Engage. Input. Transform. Output. Value.
Getting to Know You
During our Engagement stages, the team at FMT works to identify and align with prospective clients based on a mixture of industry, location, company size, market position, and competitive intent. We use a combination of tools and techniques to find our ideal clients, and to help our ideal clients find FMT.
Smart Questions Get Smart Answers
Systems don’t work in isolation, and neither do we. We consider your entire environment prior to making solution recommendations. We want you to know exactly what you’re buying when you choose to work with FMT.
Your engagement team will use one or more structured questionnaires in order to gather information around your requirements for ERP, CRM, Integration, IT, Networking, and/or Support. We supplement these discovery documents with live discussions and on-site assessments in order to swiftly put together a complete and accurate project scope that includes timelines, resource requirements, and licensing estimates.
Delivering the Solution
The professional technologists and business consultants at FMT work hard to deliver the greatest possible value from your technology investment. We look for the ideal combination of price, performance, scalability and supportability in everything we implement.
Our diverse workforce of seasoned supply chain professionals, innovative marketing and commerce specialists, and established financial technology experts use FMT Works on every project to maintain velocity, visibility and build value. We work primarily on-shore while providing limited off-shore and near-shore options when appropriate to help manage costs.
During the implementation, we work hard to keep costs down, but not at the expense of quality, accuracy or delivering a complete solution. We believe the combination of PMO, IT insights, intrinsic customer support, managed user acceptance testing (UAT), change management and ongoing training provides a solid recipe for success.
Making Good Choices
We represent three of the most premium technology platforms in the world, along with leading third-party software applications and services partners. This provides our clients with solid options. And, our team has both general capabilities and deep vertical expertise. We work hard to find the businesses that will realize the most possible value from our work together to implement and optimize solutions from Microsoft, Oracle NetSuite, and Salesforce.
Whether you’re in manufacturing, distribution, services, life sciences, food & beverage, or something altogether different — FMT works to get to know you.
Measuring What Matters
We work together with your team to select and set targeted “Value Metrics” for each major project. These specific, measurable, and prioritized outcomes validate the success of our work together. Beyond the useful financial perspectives of TCO or ROI, Value Metrics describe the business processes and performance outcomes that matter to your organization.
Once established, we monitor your unique Value Metrics throughout our project to make sure our teams stay focused on building the value that matters for you and your business.
Output: Lasting Value
Following a completed project, as our clients transition from working with the Delivery team to Customer Support, we revisit the Value Metrics established at the outset of our work together. If we’ve done what we set out to do, we can recognize the progress and affirm the value creation. We also use this opportunity to evaluate the relative strength of the solution, identify areas for improvement or optimization, and determine how best to continue our work together as partners.
Mapping the Path to Value
Once we’ve found each other and determined that working together has the potential to create solid value for you and your team, FMT works hard to establish clear, complete, and specific expectations from you about your business objectives, your key supply-chain processes, and the combined resources we have available to bring a smart solution forward for your business. We move quickly and involve you and your team each step of the way.
Staying on Task
Throughout the transformative process of project execution, FMT works to establish an efficient, transparent, and effective project cadence. Our Project Management Office (PMO) provides vital oversight of project execution. Qualified project managers speed project completion, maintain visibility, and help catch small issues before they grow in size and impact.
Our project management team provides a centralized source of project information and works to identify, organize, and prioritize solution delivery to include resource management, project approvals, and costs.
