Lawson Software

Michael B.  Hutchison's Profile

Can anyone give me an idea of how much Lawson Financials would cost? I think they may be out of our price range, but I'm trying to find out.

Also, any recommendations for an oilfield services company that is very equipment intensive?

Hi Michael,

There are some key clarifying questions that you may want to get answered before making the decision.
1. What is your budget or likely maximum investment that your board is likely to entertain?
2. What accounting functions are in scope; are you domestic/global, single/multi- entity, remote users.
3. What kind of business are you in? Lawson has S3 for services and M3 for product based companies?

It's really an issue that starts with defining your needs and using the parameters above to guide you towards a likely range of solutions that you can then qualify and evaluate in more detail. If it helps, take a look at this article: "We need a new system, but how do we choose the right one?" http://www.transforming.com/tsi_news/how_do_we_choose_the_right_system_march_2010.html

Lawson is a good product....in the right situation, just like other software solutions.

Happy to chat further with you if you'd like to do so.

Len, thanks for the commentary. The reason I inquired was to try and establish whether or not Lawson should be included in our list of potential vendors. Our budget is likely to be into 6 figures, although the truth is the budget has not yet been established. We are an oilfield services company, so job cost, billing, payroll and equipment management are very important to us.

Hi Michael
Lawson could quite easily be a candidate vendor. If you'd like to chat about some key factors that may help you assess, feel free to give me a call at 847-778.4881. I guess in about 15 mins you could get some clarity about this.
Hope that helps.
Len
