Why do I need a Supply Chain Software Top 50 Features deliverable?

When you are initiating a large-scale Supply Chain Management transformation, an initial set of features and functionality that constitute Supply Chain Management software modules will help a great deal in determining scope. This deliverable will help you accomplish that goal by providing a list of the main categories and underlying features of a best-in-class Supply Chain Management Software Platform.

But, our Top 50 Features may be different?

We understand and acknowledge each company is slightly different, but in the end, the principles, practices, and processes of Supply Chain Management will be similar and converge at the core and at times diverge at the edges. And of course, while this deliverable may not cover all that your firm needs, even a 50-75% relevance will help you not to miss the obvious and significant things.

What is my ROI?

Consider the following four factors:

Time Involved:

The time it will take your project team to build a list of supply chain management software features and functions from scratch

Opportunity Cost:

Imagine if all the team members who are time constrained could do if they had an extra few hours?

Time to Value:

Instead of starting from scratch, a well-conceived initial list of Software features to look for in a Supply Chain Management solution can help accelerate your timelines.

Focus on 20% that matters:

If we stipulate to the 80-20 rule, this deliverable will help you avoid spending 80% time on prominent features and instead flip the percentage of time needed to identify and document differentiators and features unique to your situation.

And regarding cost, it is far less than what it will take to buy lunch and cookies for the project team to brainstorm the feature list.
