Project Management and Planning

The Nims ERP Team approach to services starts with project management and planning. We take a practical approach and base this on the following principles:

  • Keep things simple as possible, but pay close attention to detail
  • Effective communication
  • Get everyone engaged and involved in the process
  • Clearly define scope of work and roles
  • Establish a realistic timeline and budget
  • Evaluate and Re-evaluate at every phase

 

Pre-Planning

An important element in the client/advisor relationship that we take seriously, value and appreciate is trust. We understand that when a business is making an investment in advanced accounting software they are putting their profits in our hands. With that in mind, we know what businesses care most about is in the end result. We always begin the implementation process by determining how much help you are going to need to get the job done. The Nims team and stakeholders establish an executive summary to layout the project:

  • Objectives
  • Target dates
  • Roles
  • Budget
  • Evaluation (Assess milestones and measure aptitude)

Implementation

The implementation phase officially begins with a kick off meeting to review the executive summary, make sure everyone understands their delegated role and address any potential roadblocks that may have been missed during pre-planning. A typical Nims ERP implementation is summarized as follows:

  • Blueprint and set up G/L accounts and data migration
  • Installation and standard system set up
  • Customizations (if applicable)
  • Pilot testing
  • Training (Based on the following factors: complexity of system, experience and aptitude of staff)
  • Go Live
  • Post implementation Support (Misc. loose ends, custom reports, etc.)

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people.

We have been a client of Nims & Associates for over ten years. Chris has implemented and maintained our network for all of those years. As our network and our needs have changed and grown, Chris has provided excellent support to move us forward. Over the years I have come to know several of the…

We are very impressed with josh…he seems very knowledgeable and he communicates well…and he just seems like a nice person also…basically our dream consultant….

Again, we’re really impressed with josh and would not hesitate to recommend Nims to anyone.

We’re getting rave reviews on the new e-newsletter. I just want to let you know how grateful we all are for your help on this project—your great direction, patience and support are invaluable.

We would NEVER have gone this far without you!

Since our bank told us we need to become PCI compliant, we found lots of holes and “open doors” on our servers, hosting, website etc. Chris closed up them and Tim has helped with the all the other annoying daily problems we have had, and they both do it with a smile and a reassuring, calming tone…

Bill has far exceeded my expectations. I am happy to have another Super Technician to rely on for MAS200.

Thank you for assigning Don to handle our myriad of computer tasks throughout the year. His expertise and friendly can do personality are a cherished resource within our firm. Whenever the screen goes blank or freezes up we always think "Have no fear Don soon will be here" which he is and things…

We are impressed with response times and the general aptitude of your support group. This stands in stark contrast to some of the experiences with other IT resources we’ve patronized in the past.

Can I tell you how we feel about Chris? He is the greatest. He goes way beyond the norm. We can't ask for better service and support. Chris has taken the time to teach me additional things to not only help him but us here which cuts the time we need him here to fix something I can do. Not many…

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

We are delighted with the service and we've received a number of comments by clients that they are very impressed with the way Tessa handles the problems and works with them. She REALLY picks up things quickly. We are continuously amazed and pleased that we only have to tell her something once and…

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…

I cannot thank you enough for your help this evening. You have proven that your services are much more valuable than we ever expected - when you guys told me your hourly rate, I thought "no way can we afford that"! lol .... We are small and we do all we can to keep costs down, as I'm sure you…
