Develop a practical, yet progressive, technology plan that will help your organization achieve its goals and fulfill its mission.
Your organization made a substantial investment in its current architecture. It’s prudent to check in and see if that investment is still supporting your mission and strategy for the future.
An Assessment will verify and check for these questions?
Is your technology viewed as a blessing or a curse?
Is your technology flexible enough to adapt to the changes after implementation?
Is your staff using it to its full potential?
Are the appropriate business rules in place and being followed?
Should you upgrade? Or, is it time to explore new tools in the market?
For a decade, the principals at SmartThoughts have helped associations answer these questions. Our consultants review and compare your system’s functionality against your organization’s goals, requirements, and business processes. If needed, we will help you to close these gaps through revitalization, modifications, additional training, or – in some cases – the selection of a new foundation for your organization.
After you go through a formal assessment, only then will you be able to know fully which direction to take. And, if it’s warranted we are experts in helping with going through the evaluation of vendors and can help you select the best software for your organization.
