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.)

30 Years of Rave Reviews

I worked with Nims when at another company ... you don't have to tell me what a fantastic company Nims is.

Thank you for explaning what you did in an understandable way. You're very patient working with such a small company and treating us as though we were a huge corporation.

We are so pleased with the installation of our Shoretel system. The phones work great and James was able to customize the system to suit our somewhat unusual need of combine live person answering and automation. Both the phones and the software are user friendly and required little training. James…

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…

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

I have been extremely happy with your service. Michael is truly devoted to his clients and has been great about working with our current vendor to get our issues resolved. The MXLogic transition was seamless. Our users barely noticed the change, which is always a plus. 

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…

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.

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

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…

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.

At a time when it may seem like good customer service is at all time low and we hear so many negatives about many companies and their employees, it’s a pleasure to be able to send along our positive comments regarding Nims & Associates … and more specifically about Chris. Chris has worked our…

As someone who works remotely from a home office, connectivity and a reliable, functioning computer are absolutely critical to my ability to be able to perform. Recently my computer "crashed" and as you can imagine created great inconvenience. Your team of Joel, Tessa and Tim responded immediately.…

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!

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people. We have trusted you from the get-go because of your high intelligence, your ease at taking in and integrating huge amounts of new knowledge, and your grace and calmness in taking care of…
