Companies periodically update their IT systems and software to remain current and streamline supporting IT resources. In most cases, new systems are implemented to increase efficiency and improve workflow both internally and externally. Replacing old systems can prove beneficial, but the transition can be challenging, and unless executed properly, a company may not achieve all, or any, of its overall implementation objectives.
Brian Thomas, Weaver IT advisory services partner, recently spoke with Smart Business about the dilemma:
- Pitfalls that occur with new system implementations
- Potential cost of issues
- Recommended steps to prevent such pitfalls
- Monitoring risks during implementation
