a couple of things missing. However, commercial
AV and security integrators should
select the tool - or combination of tools -
that delivers the best results as a whole.
" For example, " Fortin begins, " we ran
two very well-known [pieces of] proposal
software congruently for over a year to
see where the pitfalls were with each. " In
the beginning, both had similar features
and checked off the same boxes. " It wasn't
immediately clear which would be the
best solution, as both looked good and
met our needs, " Fortin states. He adds
that NDS Integration eventually settled
for the solution that Fortin knew could
integrate best with the overall process.
What Can Grow With You?
Dan Schmidtendorff, president and CEO
of Communication Company, echoes this
sentiment, adding, " The key is to establish
what is important to your business
structure today and [what] has the ability
to grow with you. " In his case, the efficiency
of combining software under one
platform was critical to success.

versation further, adding that commercial
AV and security integrators should look for
systems that allow them to manage information
with minimal keystrokes and less
repetition. " The more keystrokes you can
eliminate, the more associates will be able
to do their jobs and take care of the customer, "
he counsels. In essence, he argues
that the main idea behind implementing
business-resource software is to streamline
a company's processes - not to add to the
extensive workload already in place.
Peters concurs, noting that one of
the main things to keep in mind when
looking at a business resource is to try
to use the core functionality as much as
possible, without requesting multiple
custom updates. " When a software is built
with too many [customizations], it can be
very difficult to upgrade as new releases
come out, " she reflects. That said, Peters
states that enterprise resource planning
(ERP) tools are always looking to improve
their features. Accordingly, it's important
to stay on top of all new releases and features
when implementing this software.

integrators is simple: " ...Use the system to
