ERP & Technology Selection

Logan Consulting can help your company with software and technology assessment and selection services to match your business needs with the technology tools that they require. Our well defined methodology covers the entire process required to ensure that the systems selected will be implemented successfully and will meet the business goals as defined by client management. Our methodology helps keep the focus on your business goals versus being diverted to technology features and functions. The approach can be tailored to leverage capabilities that you have on staff, speeding up the process and containing the costs.

Our approach includes steps such as executive management consensus building as to business needs, detailed definition of requirements, preparation of appropriate vendor letters and quote request documents, analysis of potential vendors, demonstration scripts, managed vendor demonstration exercises, and final selection. Critically, we act as facilitators to our clients; allowing their buying teams to internalize the final selection as their own. At the end of the process we then guide you through the negotiation process to help ensure not only the best price but also favorable contract terms and conditions.

Benefits

Clients ensure that their selected solutions address their business needs; receive the best terms and conditions from their software vendors; align with the right vendors; and avoid software purchasing mistakes. Our consultants bring experience from industry and from both the software and hardware markets. As your advisors they bring you the background of having sat at both sides of the table, both as a buyer and as a seller. Utilizing Logan Consulting ensures that you as the client and not the vendor have the upper hand in the buying and selection process. That in turn leads to what you really want, a successful and timely deployment of the tools that you purchased.
