We work differently since the start of the pandemic. With many employees working outside of the office, businesses realize the value of having an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution that can be accessed remotely.
But if you are in the market for a new or
Why choose a virtual ERP implementation?
Should you wait for better conditions before scheduling your ERP upgrade or implementation? Can a virtual implementation really be as successful as an in-person one? Does it make sense practically and financially? Are you worried about the quality of the work or the time involved in going live?
Our Western Computer experts can address your questions and ease your fears.
Let’s start by considering some of the real advantages of a remote vs. on-site implementation:
- More choice of partners. A local partner may not be the best for your particular business and industry needs. Remote implementation frees you to choose a partner who is more experienced and qualified. The whole world is available to you rather than just those partners within traveling distance of your organization.
- Greater savings. With a remote implementation, you’ll save money usually allocated to travel time. Also, there will be no threat of delays due to the weather. Eliminating travel and weather can mean substantial savings in time and money.
- Increased flexibility. With virtual implementation, project teams will meet remotely. That means any agreed upon time and location will suit. Even varying time zones won’t delay the work. You can schedule your implementation so that it doesn’t interrupt your office hours.
- More focus. Western Computer’s project plan will define your remote implementation in a way that makes sense for your team. Shorter, more focused sessions help keep your project team members engaged. Scheduling can be set up to benefit your workers’ already busy schedules.
What will be different?

Our team uses Microsoft Teams to interact personally with your team. Through device cameras, videos, and screen shares, we’ll see what you see, resolve issues, train users, and work together just as if we were physically there with you.
Microsoft SharePoint allows us to create virtual whiteboards, document shares, alerts, and tasks so we can collaborate in real-time. Everyone will be on the same virtual page.
A virtual implementation makes a lot of sense, and not just because of the pandemic. Many companies choose a remote implementation so they can work with a partner who knows their industry and is eminently qualified. And, of course, many opt-in because of the time and cost savings.
The reasons vary, but you can feel confident that Western Computer is equipped to deliver success regardless of location. With
