Why Do I Need An Implementation?
When changing your business systems from a finance software to a more integrated system, you must be aware of the process implications of the new system. It is important that you know how the application is setup to fit your businesses unique processes. This means understanding the functionality, work flow processes, reporting principles, analytics, add-ons, customizations, etc of the application. The more you know about your system and how changes can affect it, the less risk when upgrading.
With Ambition Accelerator, we have developed a fast track implementation process for a pre-defined package of Ambition Forms and SAP Business One. Due to our in 'the Cloud' deployment, we can control many of the factors which can influence the time length of a standard implementation, and therefore offer a much enhanced proposition.
Fast Track Implementation
We have developed a methodology that allows us to rapidly deploy a system for you within certain parameters. If your needs fit the scope of our Fast Track Implmentation (which will be very likely for deployments of up to 5 users) then you benefit from a fixed cost deployment that could complete in a mater of days. Typically deployments take longer than this as your own staff need to be involved.
Our implementation process includes project scoping, system design, training, change management & long term support for the system and 'the cloud' hosting. We can adapt our processes to fit your needs, and we offer varying levels of customisation as required by our customers.
We realise that the biggest impact of the new system will be dependent on the investment of the users, and we endeavour to work to bring comfort to those who will be the front line users of the system
Types of Implementaion
We work with our clients to implement the system at the rate and way that suits them best. Each of the methods below has their benefits, and we are able to cope with each of them.
1. Parallel Conversion
A type of conversion in which both new and old systems operate together for a period of time is called parallel conversion. It is the safest type of conversion. The results of both systems are compared. The old system can be used until all problems in the new system are removed.
2. Pilot Conversion
In this type of conversion, one part of the organization uses the new system and the rest of the organization uses the old system. When one part of the organization is satisfied with the new system, the rest of the organization can start using it.
3. Phased conversion
A type of conversion in which individual components of new system are implemented one by one is called phased conversion.
4. Direct conversion
In this type of conversion, the old system is directly replaced by the new system. It is the most risky conversion. It may be necessary when time is very short. It is also called crash conversion.
