Why Engage an Implementation Consultant?

Corecon impacts every aspect of your organization from customer relations and sales, to estimating, procurement and contract administration, through to project management, resource utilization and scheduling and finally to the back office accounting function. There is not an area in your organization that Corecon does not influence.

Corecon makes considerable effort to provide you with resources, ranging from on-line videos and Help documentation to live webinars and classroom training events, designed to teach you the extensive functionality of its solution.

Our Implementation Consulting service allows you to work with a consultant on a one-to-one basis. Together with the consultant you will decide how best to apply Corecon’s vast functionality to your unique business environment. This will result in Best Business Practices that define those Policies and Procedures used to train your staff so that they are working at the highest level of effectiveness and productivity.

Unlike Help Desk Support, Training Videos and Webinars, Corecon consultants learn how you work and then provide guidance that makes the most sense for your business processes. By engaging our services you will draw on experience and knowledge that will ultimately reduce the amount of time and therefore cost to implement, while dramatically raising the likelihood of a successful solution.
