Our services help you integrate a private version of Epernicus in your organization. We act as consultants, focused on both the nuts and bolts of customizing features and integrating systems as well as the very important strategic plan for rolling out and building organizational support for your custom version of Epernicus.
Customization to meet your organization’s needs
We work with you to understand your organizational structure and user needs. Based on this, we turn on or off over 50 options to provide you with the right features. We also customize the design and branding to fit your corporate look and feel. If necessary, we may add custom features that could have a large impact on user adoption or value in your organization.
Integration with existing systems
You may have existing enterprise systems that should be integrated with Epernicus. We can help you integrate systems and also define an integration roadmap. Such a roadmap enables you to do some integration up front, achieve initial success, and then plan for deeper integration in the future. We can integrate with systems ranging from general purpose infrastructure and collaboration platforms like directory services and Microsoft SharePoint to specialized solutions such as project trackers and electronic laboratory notebooks.
Pre-loading end-user data
You already have basic directory information about your end users, and you may have quite a bit more. We work with you to pre-load this information before launch so that your users can focus on adding high-value content. Information can be pulled directly from directory systems or uploaded via a manual import process.
Launch process—key to successful implementation
Our best practices help you achieve a successful launch. It's all about overcoming activation energy. Do this part right and you can build deep business value; do it wrong and your networking solution will never get off the ground. Our best practices focus on:
- Tried and tested step-by-step process leading to successful launch
- Includes limited launch to leading users, launch to thought leaders, general launch
- Communication strategies to motivate adoption
- Techniques to encourage utilization
