6 Steps for Successful  Implementation

In this post, our program manager Harshal Tole talks about the the necessary steps needed for a successful implementation. Every software’s usability and efficacy is determined by how well it was implemented to begin with. The software may be a great fit for a company and it may have been used to do great things at another companies, but how well it is implemented and adopted across the company will decide if it reaches its full potential to help the company’s bottom line. Implementation that is within budget and on time coupled with...

The Secret to Successful Retail Implementations

In this post, our director of customer success and retail strategy Libby Romfh discusses the secret to successful retail implementations. As the former director of store operations at Barnes & Noble, Libby has decades of experience here, along with an MS in organizational change management.

A McKinsey report found that, 72% of the time that projects failed, the reasons included either...

From Cinema To Stores: An Implementation Engineer’s Journey

“He woke up, panting, from a deep sleep with an accompanied sound. He soon realized his right palm was bleeding as he hit the lamp. He got up slowly and walked to restroom. He turned on the tap and as blood gushed through his fingers, he started to recollect the nightmare he just witnessed.” Ram exhaled. “What am I writing?” he thought to himself. He was supposed to write a professional blog post for his company, but he was writing a horror thriller instead. Back to work. How did a movie fanatic like Ram become an implementation engineer in a...

The Retail Technology Transformation

At 34, I feel old. I know that I am probably angering some readers with that statement, but it’s true. And from a tech-world perspective, I’m a dinosaur. I’m old enough to remember the excitement of renting VHS tapes from Blockbuster; old enough to know cell phones used to be referred to as car phones; and old enough to remember the “cha-ching” sound of a store’s cash register, before card swipes and chip inserts were trendy. When I first began my career in retail, the technical systems used in stores were mainly the register system and the...

16 Weeks: Thoughts From A Soon-To-Be Working Mom

16 Weeks: Thoughts From A Soon-To-Be Working Mom

When I asked my coworkers what I should write about for my blog post, everyone said “being pregnant while working.” This seemed a very odd notion to me. Barring extreme health situations, don’t most expectant mothers work during their pregnancy? Am I missing some sweet status quo that allows me to check out for nine months? Where do I sign up? The more I thought about it, I started to realize that from an outsider’s perspective, I’m not only doing my job, but I’m pulling double duty. Heck, triple or quadruple duty! It may seem odd to say, but...

Living Strategically

Before my time at Nextenture, I spent a large chunk of my childhood and adult life staring at squares for large portions of the day. This might not make much sense to you, but let me explain myself. My previous job was in quality control and assurance, but I had also competed at national chess tournaments in India from a very young age. As a result, I tend to relate every life with chess. Competing has given me quite a few life lessons that relate to situations in my current job. If you think an all-day work conference is brutal, try playing...

Adventure: My Overseas Journey to Startup Life

It’s almost been a year and a half since I moved to the United States in order to join Nextenture.  Before working here, I was born, raised and employed in India. I also worked for a Fortune 500 company that employed more than 200,000 people worldwide. It was about as far-off from American startup life as you could possibly get. Heading into my job, I loved the “corporate hustle.” I thrived on watching big organizations get even better, so why wasn’t I fully satisfied? This question confused me and continued to haunt...
