Velocity Systems' and its partners have been involved in this community for over a decade and have created a large network of relationships with both clients and other consultants who provide services similar to Velocity Systems. The implementation of a PeopleSoft packaged application requires a high degree of coordination of a lot of different skills. The resources provided by Velocity have worked in the industry as consultants for at least seven years and in that time generally have acquired multiple skills. A typical Velocity Systems consultant will have technical knowledge of how to customize the PeopleSoft application and either detailed functional business process knowledge or detailed infrastructure knowledge. The depth and diversity of skills provided by the resource is what gives Velocity Systems its excellent reputation in the PeopleSoft community. Velocity Systems is constantly marketing its services to PeopleSoft's user community base. When a prospect communicates an upcoming requirement, Velocity starts to identify and lineup potential resources to fill the need. Timing is everything in this business and Velocity must act quickly to prevent its competitors from taking the opportunity. Potential projects are monitored using a spreadsheet.
