Implementing ERP & Accounting Software On Time, On Task And On Budget
When implementing new business software, implementing on time and on budget is not by chance. As with any project plan, a detailed and methodical process must commence to insure success.

It requires a significant investment of time and resources, requires the involvement of virtually the entire organization, as well as a considerable amount of research, planning, and reevaluation along the way.
The best project is well thought out and fully researched. It is not limited to a budget and timeline, but focuses on tasks, owners, goals, and milestones. It begins at the time of software selection and goes well beyond go-live. And although most projects will stumble along the way, successful implementations that actually end on time and on budget are quite possible if managed properly.
