These organisations benefit from the Enterprise Solution because: - all applicable Planon functionalities and capabilities can be included in the licence. - configuration tools are available, supporting inhouse application management and a fast implementation of (future) changes. - integration tools are available, supporting configured interfaces and data exchange with other systems. - the solution includes the Accelerator best-practice to jumpstart the implementation and this can be modified/extended during the full lifecycle. - the solution comes with the Accelerator Implementation Methodology (AIM) that ensures an implementation is on time, on budget and within scope.
These organisations benefit from the Essentials Edition because: - only essential functionality is available, avoiding the potential overhead of unused functions or features and associated investments. - the edition ensures lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by using standard solutions and configurations, including immediate, fully automated access to the latest features and functionality. - implementation efforts are restricted to a preset and fixed number of days, and throughput time is limited to a preset number of weeks by using ‘as-is’ standard functionality and a standard Edition Onboarding Service (EOS). - the edition is very easy to learn and simple to use in daily practice. - if business requirements change, it is possible to upgrade to the Enterprise Solution to ensure continuity of investment.
