The Ultimate Tool for Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is not just finding new technology, it's about finding the right technology, in collaboration with the organization.

The traditional waterfall process of determining requirements, and comparing them to solution options available is difficult, but necessary to make recommendations that will transform the business. Shortcutting this process and going straight to the solutions, results in low user adoption.

Many consultants and IT departments are cobbling together different tools to try and transform their own process, and make it more efficient. Sometimes, you just don't have the internal ability, funds, or time to manage a thorough evaluation process. Olive allows you to be more efficient with your resources. Save months of evaluation time, avoid endless meetings, emails, spreadsheets and chasing stakeholders to participate. Get to a shortlist faster, with Olive.
