Enterprise Software Selection
Selecting a new business software package, whether it is ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), SCM (Supply Chain Management) or CRM (Customer Relationship Management), is a critical project. Much is at stake in the final decision process and the implementation once a vendor is selected.

Since 1996, Engleman Associates has delivered the SoftSelect ERP software selection process. This process has significantly evolved over time and now includes effective components for ERP cost control, ERP implementation risks control, and developing an overall ERP strategy. Since 2001, Engleman has offered a summary version of our ERP research in an online ERP comparison database.

Business Process Reengineering
What is business process reengineering? Four key words describe it best:
Fundamental – reengineering begins with no assumptions
Radical – reengineering is about business reinvention, not business improvement
Processes – reengineering focuses on processes, not people, jobs, or tasks
Dramatic – reengineering is not about incremental improvements, its about achieving quantum leaps in performance.
Our business process reengineering professionals understand change is difficult. We bring our expertise to create an environment for change by using a structured, effective approach to reengineering by:
Identifying the process customer driven objectives
Understanding the existing alternatives
Search alternatives and benchmarking
Examining the “fit” of a reengineered process
Reengineering the process
Providing training sessions to help the organization prepare
Implementing the reengineering process.
Through Sisterson’s practical experience and reengineering assessments, typical business processes identified for reengineering may include:
