Subject Matter Expert (SME)
Implementors will usually ask their clients to assign a subject matter expert (SME) to the implementation team. The challenge with this request is that your team most probably has limited experience with your new solution. Therefore, it will be difficult for you to ensure that the design and configuration decisions that you make will ultimately provide the most effective accounting and reporting available within your solution. Because we understand your accounting and reporting needs and we understand modern cloud accounting solutions, we can help you ensure that you are getting the most value out of your new system.
Chart of Accounts and Dimension design
Your chart of accounts and dimensional structure is the foundation for a successful implementation, as your ultimate goal is robust, effective, and efficient reporting. As with building a house, if your foundation is faulty, the house will have significant issues. Most implementors provide very little guidance when it comes to ensuring that you have developed the right structure for your organization. They rely on you to provide your chart of accounts and dimensions. At Michaud Accounting Solutions, we “begin with the end in mind” – Reporting. Our robust knowledge of modern cloud accounting reporting functionality, gives us the tools to help you define your structure based on your reporting needs, ensuring that you begin the process with a strong foundation.
It has been our experience that most implementors do not provide training that is specific to the clients use of their modern cloud accounting solutions. Instead, they often provide “general training” on the system, as you work through the process with them, and may offer web-based training, which is also general in nature. At Michaud Accounting Solutions, we take a more intimate approach to training our clients. Our training is specifically tailored to the functionality that your team will use and how you will use that functionality. We even offer to prepare a custom training manual and workbook to go along with your training, which provides a useful and helpful reference guide after training is completed.
