In any software category there are usually dozens of options. With so many features and pricing plans to sort through, how do you choose the right system for your organization?
Over three sessions we will teach you how to evaluate your organization’s needs, assemble a software selection team, sort through your options, review and test the software, and manage a smooth implementation.
If your organization is considering switching software or bringing on a new system in the next six months, you’ll save a lot of time, money, and headaches if you take the time now to think through the process and develop a plan. Let Idealware be there to guide you.
During this course you will:
- Reflect on whether you actually need new software.
- Learn how to evaluate your software needs.
- Consider the potential return on investment (ROI) of new software.
- Find out what it takes to build a selection team.
- Hear how to work with vendors to get the right system at the right price
- Plan for the big move.
- Think through how to onboard staff.
- Review what it takes to maintain the new system.
Before you begin listening to the sales pitches and walking through demos, we’ll first take a step back and ask whether you really need new software and consider how to measure the return on investment. From there we’ll look at the selection process and lay the groundwork for a thoughtful plan.
