Organizations looking to select a new workforce management solution should follow a structured approach to the selection process. Using a leader in the SoftwareReviews Quadrant is a great way to establish a benchmark for comparison. Software selection should always include more than one criterion; include:
- Vendor’s commitment to expanding the software’s functionality and features
- Options for architecture based on the organization’s IT strategy and architecture
- Comparison to other vendors using third-party data such as SoftwareReviews
- Peer comparisons and reviews
- Reference checks
Info-Tech offers a variety of tools to guide organizations small, medium, or large through a software selection. Use SoftwareReviews as a starting point for vendors to consider as part of the selection process.
