Step 3 – Creating your shopping list
It’s now time to drill down into detail on your requirements and start exploring potential suppliers. Knowing what features and functionality you’re looking for will help you filter out products and suppliers more effectively – and get to a good shortlist more quickly. It also helps to gather your thoughts before you speak to salespeople.
After completing this action plan, you should have clearly defined your requirements and have potentially narrowed down a solution(s) and/or supplier(s).
The first step of creating your shopping list is to use our features checklist – a series of questions that can help you identify exactly the right software for you. You’ll see that these questions are not all about technology - they’re designed to help you understand your business requirements, so you know exactly how your software will fit in.
