TGI Updates Popular Software Selection Tool Kit With New Software Evaluation Tools for End Users and Consultants
Toledo, Ohio – April 1, 2008 – TGI, a leading ERP software solution provider to small and mid-market manufacturing and distribution organizations, announced today a new release of the company’s free Software Selection Tool Kit.
Since its original release three years ago, the Software Selection Tool Kit has been used by hundreds of companies to drive successful software evaluation projects. The reference guide is free to all manufacturing and distribution companies who are engaged in a technology evaluation project and covers a wide range of enterprise level software packages including ERP, accounting, distribution, manufacturing, and warehouse management systems. Unlike other reference tools on the market today, TGI’s Software Selection Took Kit offers a complete reference guide that is free and available for immediate download via TGI’s website. This unique approach offers the most readily available method for obtaining software selection assistance in an economical and timely manner.
The reference tool focuses on assisting companies who are evaluating new software solutions for their organization from project inception through final software selection. The tool kit helps project managers and their selection teams to identify the best enterprise package for their firm in an organized, analytical manner with substantial quantitative data to support their decisions. Primarily used by the small and mid-market business sector, the tool kit continues to expand its reach and now goes well beyond the SMB market to cover companies from small business to large publicly-traded organizations.
In addition to manufacturers and distributors, TGI also allows independent consultants to access and use the Software Selection Tool Kit. Independent, unbiased consultants who assist their clients in evaluating and selecting enterprise software solutions are welcome to utilize the templates and worksheets within their consulting practices with TGI’s prior approval.
The tool kit’s previous release included tools for developing a project budget, calculating potential return on investment (ROI), identifying and prioritizing functional requirements, preparing a request for proposal (RFP), and performing on-site software demonstrations. The newest release of the tool kit includes substantial enhancements to each of the tools previously included and additional tools for preparing a request for information (RFI) and performing remote software demonstrations, customer reference checks, and customer site visits.
All evaluation documents are available for immediate download twenty-four hours a day from TGI’s website. Manufacturers, distributors, and independent consultants in the United States and Canada may also request a copy of the Software Selection Tool Kit to be sent to them on CD format by completing a short request form, which is also available via TGI’s website at www.tgiltd.com.
