Historically, firms have only had two options for working through a very
difficult, complex, risky, and comprehensive new software selection investment decision.
Option One: Do it themselves. Assign a project team who doesn't typically have a refined framework, strategy, or methodology to quickly guide the organization through this 'mission critical' investment decision process. A team who may not understand the countless business requirements or system capabilities available in the marketplace.
Option Two: Pay an expensive consulting firm who uses an outdated excel based RFP and requires each Client to define 500+ questions to ask vendors. Most of which vendors routinely answer yes, rendering the RFP useless. An exhaustive, outdated, and expensive consulting fee that is rinsed and repeated with each Client.
At BlackFin, your consultants aren't the typical career consulting advisors who haven't ever actually done the work of selecting and then implementing a new system. Each team member has operated in the role of either building new financial services technologies, led system selections and implementations as project managers, ran QA testing, built and delivered training, and served as system administrators.
Our Tech Stack Navigator service will focus on what matters most to you and your team. We know the right questions to ask. Our experience ensures you are getting the best recommendations that will deliver project success.
Considering a new technology project? BlackFin helps ensure lenders are making the best technology investment. When considering over 70% of all technology projects fail - you can't afford to make the wrong choice.
