The right business technology not only makes everyday work easier, but it can also help transform companies. So, when existing systems aren’t supporting your business, it’s important to get to the root of the problem. Is it the technology, your processes, or something else?
Enterprise technology implementations are often large, complex, cross-functional initiatives. They require buy-in, leadership, and collaboration from multiple areas of the business to be successful. IPM’s technology consultants have the expertise to map your business processes then work with you to define your requirements, evaluate the options, and select the right business systems for your company.

Optimize business processes
Whether you need a better technology solution or not, IPM will help you improve operational efficiency and control. After we assess existing business processes, together we will identify gaps and opportunities for improvement, create new processes, and implement the change.
Guide new system selection
With an unbiased vendor-neutral mindset and disciplined approach, we will help you identify the most effective solution—off the shelf or custom—based on your needs. Beyond ERP, CRM, QMS, and other large platforms, IPM can help select commercial software, such as a project portfolio management tool. If there isn’t a system available to meet your needs, we can lead the development of a custom application to help automate workflows, data collection, or reporting.
