The value of software is realized in supporting the business strategy

To maximize the value of new software you need to:

  • Identify the software that best fits your specific requirements and supports your business strategy.

  • Adequately prepare your organization for that new software.

Enterprise software or ERP purchases have only 3 goals:

  1. Go live as planned, and with minimal business disruption.

  2. Meet user, management and ROI expectations.

  3. Fully support the organization’s business strategy.

Take the typical enterprise software selection shortcuts and you put your career and organization at risk. But follow the right software selection process and you will meet these goals.

Why do 90% of major software purchases fail to meet expectations?

The average company takes too many shortcuts when selecting software and squanders the opportunity of supporting their business strategy, e.g. raising the bar on their competition. And that is exactly why they remain average.

Don’t squander the opportunity to rise above average. Don’t gamble with your company and your career. Proactively select the enterprise software or ERP that truly supports the business strategy and meets the needs.

Force people to think through their ERP requirements, bring structure to process

Selecting software was a collaborative exercise that forced people to think through their needs. It would have been a challenge without Wayferry's structure, and that was a big win for us.
