IWMS Consulting highly recommends to get experts on board during the Tendering and Selection Process.
Don't shake that hand just yet.
Often Senior Managers are unfairly expected to become Subject Matter Experts overnight for identifying, purchasing, and implementing IT solutions with very little previous software procurement experience. This results in a lot of stress and pressure on the individuals as well as scoping errors, contractual misunderstandings, disappointments, and extra costs.
Some systems are very niche and expensive to implement so having independent experts on board earlier in the process will save money quite quickly.
IWMS Consulting has the expertise needed to ensure the tendering documents are water-tight with a clear definition of both requirements and deliverables, which is the foundation of a healthy business relationship with your software vendor.
