We will help you along the way

  • Implementation

    As a part of the implementation process we will be able to offer a number of services. For instance we will be able to customize our systems to meet your organization´s requirements. We will be able to custom build add on modules to our existing products or integrate our products with other systems you are using. If the needs of your organization changes over time you may add functionality or integrate our products with other systems at a later date.
  • Data Transfer

    In connection with an implementation of one of our products you may want to transfer existing data from other sources to the Palantir database. This could be data from other databases, from Excel files or from other types of software. We will be able to help you to convert this data and populate our database as a part of an implementation process. This could include users, entity data, figures or other structured data. We will also be able to help you to cross-check the information to sort out duplicates or inconsistencies in the converted data.
  • Integrations

    The Journal system can be integrated with your existing group accounting software. This process is something Palantir will be able to help you with. An integration could be set up mainly in two ways, an automated full integration and a file transfer integration which involves manual work in the form of extracting a file from Palantir and uploading it to the group accounting system.
  • Training

    Palantir offers training services for all our products. Training is essential as a part of the implementation process, but also later on when new users start to use the software. Our training programs can be tailored to fit the needs of each customer ensuring that all users get the maximum benefit from participating in the program.
