Business leaders who choose to deploy an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution on premises in an increasingly cloud-trending world have several reasons for their decision. Many choose to keep their system on premises because they are inexperienced with and wary of cloud-based software. Others are concerned they have insufficient resources to move to a cloud solution because their existing system is full of customizations that will complicate migration processes. Some prefer on premises ERP because they feel it better supports regulatory requirements such as ITAR or FDA compliance. Regardless of why your business has chosen on premises over cloud-based ERP, your choice doesn’t have to limit your ability to compete with the companies whose capabilities are elevated by the cloud.

Now that she’s been with the company for the better part of a year, we asked Vee for her thoughts on her experience at Encompass. Here’s what she had to say.

First Impressions

From the moment I stepped into Encompass to interview for the Documentation Specialist position on January 28, 2020, until now, I’ve been exceptionally pleased.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I walked in, especially since I was about to be interviewed by a Managing Partner. I knew that I had to shake off my nerves and be the only person I knew how to be… me.

Upon arrival, I initially spoke with a lady who ended up sitting with me on the couch to chat. She learned a little more about me and not only what I can do for the company.

Many questions can be answered simply by engaging and not going straight for the jugular. Being grilled with those cookie-cutter questions in the past made me wonder if I was a Miss America contestant or a key suspect in a criminal case who was subpoenaed for court. After getting acquainted for a bit, it was time for my interview.

Another engaging conversation… I was still a little nervous, but at ease. It was finally refreshing to have dialogue that showcased my personality and talents to determine if both were suitable within the Encompass environment. I was introduced to my future co-workers. First impression? Friendly and genuine.

The managing partners have an open-door policy. Doesn’t that sound familiar? The difference here is that you’ve heard. They listen to understand before responding, instead of listening solely to respond. If there are any concerns, work-related or personal, they’re addressed and not left floating in limbo.

Part of the Team

Regardless of our specialties, we work as a team. We’re there if our clients are in a pinch, needing immediate assistance on projects that require ‘all hands on deck. Prepare a quick training to get us up to speed to comprehend your needs and we’ll keep the ball rolling until it’s time for it to stop.

This is the truest definition of a team that I’ve ever been a part of in my corporate career of 22 years. Solid foundations are built upon communication and trust, which leads to long-lasting relationships.
