Afternoon Education Session:

Finding the Right Software for Your Business

Technology is a critical part of business in every industry, but it can be daunting and challenging to keep on top of all the great software tools on the market. 

The goal of this presentation is to help you and your business be informed about each stage of software selection and help you determine the right software choices for your unique company needs.  We will have wade through the murky waters of this process by walking you through the key stages of software selection, including:

  • Initial evaluation of your software needs

  • Sifting through vendors, software options and demos

  • Considerations for an implementation plan, including timeline, budget and skill requirements

  • Working on the details of the contract and negotiating with vendor and consultants 

This presentation is ideal for all small-to-medium-sized companies that know they need to streamline their software solutions and operations but aren’t sure where or how to start.
