy system. The new system would need to include functionality typically found in engineer-to-order (ETO) and process ERP systems.
To find the right solution, the company turned to TEC for a custom evaluation and selection project.
Starting with a list of fifteen 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 fifteen solutions and develop a shortlist of the 4 most promising ones for in-depth evaluation.
TEC also helped the company collect market data, and prepare scripts for formal demonstration session—a key component of the final selection process.
