Buying a business management software is not all. The system must be installed and deployed to best suit the needs of our business. It is worth to use the services of a company specialized in advanced IT systems implementation – we will not only receive the tool but also experience-based knowledge of how to use it optimally.
Some cost-cutting companies decide to implement the purchased software on their own. However, as we know from our own experience, in the long run this does not mean any savings. By using the services of an implementation company, we gain more than the certainty that the program will be properly installed and configured. First and foremost – we use the unique know-how of IT implementation specialists.
Bad program or unprofessional implementation?
If the system does not meet all our assumptions, we often complain about its functionality. Sometimes, however, it turns out that the program is really great, but its implementation has been unprofessional. The level of service that we use after implementation is also very important.
So before deciding on the choice of a company that will deal with the implementation of the program, and then maintaining it in our company, let’s take a look at some of the features:
years of experience – it is evident that a company that has been deploying software for 10 years will have more experience working with systems than the company founded a year ago;
business size – both the number of deployments and the number of clients served;
scope of implementation – does the company deal only with traditional areas such as commerce, accounting or human resources, or has experience in innovative areas such as online sales or field work);
Number of references – Are customers really satisfied with the services of the company, or want to recommend it to others.
Advantages of cooperation with an implementation company
A company that specializes in professional software implementation will first and foremost perform faster and more efficiently than even the best IT professionals without experience in working with the software. By using such services, we guarantee that the whole will work – it will not happen then that the program we purchased will be damaged and we will waste time repairing.
Learn more about the program
In addition to implementation, the company will also offer us training on the use of the program. Yes, there is the opportunity to learn how to operate the system without the help of specialists – the manufacturer provides manuals and instructions that let you familiarize yourself with the functionality. However, if we choose to do the training done by the professionals, we will be able to learn the program much faster, because they will give us not only theoretical knowledge but, above all, practical skills.
