  • Software Selection and Appraisal
    Software Selection and Appraisal

Organisations often find the applications they are using may no longer meet their ongoing functional requirements as they grow or pivot. Outdated technology is expensive to maintain and difficult to integrate with newer platforms.

Determining your business requirements for new software is a complex and involved process that requires specialist skills – as well as time from employees that your organisation may not be able to spare. With numerous vendors to choose from and technologies to consider, decisions are more complex than ever. Applications can no longer work in isolation and are now expected to integrate with other systems.

featurist offers an independent service which can be tailored to include all, or a selection of, the following components as needed;

  • Business & Software functionality requirements gathering

Many organisations do not perform regular Software usage monitoring. This can cause them to be paying more for their licences than is needed.
