Identify BOTH Distribution ERP Software Features Availability and Deliverability

Unlike other distribution ERP RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex enterprise resource planning system features, RFP Masters for distrutors are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This RFP Master ™ uses a Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) that identify BOTH feature AVAILABILITY and DELIVERY Method. This Distribution ERP RFP Master function is useful during both the enterprise resource planning software selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.


Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed Distribution

ERP Software Solutions

Unlike other RFPs, an ERP RFP Master for distributors can illustrate potential support problems (and risk) inherent in vendor software proposals. The Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) used in each RFP Master ™ categorizes the inherent risk posed for each criteria, and uses that information to calculate the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX ™ for each vendor RFP response. For example, a feature delivered "out of the box" FULLY SUPPORTED is less risky than one delivered through custom programming, even if the programming is free. This RFP Master function is useful during both the software selection AND the implementation phases of a large enterprise resource planning system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable distribution ERP software functionality and vendor invoicing.
