Overview

The Town of Estes Park, Colorado, initiated an important project to replace its existing ERP system (HTE) with a more modern solution that meets its current and future needs. Avèro was selected to provide ERP analysis services, starting with a thorough assessment of the Town’s current ERP environment. The project involves collaborative efforts with Town stakeholders to identify and document the requirements for a new ERP system, followed by the development of a Request for Proposal (RFP) to find a suitable vendor.

Objectives

The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Conduct a comprehensive assessment of the Town’s current ERP environment to identify areas for improvement.
  • Facilitate interactive discovery sessions to gather input from various stakeholders regarding their needs and expectations for a new ERP system.
  • Develop a detailed needs assessment report summarizing the findings from the discovery sessions.
  • Collaborate with Town stakeholders to develop a comprehensive list of technical, functional, and security requirements for the new ERP system.
  • Assist in the development of an RFP for ERP software that accurately reflects the Town’s specific needs and criteria, ensuring that vendors can propose appropriate solutions.

Approach

Avèro’s approach to delivering this project includes several key phases:

  1. ERP Environment Assessment

The project began with an assessment of the current ERP environment, involving on-site interactive discovery sessions with Town stakeholders to understand how the existing HTE system is used and identify shortcomings.

  1. Needs Assessment Report Development

Following the discovery sessions, Avèro developed a needs assessment report that summarized the key findings and identified areas where the current ERP system fails to meet the Town’s requirements.

  1. Requirement Gathering

Working closely with Town stakeholders, Avèro is facilitating the development of a comprehensive list of requirements for the new ERP system. This list includes technical specifications, functional needs, and security protocols that the new system must adhere to.

  1. RFP Development

Avèro is assisting the Town in developing a Request for Proposal that accurately conveys the identified requirements to potential ERP vendors. The RFP is designed to elicit proposals that closely match the Town’s needs, allowing for an informed selection process.

Current Status and Outlook

The project is currently in the requirements gathering phase, with the development of the RFP underway. Through Avèro’s expertise and collaborative approach, the Town of Estes Park is on track to successfully identify and select a modern ERP system that will enhance its operational efficiency and meet the evolving needs of the community. This process will ensure that the Town is equipped with a robust, secure, and functional ERP solution that supports its strategic goals.
