We appreciate and understand that every business is unique, and thus create solutions that integrate well into your business. We play an essential role in the business solutions process by offering diagnostics and developmental services in addition to our implementation skills.
Keeping that in mind, we have also developed a six-step process, which groups together logical ERP implementation functions. We are cognisant of the special dynamics involved in each project and manage the significant changes which occur whenever any system is deployed. This tried and tested methodology gives our customers a high level of assurance that the implementation will be successful.
6 Phases of Each Project:
Phase one - Diagnostic
The main objective of this phase is to gather enough information about the current situation in order to define the high-level project scope. A high-level understanding needs to be reached concerning the objectives and deliverable for the long and short term in order to create a well-informed strategy.
Phase two - Analysis
This phase is the official start of the implementation project. Here the overall goal is to define and agree upon all the business requirements related to ERP solutions. This includes recoding and documenting the current business processes and current points that are challenging, as well as the impact of system changes which may be necessary.
Phase three - Design
In the design phase we define how the business requirements will be implemented. We specify exact project plans and timelines. Then, with details of the resources available for the project, both from the client and ourselves, a clear and detailed project baseline is then created and development commences.
Phase four - Development
In the development phase the system is configured, unit tested, system tested and stress tested so that it can be proven to meet the client’s business needs and requirements. After this, it is submitted for User acceptance testing through a series of scenario simulation testing iterations, the process will prove whether the solution is robust and whether it works well.
Phase five - Deployment
Once you, our client are satisfied that the solution meets your requirements, the system will be deployed into your live environment. In order to make sure that the system is successful, data will be converted and staff will be trained. Test packs and a test environment provided by the business unit will be used together to confirm that the solution works properly.
Phase six - Operation
In the operation phase the client will start using the software as Parity staff assist them closely. To ensure that the change control management is effected and the staff members are confident with the operation of the software.
