ArcherGrey's proven vendor selection and business analysis service is based on the central concept of engineering the new business processes to take advantage of the "best practices" already employed by the customer and inherent within the applications under consideration and review.
The basic premise of this approach to software vendor selection is to target as closely as possible a plain "vanilla" implementation that leverages the Best Practices embedded in the application package.
Well executed, this approach can eliminate lengthy and costly process re-engineering during selection, as well as software customization that can increase implementation and maintenance costs. The primary phases that comprise our selection approach are:
In addition, we can undertake implementation planning once the package has been finalized to provide cost estimates and as an input to the business case for the project. Each phase has a complete set of tasks and deliverables defined to ensure all aspects of the selection are addressed for successful completion of the project.
