ERP is a journey and sometimes it takes us to places we don’t think we want to go. To get the right functionality, the best way is by finding someone who has done it before. Third-parties coming in to help are great because, while they are not necessarily the smartest guys in the room, they’ve done this before. They use different business verticals and different business practices in order to make your organization better.
One of the most common questions I get from government is, “we are a little bit different than the commercial industry. We’re held to different rules, standards and protocalls.” And to that I say “absolutely you are, but I tell you that even though government is not a “business,” sometimes business rules do apply.”
One of the things we like to do is bring in our experience to make sure you get the right functionality out of your system. We also challenge you to make you think that even though it’s not something that you’re asking for now, is it something you ought to think about? One of the biggest boons to government is the use of mobile applications and mobile devices. While that is not a function that they would not have considered five years ago, but now you have to think about your clientele and your constituents all wanting to have mobile applications. It may be time to drag your government organization from the industrial age to the information age and we will help you get the right mobile functionality.
We make sure that you’re thinking of the things that you would not normally think of and even though we are not the smartest guys in the room, we have a lot of experience. We have a lot of folks that have been in different business verticals throughout healthcare, manufacturing and government. I said it before and I will say it again, ERP implementations are like an ecosystem. They have a lot of disparate, but very interconnected and interlocking parts. We want to make sure you get all the parts to get your system working right.
