First Contact to Go-Live
ERP implementations, from the first meeting to going live, can take from 6-10 months depending on the scale of the project. The process is complex and a range of specialised services are required for a successful implementation.
At Arcus we believe the success of an implementation is based on the foundation of a full project scoping, including:
- Needs Assessment and ERP GAP Analysis
- Business Process Definition User and Role Workflows
- Transaction Case Examples
- Detailed Project Implementation Plan
Once the scope is fully articulated and confirmed, Arcus use a test environment and an Agile method to execute the range of implementation tasks in parallel rather than sequentially.
This process ensures the testing, verification and confirmation of: data migration, configurations, customisations, workflows, integrations, reports, dashboards and any other facet of the implementation.
In addition the test environment provides you with early access to the ERP for training and familiarisation.
