But what about the white papers and on demand Webcasts I promised you?  Here’s a link to a page of material on ERP and accounting software where you can download a PowerPoint on The Software Selection ABCs, a white paper on Evaluating Financial Management Software, a Webcast on the Roadmap for Purchasing Accounting Software, as well as dozens of podcasts, PowerPoints, Webcasts, and videos on more specialized topics relating to ERP and accounting software.  A one-time simple login gives you access to all of the on demand material.  There is also a great Midmarket ERP Solutions Checklist and an ERP Systems Market Primer.
