Encore technicians will conduct a needs analysis of your organization and then design a complete solution, including any additional applications necessary, to attain the defined goals and deliver maximum value and usability.
Implementation and Training
Encore’s implementation methodology enables a seamless transition to the new solution with minimal, if any, system downtime. Issues surrounding accessibility, security, availability/business continuity, customization, scalability, systems and user support, and administration are considered and a strategy defined.
Depending on the effort’s scope and number, user training can be delivered through various modalities (classroom, online, train-the-trainer) as appropriate.
Migration and Integration
Transition to the new Office 365 solution can require the migration of existing databases, content, user accounts, forms and templates, and/or org charts and hierarchies. For custom solutions, integration of third party software, including proprietary Encore applications, must be developed and implemented.
