The company’s business processes required extensive manual intervention. As well, its systems were not integrated and had limited functionality. The company was looking to purchase an ERP but before investing, the firm needed external, objective expertise to help choose the right software solution and vendor.
BDC’s digital technology experts first ensured that the company’s digital strategy was aligned with its overall business strategy. They then identified critical priorities, including system functions needed to support key business processes. This led to a thorough evaluation of several ERP systems, including the preparation of an RFP, to help them select the best solution and vendor.
