Fixed-Fee, In-House Implementation
We go through a rigorous and detailed evaluation of your needs during the initial sales process. This up-front “homework” helps to ensure BudgetPak is a good fit for you prior to signing contracts – and it also improves and shortens our implementation process.
BudgetPak implementation follows an industry-tested plan and takes 6 to 8 weeks from start to completion. Built-in checkpoints allow you to see your system as it progresses, prompting discussion and fine-tuning. Training is as simple as 1, 2, 3:
- Training for the Finance Administrators covers all areas of BudgetPak in two web-based sessions – enabling you to easily maintain the system
- A preparation meeting for end-user training ensures that your users are trained on just the areas that are important to you, and in the ways that you want them to utilize the solution
- Budget managers easily grasp the application within a 90-minute web-based end-user training
Did you know? BudgetPak is top-ranked in Ease of Integration and Financial Self Sufficiency. A measure of how easy it is for finance teams to administer and manage the software – without the need for IT support or resources.
