5 Steps to Successful Finance System Implementation
Avoid the common pitfalls of implementation projects and ensure you quickly derive maximum business benefit from your new system with this Whitepaper
Implementation projects can be complicated, fraught with pain and get in the way of day to day operations. This Whitepaper guides you through the process with 5 key steps to ensure you bring the project in on time and deliver the agreed business benefits.
With a high proportion of new system implementations failing to deliver the agreed business benefits ensure your organisation doesn’t fall into the same trap by understanding how to:
- Secure board-level involvement to ensure high-level goals are met.
- Clearly set aims and objectives company-wide and ensure everyone is pulling in the same direction.
- Keep everything in perspective and manage expectations – there is no such thing as a system which will do everything and keep everyone happy.
- Avoid the trap of selecting a Technical Project Manager with a limited understanding of the business benefits.
- Avoid chaos at go-live having underestimated the requirement for end-user training.
