Project Management

It starts with project management. Your B&L support team, including your implementation manager and other experts, will be there at every step through your Odyssey implementation. Your implementation manager will coordinate implementation project planning, database transfer from your old system, training, key report transformation, business process re-engineering and Go-Live support. You are always in touch and can monitor your project 24/7 within B&L's Customer Web Portal.


After converting your data, B&L project consultants will customize a training program and schedule to fit your needs. To speed learning, you'll train using your data in a test database. You'll learn not just how to do things but why.

  • Educational tools include print materials, web-based videos and hands-on simulations to support different learning styles.
  • Training venues give you flexible options, including on-site training at your facility, classroom training at B&L's facility or web-based training that allows B&L to conduct mini-classes with interactive screen-sharing.. 

Once the training program is complete, your staff undergoes a testing and certification process using your own data. And after implementation, B&L continues to support your business needs by offering on-going educational options to keep your staff up-to-date with the latest improvements.
