In an era of digital growth and continuous innovation, many technologies have emerged that provide businesses with powerful tools for management, sales, and operations. Such technology will promote better management capabilities, cohesiveness inside organizations and groups, insightful analytics for decision making, instant access to data, and the ability to provide elevated support for employees and customers alike. NETA Accredited Companies (NACs) face many challenges with their necessity to grow into software and systems that support their unique business and service offerings. There are many diverse systems and numerous offerings in each category of systems. These categories include enterprise resource planning (ERP), business intelligence (BI), customer resource management (CRM), project management systems (PMS), time tracking and resource scheduling, asset tracking and maintenance management, vehicle fleet management systems, data and file management, document management systems (DMS), human resource management (HRM), eCommerce and web presence platforms, and more. Since many choices for each exists, choosing the right platform that complements the business and the existing mechanisms in place may seem difficult. Regardless of choosing what may be most suited for the company, the success of a company’s implementation of these systems will be dependent upon training, integration, and deployment decisions. The seminar outlines how to implement these systems, train personnel, and garner the support from management throughout the organization while identifying possible pitfalls in the process. The generalized cost analysis and how to determine licensing, budgeting, and scaling will also be covered in the information provided. The seminar also expounds upon the importance of creating a robust symbiotic enterprise system that eliminates double-entry requirements and allows the seamless flow of information between different systems. Digitally managing a NAC is essential, as technology became the norm in how to conduct business. This information aims to provide decision-makers the tools they need to make quality decisions in their business plans by utilizing and integrating technology as an integral part of the framework for success.
