Tounca Project Marketplace – First Month

Tounca LLC has just announced results after first month of working with their new platform Tounca Project Marketplace. If you don’t know what it is, this is unique online project marketplace for business solutions. This is the first online marketplace for projects and by their own words this is something similar as Airbnb or Uber, but for the business solutions. But as this is project engagement, this is a bit more complicated as platform has to prepare completely project team for implementation. But they also provide absolutely free-of-charge support for all potential clients for choosing the most fit solution based on their requirements as well as finding the best team.

After one month from starting, they had to find their own place on the web. But in this period they attracted almost 300 experts worldwide and they are already ready in Tounca Expert’s Community. Tounca also signed first project for implementation. We will wait some period to get first feedback and hope they will have new projects. They are available globally and you can find experts there for almost all global business solutions. You can find more information related with their first month on their report below:

Tounca LLC is an American Limited-Liability Company with headquarters in Dover, Delaware, filed on May 24, 2021. Tounca is a privately held, bootstrapped company, meaning it operates on its own profits without external investors up to date. Company is new but built on strong and long-term expertise. Even so, our plan is to become the global leader in next-generation services.

Of course, there is no way how to overcome all risks in advance and to create absolutely safe implementation and because of that we need to have properly risk management on the project. But it is possible to reduce the most of them and overcome some of them with a great impact.

As a story about successful ERP implementation is story about satisfy customer, we will try to explain what customer can do to overcome the most important risks. There is not a magic wand, but there are some instructions how to avoid issues and you will see, they are not complicated, and you just need to organize yourself and to ask for help sometimes.

Choosing the best solution

Choosing the right solution is probably the most important task, but even if it looks easy, this is mostly one of the most complicated. This is because that in most cases you will make research on your own, you will use your or your colleagues experience, or you will start to discuss with some of partners you believe they can provide this solution for you.

If you try to make your own research, probably you will not catch all information…

NAV4Construction

Prior to launching an ERP implementation, usually an analysis of project costs and savings is necessary in order to secure project funding. From a financial return on investment (ROI) standpoint, sr. management is typically looking for the hard numbers. While there are many potential benefits associated with ERP that can positively impact the financials, many organizations mistakenly base a significant portion of the project justification on employee staff reductions.

Of course, a new system may result in fewer employees.

Other managers have a tendency to insist on staff reductions that are not really feasible. After all, it is brand new software and it costs a lot of money.
