System Assessment
Align your company’s ERP and technology strategy with your overall business to enable strategic outcomes and create business value. A system assessment is a great way to help ensure you are getting the most out of your ERP and business systems. The technology landscape is evolving every day; an assessment will help check if your business systems are still the best solutions for your organization.

Software Selection
Our truly independent (no vendor relationships/partnerships) selection process and hundreds of successful ERP and enterprise software selections make us a valued partner. RubinBrown helps clients see past the bells and whistles of the sales pitch from vendors and dig deep into functional requirements to ensure the right system is selected. Our seasoned professionals work with our clients to go through a structured evaluation process to find the best solutions to fit their specific business needs.

Software Implementation
Software Implementation is not simply installing new software. Implementations are a business opportunity to ensure your system is set up for growth and with the future in mind. It is also a crucial time to optimize your business processes in conjunction with your selected system. We have successfully managed hundreds of enterprise software implementations via our Active Project Management process. Our team helps keep your implementation project in-scope, on-budget, on-time, and ultimately ensure that it is a success.

 

More Than Just Picking Your System

We manage your project as a “Business Transformation” project, not just an IT project. We help you get the business results expected from a new system.

Negotiating contracts, especially large enterprise software contracts potentially with recurring charges, is a must. RubinBrown has helped our clients save millions of dollars in contract negotiations. Negotiating terms and conditions is just as important as hard dollar savings. RubinBrown keeps our client’s best interests in mind throughout the negotiation process.

The Project Management Institute states that 90% of project management is communication. RubinBrown will enable you to properly set up your project, identify sponsors, define key resources, create schedules and milestones, and carefully manage risks and critical efforts for your project. We are business managers, and exceptional communications are the secret to our success. We will help you build a winning team, helping you align the right resources in the right places, to elicit high performance. We will provide the constant and necessary guidance, communication, and confidence until your project is a success.

 

ERP-Icon-Project-Recovery.pngProject Recovery and Rescue
Projects always start off with good intentions. Good intentions include defined timelines, budgets, and business objectives. Once a project is in trouble, alarms tend to go off and the project is given the unfortunate label as “troubled.” You can save the project by calling the professionals at RubinBrown to help you right the project, recover your objectives, and get the team across the finish line. We will turn your troubled project into a winner with our active project management, confidence, and expertise.
