There are many factors that contribute to a successful EPM implementation, all of which need to be adequately addressed throughout the process to ensure success and avoid assumptions and pitfalls. After numerous implementations and years of experience, VantagePoint has developed an implementation methodology to manage project flow. Each step has specific checkpoints, documents and deliverables. This process starts, progresses, and ends with communication.
And while a strong methodology is critical, it is only a tool. Our goal is to partner with our clients through broad knowledge sharing and relationship building. We believe that it is essential for them to become self-sufficient in the product for long-term success, and to grow the application as needed.
