Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Our Business Solutions team will take a hard look at the goals and business processes in all of your critical areas and recommend very specific metrics for which you can track and monitor progress. From those metrics we will work with you to develop Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that would be available from product dashboards and through reports so everyone can focus on what’s required of them, and ultimately be driving towards a common set of goals. These KPIs also give you the ability to benchmark your results against other company sites or industry and regulatory metrics. Our proven methodology will help you align your organization to the overall company goals.
Our team is there for you from pre-project planning through go-live and follow on support. During this critical early phase of the project, we will review your current requirements, help map out your processes, and ultimately create an efficient implementation plan that will deliver results. This first phase of the project sets the foundation by identifying your business objectives, understanding the technical environment that the solution will operate in, and providing baseline product knowledge to the core project team. We will work with your data and business objectives to develop detailed functional requirements, map out your implementation budget and schedule, assist in securing senior management endorsement and ultimately launch the project. We know your industry and understand the technology. We can help you establish the standards, and measurements for success, before you make a sizable investment.
Aquitas Solutions will work with you every step of the way. We will be your partner in success, making sure the team is fully equipped and all best practices are clearly documented, readily available, easily monitored and made a part of your everyday regular routine.

Integration: Our consultants leverage existing IBM and industry integration frameworks to insure your critical systems are seamlessly working together. Integration shouldn’t be scary or costly – and it is critical to insuring the correct information is where you need it, when you need it and eliminates costly double entry.
