The time has come for your organization to replace a key piece of technology. Senior management is on board, and money is available. Your frontline staff is thrilled that their tools will be updated. Now what?

Good technology and services cost good money, and tight budgets require planning and justification for expenditures. This webinar will explore:

  • What are RFPs, and why might you use one?
    • Do you need an RFP?
    • What needs to be in it?
  • How do you make the business case for a new tool?
    • To SaaS or not to SaaS?
  • How do you do a risk assessment? Determine ROI?

Join us as we explore this topic and suggest some solutions to help you get the right tool with just the right amount of effort.
