Prove It Before You Purchase an ERP System

If you are evaluating a new ERP system, how can you ensure you choose the right solution, which when implemented, truly performs and meets your requirements and automates your processes?

At Synergy, that answer to that question is to engage a Prove-Before-You-Purchase Prototype of the top solution you determine from your evaluation of short-list demos.

How It Works

The Prove-Before-You-Purchase Prototype starts with a Needs Assessment to develop your precise system and a configuration and implementation plan. Then we use your real data (chart of accounts, general ledger, customers, vendors, projects, etc.) to configure your solution utilizing all the software modules that are appropriate. This would include an abbreviated Chart of Accounts and all the critical transactions you need.

A project-based company, for example, might have transactions for Project Accounting, Project Management, Accounting for Labor, Order Management, Purchasing, Project Reporting, and Financial Reporting.

Then, in this configured working solution—not a theoretical demonstration—we present it to you onsite to prove it meets your critical requirements before you order the software. It’s the best insurance you can buy.

No Extra Cost in the Long Run

Moreover, the resultant Prototype, although a paid engagement, will be developed in such a way that it can be used as the actual implementation starting point for your system implementation. So, when things move forward, there is no extra cost to you.

Clients Value the Prototype Approach

One of our clients described comparing systems and engaging Synergy for a Prototype this way:

“Synergy helped us thoroughly compare systems,” said Michele Gargaro, Controller at TDA Research. “Through deep-dive demonstrations and the prove-before-you-buy Prototype, they showed that Dynamics SL was the right choice for us to meet our specific business requirements, from government compliance to internal reporting.”

The Prove-Before-You-Purchase Prototype provides you with the opportunity to evaluate all the functionality of the solution and experience the system prior to the purchase of the software and committing to the full implementation.
