Evaluating enterprise asset management software: Whose opinion matters?

What sources do you trust when you’re researching a potential software purchase?

34833_TEC_179x175px_blog_al_101017.pngChances are, you look for third-party validation from analysts, customers, and partners of the software company. CIO magazine cites several factors in choosing the right software vendor, from references and scalability to integration, training, and support. One of the first items on their list is “check the software provider’s credentials and certificates.”

So, while we are always enthusiastic about discussing why Infor EAM offers the best combination of functionality and value of any enterprise asset management solution, we understand that you want to hear it from an impartial source. Now you can.

Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC), a leading provider of independent software research, evaluation tools and selection services, has certified Infor EAM. A TEC analyst reviewed an EAM demo and conducted a benchmarking analysis that covered the main functionality areas of an enterprise asset management solution as well as other features such as user experience, interface, and workflow.

The result? Infor EAM was ranked as “dominant” in four categories: maintenance management, integration, financials, and reliability. TEC defines the dominant zone as “show[ing] where the product supports more functionality than the average solution. Dominant modules are likely to be competitive differentiators for the vendor.”

The report notes that “organizations of all sizes, budgets, levels of asset management maturity, and existing ERP solution landscape that are looking to purchase an EAM/CMMS solution would do well by looking into what the Infor EAM product delivers.”
