October 16, 2012: Make The Move From Manual BCM, On Your Terms!

Informational Update For October 16, 2012

Looking to transform BCM productivity?

Discover BCM automation without intimidation. Even if you are evaluating an automated BCM solution for the first time, you can still be in control of the process—as long as you are prepared to assess the options on your own terms!

All software providers will certainly present their solutions in the best light. So in addition to asking "What can this software do for me?", be sure to ask "What is involved?" in achieving that outcome, and "How much will it cost?". Here are several examples of issues that might be important to you:

  • Bottom-line Cost: What's included—a "total solution" or hidden "add-ons"?

  • Configuration: Does this solution include getting "up to speed", or is that "up to me"?

  • Compliance: Does this software address my industry standards/regulations?

  • Reporting: How much reporting flexibility do I have, and at what cost?

Click below to access 14 key points that can help you build a better checklist to guide your BCM software evaluation process. Whatever your ultimate decision, you'll be better informed and better prepared.
