Benefits of Our Financial Edge NXT™ Training & Consulting
Implementation and Training Services
Our unique approach involves assigning a single consultant to your organization who will assist you throughout the implementation process from initial needs assessment to configuration, training and satisfying the unique needs of your organization. Our “single source” approach to implementations provides consistency and stability throughout your transition to new software.
As your needs become more advanced beyond the initial implementation, we offer training focused on advanced topics and how to further leverage features of the software. New users will obtain the training needed to successfully perform their duties. You may wish to plan on periodic training services to protect your software investment and make the best use of the system.
System Review and Evaluating Whether a New Module Makes Sense
Our system review services provide recommendations on how your organization can better leverage the software. Because of our experience and knowledge acquired by working with similar organizations, we can discuss pertinent benefits of adding additional modules; recommend supplemental or advanced training, upgrades, and adjustments to your setup. Your review will contain information on how to take full advantage of your software investment.
Upgrading Your System
We offer implementation packages designed to smoothly upgrade you to the latest product offerings. Our upgrade services provide expertise and training to allow you to take advantage of the latest features and enhancements. You will benefit from having a solid upgrade “PLAN” that addresses each critical step while minimizing workplace disruptions. Our implementation specialist will work closely with you from Planning through Training to make sure you are successful every step of the way.
Redesigning Your Accounting System to Better Meet Your Organization’s Needs
You may benefit from changes to your software setup. A carefully planned setup is the key ingredient for obtaining the desired results from any financial system. We have found that system design is the number one difference between successful and unsuccessful users. Our re-design services focus on your needs and obtaining the most from your accounting system.
