Installation is not Implementation
A common perception is that Cloud ERP is simple and straightforward enough that it does not require the same implementation process required to take an on-premise or hosted ERP solution live. In fact, you may have purchased Sage Intacct, at least in part, because of the promises of a simple, low cost implementation. Just provision (the new install) the cloud environment and go to work – right? In actuality, many companies are discovering that while Sage Intacct has tremendous capabilities, and many advantages over legacy on-premise solutions, they cannot forego a proper implementation process. Installation is simply not the same as a consultative implementation methodology designed to maximize the return on your investment.
Generic implementations deserve a bad name
Sometimes the software publisher, or another vendor, will promise you the quick implementation you’ve heard tales of. And sometimes, for some companies, that’s enough. But for the majority of growing, dynamic and sophisticated companies – a generic implementation is only marginally better than no implementation at all. Sure, you know how to enter a payables invoice and receive cash – but are you actually getting decision-making information from the application? Is the application supporting your growth and delivering the ROI you expected? You didn’t need a world-class cloud ERP like Sage Intacct just to pay the bills.
A successful forecast starts with partnership
A successful cloud ERP implementation requires the same thoughtful consideration, due diligence, planning and consistent follow through that successful on premise ERP implementations require. And honestly, a business partner you can trust is a must. The stakes are too high not to enlist an experienced partner whose ultimate motivation is to see your company succeed.
Silverware has a long history of successful implementations (and re-implementations), and that’s no accident. Successful implementations start, well, at the start – with thorough understanding, careful planning and clear communication. And they continue until your expectations are met – until you call the project a success. Silverware’s livelihood depends on effective implementations and long-term relationships. We thrive on repeat business and referrals – and we’d welcome the opportunity to earn these from you.
