Time is precious and viewing multiple demonstrations of what at first appears to be similar software is not conducive to an effective project. Doing the groundwork properly now to identify vendors who are most likely to meet your requirements (as laid out in stage 2) will save you much time in the long run.
It is critical that you understand the nuances between enterprise systems to avoid wasted time and delay. There are many packaged ERP solutions available and most are more suited to some industries than others. For example some will incorporate functionality particularly suited to Process industries like pharmaceuticals or food/beverages, with formulations, by-products and co products and others – to engineering, make to order manufacturing which need functionality such as engineering change management, warranty and field service modules. I use my experience and knowledge of the ERP marketplace and products to help identify a few solutions that meet your needs. When confident we have identified appropriate vendors, an Invitation to Tender (ITT) can be issued.
