Getting your selection right

Software changes by the second in today's day and age. Applications and AI have automated the way we work like never before, so it is important to have the right team around you to guide you through how you can improve your business process using technology.

Work smarter...not harder

We partner with you every step of the way to ensure that you not only select the right software, but ensure that you obtain the best deal too.

Our software selection offering is a perfect example of how much we value partnering with businesses.  Our methodical process begins by exploring the specific requirements for the business and what actions they aim to achieve.  From these requirements, we invite vendors to tender for the project and provide us with how their solution can either provide for, or be modified to suit the requirements of the business.  We liaise with the vendors on your behalf throughout the journey.

Once a short list is selected, we then test the application using demo data.  This way, we can actually see if the vendor is providing what they say they do.  Finally, once we have satisfied all testing and deliverable requirements, we negotiate the best contract on the business’s behalf.  Enabling you to focus on your customers, knowing that we have your best interests at heart.

Partnering with you every step

It is not just a matter of recommending a software and leaving it to you to negotiate and implement…we are with you every step of the way to best ensure you get what you pay for and receive the ultimate value.

Frequently asked questions

Software selection refers to the process of evaluating and choosing a software application that meets an organisation’s specific needs and requirements. It involves identifying the functionalities of the software, assessing its suitability for the organisation, and selecting the one that meets the organisation’s goals and objectives.

Software selection criteria refer to the factors that an organisation considers when evaluating and choosing software. Some of the common criteria include the software’s functionality, ease of use, compatibility with existing systems, costs, and vendor support.

Software selection is critical to an organisation’s success in achieving its goals and objectives. Careful selection ensures that the software meets the organisation’s specific needs, streamlines processes, and enhances productivity. Poor software selection can lead to inefficiencies, cost overruns, and negatively impact operations.

Involvement in the software selection process should include representatives from all departments that will be impacted by the software, including IT, finance, operations, and management. End-users should also be involved as they provide valuable insights into the software’s usability and its overall impact on their work processes.

Several factors can influence the selection of software applications. Some of these factors include the organisation’s budget, infrastructure, operations, goals, and objectives. Other factors to consider include user requirements, the software’s functionality, scalability, integration with other systems, and vendor support.

The most important step in software selection and implementation is identifying the organisation’s specific needs and requirements. This ensures that the selected software aligns with the organisation’s goals, streamlines processes, and enhances overall productivity.

Businesses can determine their software needs and requirements by conducting a thorough analysis of their existing processes and identifying areas of inefficiencies or bottlenecks. They should also consult with all stakeholders, including end-users, to identify their specific needs and requirements. An organisation may also consider hiring a consultant to help identify their specific needs and requirements.

A successful implementation and adoption of the selected software requires a well-defined implementation plan, training, and change management strategy. It is important to involve end-users in the implementation process to ensure their buy-in and to address any concerns they may have. Ongoing support and communication, regular evaluations and assessments, and continuous improvement initiatives will also help ensure the long-term success of the software implementation.
