IMP's Core Elements of Quality Implementation

  • We fully understand the rationale for why the client needs to implement a system. If a client wants to upgrade, we ask why and what they expect from the upgrade so that we can communicate any challenges and risks before embarking on a project.
  •  We explain any challenges and best-of-breed solutions. At IMP, we know from our extensive experiences that all 3rd party vendor platforms have their strengths and weaknesses. We ensure that the client understands what these are, given their requirements, and offer alternative best-in-class solutions that meet their goals. 
  • We assist in ensuring that the implementation project works on an agreed upon schedule and budget. Due to our extensive experience in conducting numerous implementations over the years, we bring expertise in assessing the duration and amount of effort needed to complete a robust implementation so that clients receive a realistic timeline and budget up front.
  • We work with the client team and either lead or be part of the implementation project. Our clients depend on us to provide insight and help lead the project in the right direction. At IMP, we take the same advisory approach, no matter what our role, to ensure that every implementation project is a success.
  • We involve the end users from the beginning, as stakeholders in the success of the implementation. Our historical experience with recovery projects shows that when the end users are not involved in vetting out the implementation, everyone suffers. We work diligently to include key end users as part of the project - from requirements gathering to the user acceptance testing (UAT) test phase.
