Concepts is a leading provider of independent ERP Selection services.

ERP Selection is a vital process a company must employ to acquire modern information technology that will drive business process and business performance improvement. too many manufacturing and distribution companies successfully completed their ERP Selection projects under Concepts guidance.

An ERP Selection project is a key component to a successful ERP implementation. Implementation projects that fail to attain expectations can be traced back to poorly executed ERP Selection projects.

Concept Soft Consultants employ a “business process” evaluation methodology to evaluate ERP vendors. Concepts’s ERP Selection services are integrated with both Concepts’s Business Process Improvement services, ERP Implementation services, and Business Intelligence services. The integration of all of these services makes Concepts client teams more efficient and overall “time to benefit” is reduced.
