Why Levergent?

You've invested in the right tools. Are you using them in the right way?

Too often, companies implement new technology systems that simply recreate their existing business processes. They even pay for expensive customizations to get the new systems to do things in the same old way. They squander opportunities to introduce best practices that would seamlessly integrate their business processes with the core functionality of their new IT systems.

Or, companies struggle to roll out the basic functionality of new IT systems and never get around to implementing the advanced functionality that justified the purchase in the first place. One study of 2,000 global companies determined that they used, on average, only forty percent of the functionality in their ERP systems.

Even when companies develop their own custom applications, rather than using package software, they often succeed only in meeting their basic requirements.

Are you working for the technology? Or are you making the technology work for you?

Companies develop in-house applications without thinking though how to efficiently distribute, manage, and support those applications. What they have developed is software; what they need is a fully-supported software product. The in-house software becomes a management nightmare as the companies grow increasingly reliant on it.

Companies implement package software or develop in-house applications without properly documenting their systems. As memories fade and employees turn over, the companies lose their knowledge base of their own systems, which makes it difficult to solve problems in a timely fashion.
