Systems Implementation

sysimpAscendware members have participated in implementing custom and commercial business systems from the design stage (as early as requirements gathering) to development, testing, live training, maintenance, and through the final stage of an application’s retirement.

Many older business information systems are being replaced or migrated onto newer and more efficient solutions. Some implementations, such as SAP modules, may take an average of five years to fully complete, while other systems can take as little as a week. Ascendware can offer tremendous insight from our engagements in numerous projects. We can show your team how to overt failures and, most importantly, ensure implementation is delivered on time and within budget.
