How does it work?

First, we ask you to define a "successful implementation," then work with you every step of the way to achieve your goal. The building blocks of a successful implementation include:

  • Clear objectives
  • Upper management support
  • Dedicated resources
  • Proper planning and education
  • Vendor methodology project management

Next, we define the project scope, which guides the project team in meeting the agreed-upon goals. Through a series of discussions, we review the scope of the integrated plan, the procedures and the kickoff:

  • Lay the foundation — Transition from sales to services, business analysis, project planning, etc.
  • Plan the details — Plan system operations, plan data conversion and interfaces, detail design, etc.
  • Implementation — Procedures and testing preparation, convert and modify interface, system test, training, etc.
  • Rollout — Parallel processing, live processing
  • Analyze results — System review

The result is a tailored solution that fits the needs of your company.
