Fire and police organizations commonly employ more than just financial software to automate their processes. The most common applications we have assisted with include RMS, Patient Care Records, Incident Reporting, Crew Scheduling, Supply Chain Logistics, Fleet Management, Computer-Aided Dispatch, Human Capital Management, and Life Safety.
We have helped numerous organizations with requirements gathering, RFP creation, software selection, government purchasing process, board presentations, and implementation project management — ensuring municipality money is spent wisely.
There is no other software advisory firm in the country with the fire-specific RMS experience we have.
ERP Advisors Group will help your public safety organization define requirements, set your software strategy, provide a roadmap, conduct a diligent vendor selection process and manage the entire implementation.
We will define your needs and wants as well as how you would ideally use new automated solutions across your public safety organization, such as fire, police, emergency medical, and search and rescue.
After finalizing your public safety RMS software and services contracts, EAG stays with you to oversee your implementation until you successfully go live. We will oversee integrations, data migration, change management, budgets, design and configuration, walkthroughs, training, testing, go-live cutover and will provide executive and project sponsor support throughout the duration of your project.
We assist with all components of data migration: extraction, cleansing, transformation and loading into your new system to ensure you have complete confidence in the accuracy of your data at go live.
Surveys across all of our Public Safety clients reveal the most common reasons why they need new RMS to automate their business:

We are 100% independent ERP consultants, and we never take commissions or payments from any vendors. Combining our objectivity with our white-glove selection process, you will be absolutely certain that you are selecting the right software and implementation resources.
"ERP Advisors Group came in and looked at what we were using at that time and did an analysis of what we needed in the future. From there they interviewed companies with the type of system we needed. EAG brought those companies in to do a demo and then we took the recommendation from EAG, along with our recommendation, and moved forward with our decision."
Our public safety clients are already very busy saving lives, ensuring the safety of our community, preventing natural disasters and do not have time to become ERP experts. Though your key people still have to devote some time to an ERP initiative, hiring an ERP consultant frees them up to make the important ERP decisions while staying focused on their day job.
The more complex your organization, the more likely for difficulty when selecting and implementing software. ERP Advisors Group will help you uncover your true needs and will only vet the most viable options for your size, requirements, resources and strategy.
We will create your requirements document and demonstration script with the public safety industry best practices in mind while retaining what is unique to your organization, leaving out the manual workarounds.
Many clients hire us to help when they suspect they need a business case for new software. ERP Advisors Group helps appointed officials buy into what is best for the organization by getting their input at multiple stages throughout the Needs Analysis, Selection and Implementation.
A frequent complaint we hear from prospects who tried to select software on their own is feeling confused about the software's capabilities. We get vendors to show your requirements during their product demonstrations. This ensures you feel confident about selecting the best products that can meet your needs.
We negotiate tens millions of dollars of deals every year for our clients. We provide contracts review on all terms and conditions, including software and services and every agreement embedded throughout the contract. Our clients receive price protection for many years to come on their purchase. While we don't guarantee it in writing, we normally save our fees on this step alone.
ERP Advisors Group's Needs Analysis will uncover the benefits your company would realize with an ERP upgrade. Some of the most common benefits your Public Safety business will realize include:
Now that I’ve worked with EAG personally over the past five to six years, they’ve almost become an extension of our staff. During this process, if I ever had a question for any of the EAG team members, it would feel like they were in our office because they fit in like a part of our team. And that I think is such a value that EAG brings.
