Why You Should Never Cut Corners on Business System Implementation
Setting up a new timekeeping system can be a difficult and complicated process, especially if you aren’t receiving the support of qualified implementation experts. Without proper implementation, even the most effective hardware and software can become impractical to use and impossible to manage. While cutting corners during the implementation process might appear to save your business time and money, in the long run, quick and cheap integration could cost your business multiple weeks and thousands of dollars to fix.
For the best results and return on investment from your timekeeping system, you should always invest in a thorough implementation process conducted by experts in the industry. Journyx offers unmatched full-service solutions including hardware selection, software, integration, implementation, and support.
What Should a Professional System Implementation Look Like?
No matter what you need for your workforce management and timekeeping systems, Journyx can customize solutions to meet your specific needs, provide unmatched professional service, and guide you through a thorough implementation process.
There are five essential steps in a complete timekeeping implementation process:
- Kick-Off Meeting
- Discovery and Solution Finding
- Administrative Training
- Pilot Rollout
- Live System Rollout
When companies cut corners on implementation, important steps like these are skipped or not given the attention that they deserve, leading to gaps in understanding and failures in the crucial business processes associated with your timekeeping system.
Meeting the Needs of Your Business with Precision
Early on in a professional implementation, the needs for your workforce timekeeping system should be discussed in detail to ensure that each selection for hardware, software, and configuration is perfectly adapted to your workplace.
Without these careful considerations at the beginning of the implementation process, another service provider could use these shortcuts against you, pushing your business towards investing in expensive and unnecessary equipment that does more than your business will need, or tricking you into purchasing poorly-suited equipment that will require costly upgrades over time to keep up with your workforce.
Having a clear and open dialogue with a trusted and experienced service provider ensures you avoid these pitfalls. You will have everything your system needs to succeed.
Training your Administrators and Employees the Right Way
If you skimp on important steps such as training during the implementation process, your system’s administrators may be unprepared to fully utilize the features of your time and attendance software.
As training can be one of the most demanding aspects of implementation from a workforce perspective, it’s essential that it is done right. What’s the purpose in obtaining powerful and feature-rich time and attendance software if your internal system administrators don’t know how to use it.
Some companies will glaze over training, leaving your employees unprepared, or charge excessive fees for basic training that should have been a part of implementation. But Journyx knows that the best way for a business to realize the value of our hardware and software is to fully utilize all of its features.
By choosing a timekeeping system provider that offers proven methods for administrative training paired with a top-level support team, you can rest assured your employees will find it easy to use the system and your data will be more accurate and powerful in driving positive business decisions.
Understanding the Benefits of Full-Service System Implementation
The difference is easy to see when comparing the risks and pitfalls of a quick, cheap software set-up and a full-service implementation.
With a full-service implementation, your time tracking system provider is working from step one to deliver the best solutions for your company. From listening to and detailing each of your workforce management needs, to finding the perfect combination of hardware and software at an unmatched price, we’re committed to surpassing your expectations.
Without the care and precision that goes into steps like administrative training, software pilot phasing, or full system rollouts, a lazy implementation could lead to all kinds of problems down the road. Over the years, we’ve heard horror stories from companies coming to us after disastrous experiences with other time and attendance providers that failed to meet their needs. A common theme for many of these failed partnerships was a lack of direction and communication from the start of the implementation process.
Save yourself the headache and expense of having to fix your implementation by getting it right the first time with Journyx.
