The TEC certification process is the most detailed in the industry and rating software solutions by as many as 4,000 different functional criteria. All certified products bear the TEC Certified seal. The seal indicates that the vendor’s responses to TEC's request for information (RFI) satisfactorily describe the product’s capabilities. With a high failure rate of software implementations (TEC reports that up to 70 percent fail to meet objectives), vendors are responding to the demands of their prospects and clients for more clarity and certainty in their software selection processes.
"The certification report written by TEC for Ability 585 ERP is an excellent decision-making aid and confirms the solution's relevance for meeting the specific needs of companies in the manufacturing industry," said Don West, Ability 585 ERP Director of Customer Support.
