Selecting the Right Reporting Software and Vendor
Cetova Corp Develops Checklist from which to Evaluate Candidates
Jersey City, N.J.—September 15, 2012—Cetova, a provider of data management software solutions to ERP users, is pleased to announce the development of a business checklist to help organizations select the right reporting software for their environment. “Requirements gathering in preparation for undertaking a search and select of software products can be a daunting task,” says Carol Knouse, Cetova’s VP of Customer Care, That’s why Carol, based on her extensive corporate experience as a Chief Information Officer, developed a list of techniques which can dramatically shorten the process.
“When the Cetova team first walks into a client site,” says Carol, “there’s an extraordinary amount of energy put forth to address the company’s reporting challenges.” This energy is quickly transformed into a brainstorming session on the pros and cons of the client’s processes. “The obvious source of data is the formal reporting system,” says Carol. “The reality, though, is that there are always workarounds and islands of information – more than the client wants to admit.” Carol found her team spending an inordinate amount of time coaxing the client to share its reporting realities, such as all of the spreadsheets that key business users rely upon. To expedite this part of the kick-off process, Carol and her Cetova team started using a checklist of typical reporting workarounds. With this tool, the clients were quickly reassured that their not-so-efficient processes were fairly common, which facilitated their willingness to share information.
Cetova decided to formalize its proven methodology with a white paper on how it helps organizations develop business and reporting requirements, review vendors effectively, and select the best vendor and software that meets the needs of today and the future.
