Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) Launches New Software Selection Website to Provide Information for Companies Seeking Assistance with their Software Selection Projects



Visitors can learn about best practices for software selection and assessment on TEC’s site.


Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) is pleased to announce that its newly designed software selection website is now live. The new section on TEC’s website details best practices and the methodology used by TEC’s software selection experts and features case studies from companies who have successfully selected the best-fit software for their organization with TEC’s assistance.

Organizations looking to assess their current software systems or acquire a new one can read more about the programs and services TEC offers to assist them in succeeding in their IT objectives. Best practices and methodologies to help reduce the risk, costs, and time associated with selecting or assessing software have been developed by TEC’s software selection experts over the past 20 years.

The demand for assistance with a software selection or assessment project has been steadily increasing in recent years. Every year, billions of dollars are wasted on software solutions that do not effectively support an organization’s needs. Visitors can gather information and make use of the online tools and services on the TEC website, most of which are provided free of charge, and can also talk to a TEC software selection consultant for more specific questions or advice.

Lorne Goloff, vice president of TEC software selection services, says, “So many companies end up with the wrong software that we’ve created a whole range of programs based on lessons learned and best practices to help them avoid that kind of negative outcome. Our new software selection site details this information and hopefully is the starting point for organizations on the path to a successful software selection.”

TEC’s software selection and assessment programs include the following:

1)    Software Capabilities Program— delivers a clear picture of how well an organization’s software is supporting its business, and whether a new system implementation is required.

2)    Standard Evaluation Project—helps organizations define and prioritize their functional and technical requirements and compare potential solutions to see which one best supports their needs.

3)    Custom Evaluation and Selection Project—allows organizations to examine and compare software solutions at a granular level before committing to a software acquisition.

4)    Extended Evaluation and Selection Project—enables organizations to determine how well different software solutions support their requirements, including features and functions, total costs, and support system.

5)     Software Architecture Lifestyle Management—helps organizations blueprint their overall enterprise software system(s) to pinpoint gaps and redundancies and determine resource requirements to be able to take a structured approach to optimizing their overall system.

Home Care Assistance Celebrates Opening of Jefferson County Office with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony


Lakewood, CO (PRWEB) May 14, 2015

Home Care Assistance of Jefferson County, a leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new office in Lakewood, Colorado. To commence the Grand Opening Event, which will be held Tuesday, May 19th from 4pm to 6pm, guests will enjoy samples from Home Care Assistance’s Super Smoothies Cookbook.

“I am excited to share what makes Home Care Assistance unique in the home care industry and I am confident this new location will be a great resource for members of the Jefferson County community,” said Steve Coe, Client Care Manager of Home Care Assistance of Jefferson County. “At the Grand Opening Event I will be discussing some of our major differentiators, including our proprietary approach to aging and care, the Balanced Care MethodTM, our activities-based intervention program designed to delay cognitive decline, the Dementia Therapeutics Method, and our proprietary online HCA University that we use to train caregivers.”

Based on scientific studies of the world’s healthiest seniors, the Balanced Care Method promotes five key behaviors correlated with healthy longevity: healthy diet, physical exercise, active social ties, mental stimulation and a sense of purpose and calm. Caregivers are professionally trained to incorporate the Method into daily care to encourage healthy mind, body and spirit. For example, caregivers have access to healthy meal preparation training through the company’s online Home Care Assistance University.

Home Care Assistance’s Jefferson County Care Coordinator, Cherie Coe, accepts approximately one out of every 25 caregiver applicants. Background checks, reference checks and work authorization are all completed along with a proprietary Caregiver Personality Screening. The screening is used to verify applicants’ suitability for the caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. Cherie approaches each client as if he or she were her own parent and spends time matching the client with the best skilled caregiver for his or her needs and personality.

Home Care Assistance provides hourly and live-in services, allowing seniors to remain safely in their homes. Having an experienced and professional caregiver in the home of the client also provides family members respite and peace of mind. Caregivers utilize a holistic approach to aging, encouraging independence and engaging clients in physical, mental and social activities, in addition to assisting with meal preparation, personal hygiene, bathing, medication reminders, transportation and more.

Home Care Assistance staff is available 24/7 to provide experienced, trustworthy caregivers to help with all home care needs for seniors: transportation, healthy meal preparation, companionship, socialization, activities, personal care, medication reminders and dementia care services.

Home Care Assistance of Jefferson County serves Lakewood, Golden, Applewood, Morrison, Evergreen, Genesee and beyond! Call 303-987-5992 or visit http://www.HomeCareAssistanceJeffersonCo.com to learn more about the company’s superior in-home care services.
