This article is about how to succeed with your software implementations. And while it's focused on time, expense and asset tracking software, it applies to any kind of business software.
So let's get in the mindset of implementing software. You're nearing the end of the project. You've been through many steps. You evaluated why you should automate manual paper or Excel-based time and expense tracking system. You did business analysis. Worked hard to develop a consensus on requirements. You searched for solutions. Narrowed vendors down to a shortlist. Held numerous software demo meetings. Found a solution. And made the purchase.
In your bones, you feel it will be a great success that will help your company a lot.
But concerns remain in the back of your mind:
- Did you select the right solution?
- Will your employees embrace it?
- Do you have enough resources to implement it?
- What if it fails?
