Article makes choosing software easier
In its annual technology solutions issue, Building Profits magazine's opening article is titled “ERP Selection and Best Practices”. Authored by Kurt Koenig and Laurence True, the detailed article provides advice to contractors seeking to make the process of choosing construction ERP software less daunting.
"ERP software is rarely selected by one person," said Koenig. "One of the keys to getting multiple people with different roles and perspectives on the same page, is to start by asking Why, What and How."
- Why are we thinking about making a change?
- What are the measurable business improvements we expect from the new software? What do we need to do to realize those business improvements?
- How will our organization update its processes and use the new software?
The full article details the process to select software that fits your business and is supported by a vendor that understands your company.
