About TEC software comparison reports for the manufacturing industry

Complete functional criteria is included for ERP systems, CRM, SCM, WMS, BI, PLM, and others required by organizations of all sizes. These lists of criteria, which in most cases numbering in the thousands, give you a full view of all the features and functions currently available for the selected type of software. This allows you to easily compare software vendors side-by-side and determine which features and functions are required for your organization. With over 1000 vendor products available for evaluation, TEC is the largest service of its kind in the industry.
TEC helps thousands of manufacturers, every month, evaluate and select software solutions that meet their exacting needs by empowering purchasers with the tools, research, and expertise to make an ideal decision.
Industry standard terminology aids evaluation process
The language used to describe each category and criterion has been vetted by TEC analysts and provides a standard description that is understood and accepted by leading vendors and consultants in each enterprise area. During the RFI or RFP process, users benefit from clear, concise descriptions of critical functions that prospective vendors can respond to without confusion. This leads to better participation by invited vendors and reduces the possibility of errors.
