The Project

Affected users a knowledgeable potential represent for the company that should be if not used for the development of specifications for the new software is even indispensable. What objectives should be for the user? Where was there at the previous software the most problems and inefficient work processes? These and other questions the user more competent than an outsider, since they work every day with the software. By incorporating their concrete application problems, the employees feel taken seriously. The appreciation of the company toward them increases; they are motivated, because they can and must contribute their experience.

In the final stages before the rollout, the employees receive project-accompanying up-to-date news. A report in the form of a final evaluation will be an accompanying communication on the first implementation successes should be spent at the end of the project instead, and after the successful implementation of the software.
