Choosing the right software is a journey. Because Third Stage Consulting is 100% technology agnostic, our experts can offer a unique type of consultation that isn’t influenced by kickbacks or biased partnerships with vendors.
Unlike big-box consulting agencies, we don’t sell software. We simply help clients select the best ERP, CRM, HCM, WMS, or emerging technology solutions based on our extensive experience with various technologies matched with the distinct characteristics of each client. We guide organizations across all industries to find the best fit solution for their unique, operational needs.
Our proprietary database allows us to analyze vendors that meet our clients’ business requirements to streamline the selection process. We also provide the following services to make each client’s selection experience as pain-free as possible.

Software Selection Case Study
A brief walkthrough of a software selection journey for one of our recent clients.
Our team assisted a unique company that specializes in engineer-to-order construction design and manages contracted manufacturers to create and produce products for their customers.
Due to the fact that ERP solutions typically hang their verticals in distinct categories such as manufacturing or distribution, this hybrid organization kept running into challenges as they worked to find a software that would fit their distinct needs.
Solution & Method
They hired Third Stage Consulting as their second ERP consultant to help find the right fit. Our consultants facilitated workshops and took the time to break down their requirements to grasp a full, end-to-end picture of their organization.
Our thorough due diligence led us to a clear understanding of this organization's workflows and processes, and we were able to recommend a perfect fit software that has become a turn-key solution across their operation.
