Choosing the right solution for your business can be a daunting task given the number of software vendors on the market today.

1 Requirements definition

The needs of your business are defined. This forms the basis of your search criteria for the right software provider.

2 Choose potential suppliers

Most businesses now refer to recognised industry authorities such as Gartner or Forrester to narrow down their list.

3 Request for Information (RFI)

You may decide to issue an RFI. In addition to your business requirements, an RFI also confirms a provider's experience, references and reputation.

4 Product Demonstration

You make each RFI response and choose your shortlist. Shortlisted suppliers are invited to demonstrate thier solutions.

5 Proof of Concept (POC)

A Proof of Concept (POC) is conducted on site on site without any prior work and focuses on a specific area of the solution that will help you make the right decision.

6 Scoping Workshop

A detailed scoping session with key project team & stakeholders. A high-level project plan including resources, timelines & deliverables. Implementation costs are confirmed.

Presenting a Business Case & Choosing your Software

After your scoping workshop, you may wish to gather all your considerations into a formal RFP.  This may include; pricing, project plan, implementation approach, IT security, references and further due diligence information as required. The business case you present to the stakeholders normally asks for a recommendation and one or two alternatives. Now it’s time to make your final decision.

Proof of Concept (POC)

Whilst all the stages are necessary for choosing a solution, the “make or break” stage is usually the POC. We pride ourselves on our excellent product & domain knowledge, providing clients with a highly personalised experience to match your business requirements. Typical POCs take 1-2 days (no charge) and produce a working prototype model for your assessment. We also offer Extended POCs (EPOCs) for clients that have a more challenging set of requirements and broader scope.
