System Implementation and Change Management Counsel
In addition to providing end-to-end technology services to convert to new systems, we can also help you understand, and get in front of, change management demands.
Improvements – in technology and process – require considerations beyond “Go Live”. We have expertise in helping organizations reach full adoption of their new systems and processes.
Data Governance & Master Data Management (MDM)
Data is an asset to any organization. It represents the building blocks of our decision-making and can be modeled to help us understand where we are at present, as well as identify future risks and opportunities.
As toolsets become more sophisticated and our data needs mature, accuracy is critical. We need a framework that can allow us to establish a threshold for acceptable data quality to maximize ROI (Data Governance) and develop tools and processes that will help us maintain that quality, without overspending to attain perfection (Data Management).
If you’re ready to get started, or if you have questions about where to begin– Zuri Group can help! We’ve worked with a number of nonprofit and higher education organizations to establish a Data Governance groundwork and a consistent, sustainable Master Data Management practice.

If you’re using multiple systems, we can help you untangle and improve your current configuration – this includes revisiting policy and procedure manuals, training, and data improvements.
