May Monthly News Round Up

May’s been a very busy month for us here at IT Works Recruitment…here’s a quick review of the articles from this month that you should read:


Sam Cross started the month off by asking why so many businesses are moving from Infor On-Prem to Cloud. A lot of what he has to say is just as relevant to any business considering moving to a cloud system – and as your competition may be doing just that it’s best to stay ahead.


With success on her mind, Senior IFS Recruitment Consultant Emily Hunter looked at the requirements needed for a successful IFS implementation. These aren’t projects you ever want to go wrong, so improve your chances with Emily’s advice.


The debate over permanent placements as opposed to contractors will always be ongoing, but two of our team offered their thoughts this month. Austen Sparks makes the case for freelance contractors. Meanwhile, Chantelle Cox discusses day-rate contractors against fixed-term placements.


In a similarly wide focus, Lewiss Buckel has some thoughts on deciding on the right size of project team. Getting this wrong can mean heavy delays or serious overspending, so it’s an important decision to get right!


Another big factor for project calculations is how long they’re going to run. From Joe Lowe in our NetSuite team is an answer to the question: How long does a NetSuite implementation really take?


Focusing in on a specific market sector, Joe Anderton asks how important a full-suite ERP is to the modern manufacturing industry.


And to round out the month, two connected pieces by Matt Stanley, who gives us a blueprint for a successful HR systems team and also weighs up the cost of a bad HRIS implementation.


In a constantly moving industry there are always new questions coming up and our team will always have an expert opinion on the topic. Make sure you check back regularly and follow our LinkedIn page to guarantee you never miss out.​
