We gain a lot more credibility having an outside expert in our decision-making process.
There’s this deep appreciation for the fact that we reached out to somebody who is an expert. Now there is this level of trust that is deep and wide. Going forward with an implementation gave us an opportunity to quickly build trust across the campus. Something that would have taken years to do on our own.
Hearing from Tambellini market research analysts about what’s happening behind the scenes has proven incredibly valuable.
Tambellini goes beyond market research. They lend CIOs credibility when they can bring that kind of information [market expertise] to the table.
“Working with Tambellini knocked off about a year of learning for us and helped accelerate our entry into the higher education market.”
I have had a really good experience partnering with The Tambellini Group on our assessment of ERP selection and in negotiation of that purchase.
The resources that Tambellini Group provides are very applicable to the projects and applications we’re using and/or evaluating. The information is excellent—both concise and thorough!
Tambellini published a very timely piece on Identity and Access Management, at a point when we were evaluating our options. There have been a number of publications written that play right into what we were doing and are helpful as we build a business case to present to our board, which approves all major technology decisions.
The Top of Mind podcasts are like overhearing a really useful conversation at a higher education tech conference. The points, topics, and speakers are well chosen, and together, they provide a lot of value for the time invested to listen to it.
Tambellini Group helped set Seneca College on the path toward achieving our bold i3 initiative—Seneca’s commitment to establish streamlined processes and improved services across our student, financial, and human resources systems. Tambellini Group worked shoulder to shoulder with our team to help ensure the best business and technology decisions were made while mitigating financial and business risk.
Having access to the in-depth research reports, webinars, and one-on-one time with the expert analysts from Tambellini Group significantly helped inform our evaluation of ERP solutions. Our Peertelligent membership provided access to resources that were instrumental in supporting our strategic proposals and decisions for where we need to invest.
If I could change one thing about working with Tambellini Group, I would have brought them in earlier. If Vicki Tambellini had assisted us prior to releasing our RFP, our results might have been even better. Tambellini was part of our team and together we achieved results that impressed our Chancellor and Board Chair. We could not have achieved the same results in our time-frame without their insight and assistance.
Working with Tambellini Group helped us achieve our goal of balancing significant opportunity with the appropriate level of risk management. Between the avoided costs and lowered fees from our partners, the savings were substantial. Furman’s risk is also lowered and the institution has protections that may not have otherwise been obtained.
Access to Peertelligent is wonderful! The information I’ve requested and received has been very helpful. … I just need to know the facts, the strengths and weaknesses, the sweet spots, and the Achilles’ heels of the various products.
