Veridian and customer Fullscript will also conduct a presentation titled “Pre-Design: The Secret Step to Implementation Success.” The presentation will explore how the typical software implementation cycle consists of design, configuration, testing, training, and go-live.

By watching this presentation from Veridian and customer Fullscript, you will learn how to challenge what has traditionally been the status quo for an implementation to help you achieve a higher level of success in the design phase and beyond.
