The World Has Changed. Has Your
Approach to Software Selection Kept Up?

  • Explosion of SaaS Vendors and Technology Categories

    Impossible to keep up with pace of change and available options

  • Scaling Demand to Deploy Technology

    Growth of rogue and shadow IT

  • Antiquated ERP Software Selection Methods

    Long, painfully inefficient selection processes

  • Sprawling, Incompatible Software Portfolio

    Portfolio overlap, inefficiency, and support and integration costs

Accelerate and Improve Your
Software Selection Process

  • Use our tier-based selection process
  • 18-step framework to select better software, faster
  • Align stakeholders and rapidly reach a better selection outcome
  • Optimize your process to improve the outcome

Fact-Based, Comprehensive,
Unbiased Technology Reviews

  • Use fact-based evaluation and comparison data to differentiate vendors
  • Save time from duplicating existing market research
  • Use a comprehensive data set
  • Don’t rely on gut instinct, "magic," or a simple five-star rating and comment
