Suite of Business Software Guides

Many organisations will make a significant investment when purchasing new business software but may not fully understand what is actually right for their business.

Our suite of best practice Guides is to help businesses make the right purchasing decision by providing a straight forward and structured approach to the software selection process – with guides ranging from the most simple to the most complex business needs and sizes.

BASDA members have a wealth of knowledge and years of experience in developing and providing business software.  The list of current BASDA members and their solutions can be found here.

Selecting Business Software Guide

This Guide offers straight forward advice and best practices ensuring the most efficient purchasing processes and methods are used across a diverse range of systems from Apps through Cloud-based and On-premise solutions. Its content will be relevant for purchasers of all sizes from start-ups, through SMEs to major corporates and large public sector organisations ensuring that the investment is made on the basis that the business needs are being fully understood and the right due diligence is being carried out.

Selecting Business Software for Small Business Success

A start-up or more established small business will have considerable demands on their scarce resources as they grow.  The Guide offers independent “no jargon” guidance on how to select the business application(s) which will meet and support the growth plans and ability to meet statutory requirements of the business without draining internal resources.
