Solution Evaluation Consulting

Even if your business knows exactly what is required from a new software platform, it is often hard to cut through the sales speak to fully gauge suitability. Fortunately Systems Valley are experts in identifying appropriate products to match client needs.

Systems Valley go even further by carrying out test installs and software evaluation of products so that clients are fully informed of potential shortcomings before a purchase is made.

What does the product selection and evaluation process entail?

In order to ensure you get the right product to meet your needs, our consultants carry out a number of activities:

  • Requirements Gathering. We will gather a complete requirements list based on current and future business plans to help extend the lifetime of your investment.
  • Candidate Product Identification. Our consultants then scour the market looking for solutions which may meet those specifications, saving your staff time and allowing them to focus on keeping your business productive.
  • Software Evaluation Testing. Products which are shortlisted will then be installed and tested by Systems Valley, away from your existing systems to maintain data integrity and business continuity. This software evaluation process checks systems compatibility and verifies advertised benefits.
  • Final Recommendations Presentation. Our consultants will then present your key stakeholders with their recommendations and reasoning to allow a fully informed, final decision to be made.


This layer of abstracted testing ensures your business gets a professional, yet impartial recommendation with which to work. You can also rest assured that your own staff will not be drawn into the process too early, allowing them to remain fully productive in the meantime.
