Missing a go-live date for a CMiC implementation can be costly in terms of both time and money, not to mention the potential impact on the success of the implementation. But why is missing a go-live date such a big deal, and what can be done to avoid it?

The Importance of Meeting Go-Live Dates

A go-live date is the date on which a new system or application is launched and made available for use by end-users. In the case of a CMiC implementation, missing the go-live date can have a number of negative consequences:

  1. Delayed project timelines: Missing the go-live date can throw the entire implementation timeline off track, causing delays and cost overruns.
  2. Increased costs: The longer an implementation takes, the more it will cost in terms of consulting fees, internal resources, and potential lost revenue.
  3. Reduced adoption and engagement: If end-users are unable to access the new system on the go-live date, they may lose faith in the project and be less likely to adopt it when it does go live.

Steps to Ensure Go-Live Dates are Met

ProTek Partners – Construction Technology Services, we take go-live dates very seriously and work closely with our clients to ensure that they are met. Here are some of the steps that we take to avoid missing go-live dates:

  1. Comprehensive planning: We work with our clients to develop a detailed implementation plan that outlines all of the necessary steps and timelines for a successful implementation.
  2. Regular check-ins: We schedule regular check-ins with our clients to discuss progress, identify any potential issues or roadblocks, and make any necessary adjustments to the implementation plan.
  3. Team communication: We emphasize the importance of open and frequent communication between all members of the implementation team, including the client’s team and our consulting team.
  4. Risk management: We identify potential risks and issues early on in the implementation process and develop contingency plans to mitigate those risks and keep the project on track.

By following these steps and working closely with our clients throughout the implementation process, we’re able to ensure that go-live dates are met and that projects stay on track to success.

Missing a go-live date for a CMiC implementation can have serious implications for the success of the project. However, with proper planning, communication, and risk management, it is possible to avoid this costly mistake and ensure a successful implementation.
