Government Contractors now see Substantial Value in Seeking Independent Support on Deltek Applications
Before you sign a services contract with the software vendor, seek out a competitive proposal from an independent ERP service provider who is not ruled by the software vendor.
Chantilly, VA (Vocus/PRWEB) December 30, 2010
ERP software vendors tend to offer customers the option of using services from its own professional services organization or the services of a “partner” company under that vendor’s control. Although clients can choose to purchase professional services for ERP software directly from the vendor, keep in mind that software vendor’s primary motive ““ is to sell you more software. Many software vendors lack a vested interest in the implementation itself let alone helping you best utilize the software purchase. Iuvo can help you maximize the return from your implementation investment.
Given today’s economic conditions, not all companies have the budget to purchase and implement an ERP software solution especially when implementation costs can be as much as three times the cost of the software itself. Add to this challenge are companies who do business with the Federal government and who are contractually required to keep indirect rates low in order to remain competitive and to win business. Surprisingly, our clients have informed us that some software vendors, including Deltek, have recently raised their consulting billing rates. These software vendors rates rank among the highest in the industry. Iuvo can make a difference in delivering the highest in quality of work while lowering the overall cost in your ERP software implementation.
Iuvo provides a full range of ERP software implementation and support services for a fraction of the cost offered by most software vendors. Iuvo works hard to keep costs close to the bone and helps customers avoid the software vendor’s typically high and sometimes inflated overhead costs. Iuvo can help you analyze your investment BEFORE the software purchase by helping build a business case that defines the necessary factors of the investment itself including implementation costs. Iuvo recommends to our clients that they obtain a minimum of two competing bids before selecting a services vendor. Iuvo also recommends that one of those bids comes from a company who is not affiliated or endorsed by the software vendor so that you can get the most objective opinion as possible when determining the factors of an ERP software implementation. This way, project driven organizations can insure independence, fair competition, and the best price available in the market place for the highest skilled resource.
