FAQA Closer Look into EnABLE
So Powerful, Yet Simple.
EnABLE is a software solution of unparalleled capabilities and depth. So much so that its 2,500 screens, dozens of functionalities, robust database management, and adaptable reporting and tracking tools may seem overwhelming at first – until you experience the system’s intuitive ease of operation.
Since its introduction in 2009, the success of EnABLE has been based on one promise: We will partner with you – during deployment and into the future – to make absolutely certain your implementation of EnABLE is beyond successful. Our goal is to make it a transformational experience.
EnABLE was engineered from the ground up to perform all end-to-end financial services and program management functions for government agencies.
The fact that most new EnABLE deployments originate from recommendations and references from agencies that use it is a gratifying testament to the system, and the best possible proof of its power.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Answer: First, we discuss your agency’s structure, services and revenue sources. We need to understand exactly how your agency does business. There are many variables, depending upon the state and the agency.
We have 28 years of experience in delivering sophisticated software solutions for government that solve complex problems in financial services, accounting and program management. To serve agencies with integrity and longevity, we are duty-bound to portray EnABLE’s capabilities honestly.
We’ll know quickly if EnABLE is a good fit for you.
Answer: EnABLE interacts with all standard general ledger software. It can also interact with most CRM systems – although many clients find EnABLE’s client management and communications capabilities more than sufficient.
Answer: We allow about 6 months to implement a full deployment of EnABLE, including all data transfer, testing and training. These are the steps we will take with you:
- Discovery – We’ll start with preliminary discussions about how your agency does business. We’ll lead you through our Discovery Workbook, asking questions, listening and gathering information. You’ll work with a team of business analysts, developers, support personnel and a project manager. This team will work closely with your designated staff members throughout the implementation process.
- Requirements Validation – Once we understand your functions and processes, we’ll create a detailed document listing all your requirements by subject. We create a Requirement Traceability Matrix to reference as we continue.
- Analysis and Sorting – At this point we deliver an in-depth analysis of everything your agency does and how your users will interact with EnABLE.
- Configuration – Our Configuration Workbook guides us as we build your custom configured EnABLE system, in your hosting environment or ours. This is an exacting process. We design the system the way you want it, adding suggestions, solutions and best practices we have gathered from 12 years of successful EnABLE deployments.
- Data Transfer – A data management system is only as good as the integrity of its data. We have automated much of this process to reduce errors, but it’s still quite an undertaking. We’ll make sure your data is accurate with our in-depth verification processes.
- Testing – We author custom scripts to test all functionalities on your EnABLE system.
- User Acceptance Testing – We’ll work with you to make sure everything is functioning perfectly.
- Training – We’ll conduct in-depth training, personalized for your system, with your agency personnel that will be using the system. This typically takes a week. We’ll record all training material to video, so you’ll have it for reference and subsequent training.
- Post Deployment - We’ll know your system, how you use it, and know your staff. We’ll provide attentive ongoing support, new releases, new functions, and any additional configurations you need as you use your EnABLE system in your daily operations.
