Traditionally, customers employ a time-consuming, complex RFP process that heavily focuses on features, functionality and price. This approach does not provide the confidence in decisions our clients need. KSI uses a modern consulting approach to help evaluate modern HR and Finance technologies. Our approach concentrates on the evaluation criteria essential in making a selection that is best suited to your situation rather than what the vendor wants you to see. Our approach considers these critical elements:
• Functional Capabilities
• User Experience
• Data and Security Architecture
• Value & Effectiveness
• Customer, Functional, Technical Services & Support
• Implementation Approach & Services
• Reporting & Analytics
• Product Roadmap
KSI is among a limited number of advisory firms that fully evaluates these areas to ensure you are making the best decision every time. Our proprietary tools and experience effectively leads you through the decision structure, activities, and outcomes that align with your business objectives. Our experienced System Strategy consultants lead our innovative services, including:
• Building a successful Business Case
• Requirements definition for the elements that most directly correlate to decision making
• Analysis of previous vendor comparison data
• Market analysis
• Functional, technical and service Fit/Gap analysis
Most Technology Business Cases are not approved the first time submitted. Often the business case misses essential elements executives are looking for to authorize millions of dollars of capital spend. Beyond the vendor cost projections, KSI assesses multiple dimensions that help create a financial projection and business case that help with executive approval and alignment. Our approach looks at your technology stack for the related tools to assess the overall impact. We have proprietary tools that help project, analyze, and value that your business will receive from the technology investment.
