Implementation Issues for Finance Best Practices

This section notes in Exhibit 11.1 the level of implementation difficulty that one can expect when installing the finance-related best practices in this chapter. Exhibit 11.1 describes the cost and duration of implementation for each best practice. Since most of the best practices are Internet-based, there is no up-front acquisition cost, which keeps the cost of implementation squarely in the “inexpensive” category. However, many of these services are fee-based or require extra fees for advanced services, so there will be incremental charges associated with their use.
