Doug: If a selection is being done and you want to get the right fit, do a Kemper-Troegoe Analysis (If I remember the names correctly). You first list out all of the system requirements such as, web enabled, strong MRP, strong financials, etc. You then rank them from 1 to 10 as far as importance. You can have fifty requirements and some are 10,s, some 5's, some 1's. Then you eveluate the selected packages against the requirements evaluating them from 1 to 3 where 1 is low, and 3 is great. Use zero when the feature does not exist. Multiply the evaluations against all of the ranked features and add up the final score for each package. Thie gives a non-emotional evaluation and the highest score is the best overall fit. Used this at DuPont, ZEROX, and a couple of other companies and it worked out well. The subsequent implementations were great also. Good luck. I am a contractor with over 20 years of experience and have worked with many ERP packages. Just remember to keep the estimates real and always, always tell the truth about how things are going with the project.
