Software Readiness Assessment

Software Readiness Assessment

Tired of struggling with too many software programs to run your business smoothly and ultimately using Excel to connect them together? The average company uses 12 or more such programs.

Are we ready for a major enterprise software change?

Multiple programs cause inefficiency, inaccuracy, waste (duplicative entry, etc.), and don’t provide the consolidated data or information which management needs to make good decisions.  While many providers of new software tools promise improvement, they may cause more harm than good if your company isn’t properly prepared for a successful deployment.

Navigate does not sell software. But we help you evaluate an investment in enterprise software with our Enterprise Software Readiness Assessment that allows you to make decisions based on cost, benefit, value, and process impact criteria. 

Processes
We’ll assess the viability of your company’s processes, how well your employees follow them, and report to you our findings – which include a readiness grid that helps you visualize the areas that need improvement before investing in an expensive software tool.

Cost / Benefit / Value
The greatest challenge in making an investment in an enterprise level software system is understanding the hard and soft costs involved as well as quantifying the benefits that result from a successful implementation.  We have a tool to assist in this process that provides management some clear, eye-opening information to help in the investment decision by quantifying time and value.

Preparedness
Simply buying software can make problems worse.  The Enterprise Software Readiness Assessment highlights major areas of the company that need improvement in order for implementation and adoption to go smoothly.  Oftentimes this requires culture change and process changes, but it always demands focus and discipline.

The readiness assessment will help you understand your goals and needs and eliminate many of the headaches that can come with implementation.  It will speed adoption and help you optimize the benefits as well as your capabilities and capacity for change.
