SelectHub – Confidence in Software
https://selecthub.com/

SelectHub is a new service for enterprise software product evaluation, vendor sourcing, and IT procurement. It provides a treamlined solution for company stakeholders to collaborate amongst themselves and interact with vendors across all the key stages of product evaluation: 1) Requirements analysis and preliminary product research; 2) Vendor communications (Messages, RFx); 3) Functional or technical validation (Proof-of-Concept use cases and deliverables management); 4) Financial due diligence; and 5) Contract negotiation. By providing comprehensive functionality within an easy-to-use platform, SelectHub helps companies minimize the communication challenges described above if not eliminating them altogether. In other words, SelectHub enables the adoption of a standardized evaluation process that will increase the value of software investments. SelectHub can best be visualized as a project coordination and management tool. But instead of dealing with task lists and Gantt charts, it delivers a collaborative environment where stakeholders within IT (Engineering, Architecture, and Operations), Procurement, Finance, PMO, and end-user business units can work together to evaluate, select, and purchase the right software products. You can seamlessly define and combine requirements, add products, research solutions, message vendors, issue RFIs, compare and rate vendor responses, and manage Proof-of-Concept use cases, lab logistics, and other deliverables. And in the end, using SelectHub, you will have the best product for your requirements that has the highest chance of being successful in your environment.
