You have finally taken the plunge to change the way you view your manufacturing processes forever.  You’ve been given the go ahead to find your favourite five or less suppliers.

How do you choose?

Building the shortlist of manufacturing software suppliers is one of the more challenging steps in software selection.  It is advisable to evaluate no more than five products in great depth, so you need to ensure that you narrow down the field to five or fewer objectively and correctly.

The challenge is that there are literally hundreds of manufacturing software systems and only a small number that are right for you.  This process can take weeks of work; however the more effort made here will ensure you get the right company and the right software for your business.

There are some straightforward criteria you can use to narrow down your short list.  Start with a long list of products and eliminate systems that do not serve your industry, size of business or high level functional requirements.  Make sure that you are looking at systems that are within your budget.

Now you are ready to contact the suppliers and request that all important demonstration.

Make sure that you give clear precise instructions to the sales people coming to demonstrate their product.  The more the software suppliers know about your needs the better they can communicate and show how their software can help.  You need to highlight which functional capabilities are most important to your organisation, then the software suppliers can spend more time demonstrating those capabilities in their software.

Educating the sales team on your selection process will help them to be more responsive.  If they know what you need when you need it they are in a better position to deliver what you need.
