Looking Back at 2012

It is hard to believe that the holidays are upon us and another year is closing. It has been another great year at SoftResources – now in our 18th year in business! We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and especially thank our customers who we have enjoyed working with over the past year.

This year, we have done software assessments and selections for many types of software solutions including ERP, Distribution, Permitting, Government ERP, Wildlife Management, Insurance Claims Processing, Family Services, Utility Billing, HR/Payroll, AR/Collections, CRM, and many other types of software. We have also expanded our implementation oversight services to help our clients navigate the difficult implementation process.

Probably the biggest change we have seen in the software market this year is the significant increase in interest for Cloud ERP solutions. The ERP vendors are focused on developing new solutions for the Cloud – with established vendors offering Cloud options, and a bevy of new startups offering new Cloud ERP solutions. This means that there are many new ERP options available!

However, while there is a lot of interest in the Cloud – remember that every situation is unique and many times an on-premises solution is still best. In fact, we have seen clients implement both Cloud and On-premises solutions this year according to their requirements.

The great thing about our job is that we get to monitor the software industry as it evolves and help our clients make sense of it all to maximize their strategic use of technology. A lot has changed in the business software industry since 1995, but our focus has not. We are looking forward to a fantastic 2013 as we continue to help our customers make smart software decisions.
