Once a manufacturer or distributor has completed its initial evaluation of ERP software companies through the RFI and Introductory Demonstrations process, it is in a position to select a “short list” of potential ERP software suppliers. Once this short list has been defined, the manufacturer or distributor develops a more detailed list of business software requirements for the ERP software selection project. This detailed list of requirements forms the core of a formal request for proposal (RFP) document to be distributed to remaining ERP software suppliers for their review and written response. The vendors’ RFP responses become the basis for evaluating and selecting ERP software vendors to perform onsite scripted software demonstrations in the next phase of the software selection process.
For more detailed information about the Requirements and Request for Proposal phase of the ERP software selection process, please review TGI’s online Requirements and Request for Proposal resources.
