Technology Implemetation

We can make your technology implementation a success

You’ve heard the technology implementation horror stories.  Companies embroiled in lawsuits with software vendors.  “Customized” software that, at great expense, fails to replace the functionality of the old system.  The Board of Directors pulling the plug on runaway implementations after millions of dollars have been spent.  Why do so many technology implementations go so badly off-course?

Technology implementations, whether an ERP or a stand-alone solution, are so much more than technology.  Successful implementations require data management, program management, and change management.  They demand upfront visioning and post-go live adoption monitoring and user support.  It is simply not enough to just get the technology working.  After all the money is spent, an implementation’s success depends on the readiness of people to adapt to change and to adopt new processes and technology.

This is where TEKmatch consultants excel.  Independent of specific software providers, TEKmatch focuses on the business-side of implementations.  Visioning, project planning, program management, process re engineering, training, communications, end-user support, adoption monitoring – just some examples of how TEKmatch supports implementations.  We have built our methodology on years of managing successful transitions from pre-implementation uncertainty to post-go-live success.  We understand the commitment it takes to deliver the promised return on investment and our skills and experience help make this commitment possible.

How TEKmatch Can Help:

Visioning and Strategy

Well-defined visions for the company’s processes, organizations, and technology are the foundation for a successful implementation.  They set the course for the project’s goals, priorities, time frame, budget and so much more.  Without a well-defined vision and project strategy, the team cannot start planning for success.  TEKmatch is a clear choice for driving this visioning and strategy.

Business Requirements Analysis

Not all business requirements are created equal.  Clerestory is adept at understanding the strategic business requirements that are vital to the business’ success.  TEKmatch builds requirements based on the vision of the future, not as a repetition of what is currently being done.

Business Case Development

Driven by the visions and strategy, the Business Case helps determine the implementation plan, becomes a key communication theme, and provides a framework for making trade-off decisions as the project progresses through its phases.

Software Selection

TEKmatch independent eye and focus on process is exactly what it takes to make important software selections.  We understand that software should be evaluated based on the future process scenarios that you want to see, rather than what the software provider wants to sell.

ERP Implementation Leadership / Program Management

On all programs we manage, you can trust TEKmatch to set realistic expectations of time, costs and benefits.  We apply rigorous project management skills to achieve milestones, resolve issues, track progress, and engage project team members efficiently and effectively.  Our management and leadership during implementation is geared towards making sure the technology is adopted.

ERP Change Management

Ultimately, Change Management is what delivers lasting change.  Beginning the Change Management activities at the start of a project lays a solid foundation for success.  Communication and Training should not be given too little attention too late in the game.  TEKmatch Change Management experts lend the much-needed support that systems integrator and large national firms often overlook.
