ERP Selection

Client’s Challenge

Assist with selecting an ERP to improve internal cohesion

Growth at Soles4Souls resulted in an increasing need for cohesion across all departments, countries, and systems within the organization. They asked InfoWorks to provide project leadership and project management support to facilitate an informed selection of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and to ensure a seamless and successful implementation.

Our Solution

Vendor evaluation based on business goals

Our team began by creating and getting approval for an ERP vendor starting list. Extensive research was performed and interviews were conducted with potential ERP vendors. We developed a custom scoring methodology to evaluate the vendors based on Soles4Souls’ business goals. Finalists then demoed their platforms for Soles4Souls stakeholders.

Value Realized

Soles4Souls was able to make a confident and timely ERP vendor selection that meets the specific needs of their organization.

Project Details

Due to company growth, Soles4Souls had an increasing need for cohesion across departments, countries, and systems within their organization. They engaged InfoWorks to provide project leadership and project management support to facilitate the informed selection of a new ERP system and ensure a seamless implementation.

The InfoWorks team began by creating and approving a vendor starting list before moving to performing extensive research and interviews. Potential vendors were rating using a custom scoring methodology developed with the client’s needs in mind. Finalists then presented a demo of their platform, so Soles4Souls could make an informed decision.

To facilitate a seamless migration to the new ERP system, our team mapped out a process for cleaning data across all systems and coordinated a change management process. We provided significant project management support throughout the implementation process.

Soles4Souls was able to quickly select an ERP that fit their business model, the transition to the new system was successful, and their team adapted well to the new process as a result of our work.

Let’s work together on your next business challenge.
