Engineer-to-order (ETO) ERP System for Electronics and High-tech Components Manufacturing


A U.S.-based manufacturer of high-tech components was looking for a fully integrated Engineer-to-order (ETO) enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. The new system was intended to replace a patchwork of off-the-shelf and in-house systems—including an unstable accounting system—and consolidate disparate databases and reports.

To find the right solution, the company turned to TEC for a software evaluation and selection project.

Starting with a list of seven qualified solutions, TEC issued requests for information (RFIs) to each of the vendors. Based on the RFI responses, the company was able to compare the seven solutions and develop a shortlist of the four most promising ones for in-depth evaluation.

TEC also helped the company collect market data, and prepare scripts for formal demonstration session—a key component of the final selection process.
