4 key steps for successful software selection
Did you know that on average 25-30% of software goes unused?
In this video, ECLEVA’s CEO Patrick Northcott shares 4 key steps to make sure your software selection process is successful.
- Work with your team to identify the problems they need solved. Prioritise these from must haves to the nice to haves. This information is critical to evaluating and comparing one system against another.
- Ensure the software can integrate with existing systems and share data. Poor integration between systems is costly and can introduce errors.
- Pay only for the modules you will use. Often vendors will add in modules you don’t need but land up paying for over time.
- Ensure the vendor or IT partner has a proven track record in implementation, onboarding, training and supporting clients. A great system with poor ongoing support will only lead to frustration.
Remember IT is a long-term investment. Work with an independent IT expert who will guide you through the vendor selection process to ensure all key components are properly assessed.
