The first stage of any consultancy is to analyze your current information and business processes.
The objective of the Pre-Implementation Review consultancy is to gather information about the customer's current systems and procedures, what works and what doesn't. This information is collected by interviewing key staff and by observing work processes.
Knowledgeone Corporationís consultancy team will visit your site to review, analyze, process and provide a strategic solution.
