You understand there are issues in your business and system processes and are looking for an objective evaluation in order to isolate the real problems and gaps. Our advisory service offers flexible options to help you navigate through the noise and come away with an actionable roadmap for getting to where you want to go.
Our advisory engagements, noted below, vary by time and depth based on your needs and goals. We succeed by utilizing our proven Advisory Framework to take you from chaos/problem to awareness to clarity of action.
We help you evaluate the value of implementing an ICM solution; help you build a business case for how it will transform your business; and provide you with a plan for delivering a solution.
We take your identified business problem, generally focused on ICM specific processes, and within a short period of time, turnaround a solution for resolving your key issues.
We take a deep dive into the current state of your SPM practices – whether they are manual or automated processes – and through an investigative and intensive analysis process, we deliver a strategic and tactical roadmap on which you can take action.
Are you unfamiliar with ICM and curious about what it can do? Are you looking for clarification on or a refresher of ICM concepts? Are you trying to compare ICM with a different solution?
Well, the following short tutorials make it easy for you to understand core functionality of the application and help guide you where you want to go. Each tutorial focuses on a key concept, breaking that concept down so that it’s easy to apply to your needs. They provide you not only with the “What” but also provide you with the “How”… Take a look!
