The Packaged Solutions Group offers our clients comprehensive services related to the deployment of high quality software applications. Our service delivery priorities include assuring the best possible match of software solution to business needs, offering our clients a structured, yet simple deployment methodology, and staffing engagements with seasoned expertise in the specific package being deployed.
We maintain formal partnerships with several prominent software vendors (see our Vendor Partnerships page) as well as a staff of consultants well versed in popular software such as PeopleSoft, Pivotal, Navision, and countless others. However, we treat our engagements with a "Service 1st" approach and offer package expertise bundled within the overall goal of business results.
Requirements Analysis: Nord Enterprises offers more experienced consultants capable of grasping your basic business needs and understanding your current business processes. Before you even entertain the thought of new software, make sure the consultants charged with implementation understand your needs and your existing solution.
Business Case & Software Selection: The software selection process is a complex and often political process. Nord Enterprises offers the tools to effectively guide a decision through obstacles ranging from crafty salespeople to conflicting priorities.
Reporting & Data Output Strategy: Systems implementations are about improved information availability. All too often, however, availability is achieved with little planning for delivery. Nord Enterprises can define a data output strategy to deliver the informational benefits to your users either directly via application software or through integration with powerful tools such as Crystal Reports or Powerplay.
Software Design, Customization, Interface Development, and Data Conversion: Our functional consultants strive for the perfect software application fit. However, our technical consultants are there if (or should we say, "when?") a critical requirements gap surfaces. After all, every organization does have its unique characteristics, and even the most complex software application can't anticipate every possible need. Therefore, whether it is simple modifications via PeopleCode, complex interface development, or high level architecture design, we are as adept at making an application fit as we are at finding an application fit.
Testing & Validation: Nord Enterprises' consultants have a track record in QA that includes applications of tremendous size and life or death importance. Whether engaged exclusively to validate someone else's implementation or tasked with a rigorous and well-documented self review of our own work, rest assured that your "go live" will be without surprise.
Training: Our definition of system includes the process and the people. When the implementation entails major changes to job functions and/or exposure to new and complex software, Nord Enterprises will deliver the knowledge transfer to make the whole system -- including people and process -- operate smoothly.
