10 Things to Consider About Your
Procurement Software
Buying PROCUREMENT SOFTWARE can be a tricky exercise. The investments
that go into hardware and software, either associated with each other or for
other independent activities is hefty a nd it is imperative for any business to
try and keep costs low while not compro mising on the quality of the
procurement software. There are many things to consider while purchasing
any hardware or software. Here are the top 10 things to consider before
buying procurement software.
What Is The Price For?
PROCUREMENT SOFTWARE price can be either for a number of seats or for a
set of users at any point of time. You may opt for 20 user s and use the
procurement software o n all 20 users at any point in tim e. Alternatively, you
may not have suc h a requisite and have the procurement software installed
for 20 users but use it on o nly 5 users at one time. Choose as it suits you r
business.
Does The Price Include Onsite Services?
Remote service and solutions have b ecome the trend today but th ere could be
several reasons w hy you may need onsite services. You get what you pay for
so consider the importance of onsite services and if it is worth paying extra.
Is There A Satisfaction Guarantee?
Seeking refund for any procurement software that you are not happy with can
be an arduous task. Check out the return policy and refund policy before
buying it.
Turnaround Time to Fix Bugs
It is unrealistic to expect the software to not have any problems. There will be
errors and bugs. What’s important is th e time a company would take to get
their bugs fixed. Ask this question while buying and it is one of the most
important things to consider.
Program Updates
You would not wish to miss out on pro gram updates hence check out if the
procurement software sends you notifications, if there are automated updates
or you would have to do it manually or request for it.
Scalability
As your business grows your procurement software might have to be
redesigned or scaled up. It should be doable.
Customizability
You may not need a few features of the procurement software and may nee d
some customized features. The company should be capable of delivering on
such aspects.
Installation & Operational Hurdles
Every procurement software application would have a set of challenges and
you should be briefed on the possible hurdles at various st ages. A software
company that is aware of the problems and know the solutions would b e your
ideal choice.
Customer Support
The procurement software company must have a customer support policy and
you should settle for nothing but the seamless and the best.
Future Prospects
PROCUREMENT SOFTWARE that is set to bring in positive de velopments and
new features in the future is better than ones that do not have any such
propositions.
