So—whether we’re talking about fitness, diets or  even lifestyle changes related to how you work—the experts recommend taking small steps each day to drive improvement.

ERP Implementation for the City of Boise – As Good as it Gets

We all know that an ERP selection and implementation project is a about as large as a project can get. Costly, time-consuming, stressful, and burdensome are just a few of the adjectives often associated with this undertaking. On the other hand, a successful ERP implementation can be rewarding in many ways. It can bring organizational efficiencies, more accurate information, better decision-making, reduced operating...
