Technology Selection Facilitation and Advisement
Need help navigating the vendor / technology selection process? ArborSys is your unbiased advisor!
Selecting a vendor technology solution is seldom easy. Even requesting vendors to respond to specific questions in a RFI rarely provides clarity. The larger issue is the questions you are not asking. Being unfamiliar with a vendor’s tool makes it extremely difficult to ask the right questions. Also, without knowing the “gotchas” that arise during installation and implementation, it is hard to develop an understanding of how the vendor responds to those situations.
Another issue that may be even more important is the vendor’s in-depth working knowledge of your industry and business needs. Do they understand the underlying compliance and regulatory requirements you face? Are they knowledgeable about your processes and workflows? Even if the vendor has deployed their solution within your industry, they may not have a working knowledge of your specific business needs.
ArborSys can help you bridge these gaps. Our in-depth industry knowledge provides us with an understanding of your business operations. ArborSys business and technology experts enter your engagement with industry and domain knowledge to work with your staff and anticipate your specific needs.
