What will it cost?

The cost of your bcFood implementation is comprised of the following components:

  • Software – Microsoft Dynamics NAV, bcFood, necessary enhancements to your solution, and, potentially, any related products.
  • Services – Implementation, training, development, and support.
  • Software Maintenance Plan – Microsoft’s annual software enhancement keeps your system up-to-date.
  • Infrastructure – Any new software/network infrastructure needed to meet your requirements.
  • Equipment – Computers, mobile devices, memory expansions, and any other components that will allow you to get the most out of your software.
  • Soft Costs – Employee time, etc.

Beginning with the sales process and throughout our initial assessment of your organization’s software needs, we will strive to provide you with a realistic estimate of all of the  foreseeable costs associated with your system implementation. It is important to note, however, that the single most important factor in this process is you. Your investment and willingness to spend time with our consultants before making any purchasing decisions will ensure that those decisions are the right ones. This may entail meetings, site visits, questionnaires, teleconferences, software review, and workshops, all involving multiple people in your organization.

A successful software implementation requires 100% commitment and participation from all parties, both the vendor and the client.

Without this level of commitment, you cannot reasonably expect to rely upon a project quotation. Our approach is designed to make sure all of our implementation projects are ON TIME, ON BUDGET, and TO EXPECTATIONS. We have many happy clients that can attest to our ability to meet these goals!

Can I finance?

A number of different financing options are available for your ERP project. Once we have an idea of what your implementation will cost, you can determine whether or not financing is right for you. If it is, we will assist you in obtaining the necessary funding.
