Using specifications as a template
When you're looking for the right software, you should always draw up the specifications before you begin your search. You can then use them as a template to precisely define your requirements for a software for planning, controlling, consolidation and business intelligence in the field of accounting.
The software providers you contact can then use your weighted criteria from the specifications to explain to what extent their software meets your needs, going into more detail on specific criteria as required.
Specifications include the following aspects:
- Contact details for the potential customer
- General information and product history of the software provider
- Definition of the requirements for the software
- Detailed information on the requirements for the software
- Potential customer's weighting of the requirements
- Degree to which the software provider fulfils the requirements
- Software provider's remarks on the requirements
