Software Selection: Accounting and Financial Management Software, ERP, Inventory, Manufacturing and CRM

Having the right software is important to your business. But software selection is a complex process. We find that it sometimes takes a year to fully absorb new software once the implementation begins. The first six months is spent learning how to do in your new software the things you knew how to do in your old software. The second six months you begin to reap the rewards of new features.

At DGG, you can expect a solution that looks to the needs you have now and your future needs. We have developed a process that documents your needs, informs you of the options available, and analyzes your best course of action. We take into account both hard (features, technology, capabilities) and soft factors (people, training, size of organization, fit of the software for your business). When you get a recommendation from DGG, you can be assured that a full range of possibilities has been explored and the solution recommended will meet your needs.

Evaluation and Consultation on ERP and Accounting Systems

Many ERP technology firms support and research only one brand of accounting software. A study of software selection projects in large consulting firms discovered that the software product recommended in over 80% of the cases was the product the lead consultant knew best.

At Data Guidance Group, we know that selecting the right software is more than half the battle. So we begin solution agnostic. We believe that it's our job to know many different software packages and to determine which packages fit best.

Our projects begin with a study and analysis of your needs. For more information on the details of each step, contact us.

Finally, you may realize that you need help selecting a software package for your business. In these cases, we offer selection services. If we provide this service to your company, we will not also make a proposal. We would consider that a conflict of interest--and we're sure you do as well.
