“At the beginning we wanted to buy an insurance policy for this very important decision we were making. Working with TEC was the best insurance policy for the system selection process.” -- Peter Post, ECOM business owner, manufacturing system program.

ECOM, a large multinational agriculture commodities trading and processing company, faced a challenge familiar to many large and mid-sized organizations—its IT infrastructure was a vast patchwork of disparate systems characterized by issues of redundancy, inconsistency, and lack of integration. With TEC’s help, ECOM was able to standardize and unify all systems and processes by implementing a single, fully integrated ERP system.

ECOM brought TEC on board to assist with its ERP selection project to bring in a much needed range of services and expertise they didn’t have in-house, including a proven track record of successful software selections. TEC helped ECOM streamline and simplify its requirements gathering process, request for information (RFI) process, and software vendor negotiations management including creating customized, detailed demo scripts.

TEC Advisor, a patented decision support system designed to simplify and objectify decision-making, was the foundation from which ECOM was able to generate a short list of three promising software solutions—from hundreds of options—based on functional requirements. ECOM was then able to drill down further to select the single solution that best supported the company’s organizational requirements.

Says ECOM business owner, manufacturing system program, Peter Post, “At the beginning we wanted to buy an insurance policy for this very important decision we were making. Working with TEC was the best insurance policy for the system selection process.”
