Last time, I covered the first three parts of a plan to acquire much needed software for your inventory and accounting needs. First, accurate assessment and listing of those requirements, a demonstration of the potential software that focuses on those needs, and selection of software with more consideration on those who will be using the software than on the IT considerations.
Today I’ll give steps four through six in the process of selecting the software that you need.
4. The Avoidance Altogether of IT Concerns
Often, the business people choose the software based only on their own criteria, leaving the IT gang to get the software up and running. The technology that the software uses is very important to the IT department’s ability to run the company’s system, and that the IT department can continue to observe the security and structural standards already in place. So if your company’s “system” is suddenly forced to make significant changes in order to install and run the software, there’s a problem. SIMMS 2012 uses SQL Server, an established and reliable and secure package in itself, which can adapt to any security demands of any system, thus lessening the work that the IT department needs to make. Less time means that SIMMS 2012 is up-and-running faster using existing conditions.
5. Planning Must Allow for Possible Future Uses, Not Just Current Uses
If you want the software to handle just your inventory management for now, many software packages may suit those needs. But if operations or accounting may some day also wish to implement the software for their departments, can the software handle such segmented implementation? SIMMS 2012 makes the use of its modular systems easy to start whenever you want to use them.
6. Making the Decision to Buy the Software
The choice and use of a software system I very important, and at some point that decision must be made. You must be able to see the benefits now and in the future. Advice from others and their guidance can make the decision easier. SIMMS 2012 and its users at its manufacturers, KCSI, can make it a simple choice. Clients and testimonials can be contacted for their advice and experience with SIMMS 2012. And in the case of SIMMS 2012, it is constantly evolving to incorporate more of its client’s needs. Other software only does this rarely, if at all.
