Software Evaluation and Selection

Assessing, identifying, and implementing the right software

Software selection is not an easy task, especially with millions of software choices for your business. Which one is the right size? Is it scalable? Will you have to run constant updates? Dean Dorton Technology’s team works closely with you on software evaluation and selection to make sure you are getting the best tailored solution for you business at the most reasonable cost. Often we can help negotiate prices and have access to many software platform discounts that we can pass along to you.

Whether you are looking for ERP software, HR/Payroll, CRM, or any other type of software, Dean Dorton Technology works with you to lead to successful selection for your organization. A critical part of the selection process that most companies overlook is the selection of a qualified implementation partner or Value Added Reseller (VAR). In certain cases you need to do this evaluation during the vendor research, in other cases you will select the implementation partner after you select the software product.

Our software consulting services cover the full range of your critical backoffice software applications. We provide assistance with industry-specific software evaluation and selection, data analysis and reporting, systems integration, as well as implementation and project management. We are proud to be a VAR for many software solutions that we sell, implement, and support including Microsoft Dynamics GP, Intacct, QuickBooks, Abila Mip Fund Accounting, and Sage 50, among many other software solutions.

Dean Dorton Technology’s team has years of experience as a VAR and has implemented software solutions for companies of all sizes in a variety of industries including law firms, physician practices, family-owned businesses, nonprofits, hospitality, retail, and wholesale and more.
