Description
Tips and Pointers for Conducting a System Implementation

Presented by Tom Sonde of SilverRoad Solutions

Implementing new technology does not guarantee efficiency. There’s a lot more to a successful system implementation then simply letting your IT department hire a system implementation firm to install your new software.

Surveys have reported that up to 90% of organizations are dissatisfied with their HR system. While some of the blame should rightfully be directed at the software provider a significant portion of the issues can be traced directly back to an inadequate implementation.

Whether you are implementing a traditional HR system, one of the new cloud based systems or an add-on such as an online recruiting solution there are a host of things you, as the HR practitioner, should address.

This session will identify and discuss the keys to a successful implementation. It is non-technical and is designed to provide the HR practitioner with practical tips for conducting a systems implementation.

What You Will Learn:
1. Why system implementations fail, who is to blame and how to avoid them.
2. What are the key areas to focus on and how to address them.
3. How to marry process with technology and apply best practices.
4. How to take advantage of delivered system functionality

"The webinar was a bit rushed. About 70 minutes worth of information crammed into 60 minutes. So the speaker was very hurried. Add to this that the audio sometimes ""hic-cuped"" or skipped and it made hard to hear all of it." 4 / 5
