We then prepare a high-level roadmap with effort estimates. We take the time to get to know your business model and infrastructure and create a framework for change tailored to your needs.

IMPLEMENTATION AND TECHNOLOGY
From rationalizing and optimizing utilization of your existing infrastructure, to exposing and resolving security risks, to planning and blueprinting a new procurement operating model, to the strategic planning of your buying needs and supplier relationship management, you can count on Bristlecone to be your trusted partner in digital transformation. Our ability to work collaboratively with clients from strategy through execution and beyond sets us apart.

We achieve seamless digital transformation by expertly managing the many moving parts spanning platforms, projects, processes and people. And as trusted consultants, we help our clients create procurement frameworks and strategies that are effective and competitive.
We provide system maintenance, support and end-of-life services. But we also go beyond traditional support and managed services by working with clients to achieve better business alignment, increase transparency, gain productivity, improve business outcomes and react quickly to changing market dynamics.
In today’s fast-paced digital world, core operations must be swift, streamlined and efficient. We help customers enhance operational agility and accelerate the transformation of business processes using procurement tool adoption, training and AMS services. A renewed focus on procurement-related services positions your business for competitive advantage.
Legacy system life can often be extended through performance enhancements that require no new hardware or software. We can also improve productivity by diagnosing and fixing problems caused by bottlenecks, out-of-control database growth and security concerns.
Most change initiatives fall short of reaching the required adoption level because they fail to take risks and challenges into account. We prevent this by looking at change from all angles and addressing the people side of change. We’ll help you manage expectations, raise awareness, develop and deliver consistent communications, entice participation, and increase user skill and confidence.
