Easy and secure implementation of business software

With the implementation of business software such as ERP, CRM, ECM or MES, etc., the user company is usually faced with a major to very major feat. It involves nothing less than replacing a central company infrastructure without unduly affecting day-to-day business. Where the selection phase has been used to lay the ground for a successful implementation, it is now a matter of actually doing it together with the vendor. The end of the project should be hallmarked by a fully operational, stable system.

It is difficult to answer the question of the “most important task” within an implementation project, but the setup and planning of the project has a fundamental influence on its entire course. In this phase, the user company can make sure that they hold the reins and take on the task of project leadership. In view of the fact that companies often do not have the necessary resources and competence, it is advisable to call in external, but above all independent expertise.
