Sample Experience With ERP Vendors

Panorama leads the independent consulting market in brand awareness and in trust by vendors. As a 100-percent independent ERP consultancy, we are contacted daily by ERP vendor firms wanting to share upgrade information and new functionalities or discuss RFIs and RFPs. In fact, vendors often refer us to ERP selection and validation clients as they are comfortable knowing that we offer completely independent and agnostic analyses.

We are particularly well-equipped to handle vendor negotiations not only because we are independent of affiliation with vendors and resellers, but also because of our size and clout in the ERP market. Having faced us at the negotiating table again and again, software vendors are familiar with our process and confident in our capabilities. In addition, our team of seasoned experts, many of whom have worked for many of the best-known ERP vendors, has extensive familiarity with exactly how to guide a vendor negotiation for maximum client benefit. Indeed, Panorama frequently negotiates discounts steep enough to offset the cost of our ERP software selection consulting services.
