Once you have selected a system it will need to be implemented. Purchasing the best system does not ensure you will implement the best solution. Implementations for small applications can range from a few days to a few weeks while implementations for large applications can take several months. Planning for and completing this phase can be a challenging and expensive process.
Implementations are seldom easy and they are further complicated when they span multiple departments or impact more staff. The cost of implementations for medium to large applications is often more than the cost of the software and these costs are driven even higher without good project management. Without a good methodology for managing the implementation, additional hours are likely to be required from the software vendor or the timeline will need to be extended, both of which will cost you more money.
Northlake Partners can help by ensuring your business requirements are being met, the implementation stays on schedule, people on both sides are held accountable, and management has visibility to the project. We have experience managing implementations for many types of software and you can leverage our experience and methodology to save you money. Because we work for you and not the software vendor our focus will be to keep your costs down. Let us focus on managing the implementation process so you can focus on your business.
