Implementation

It is said, “first right move leads to half of the war won”; thus, it’s fundamental to have a correct implementation of ERP for optimal utilization.

Proposal Stage: FOCUS responsibility starts from the time when the client is interested in the software and willing to receive commercial proposal. To achieve this we conduct Bird’s Eye View Study of the business requirements and other factors, which would affect the cost of the project. Proposal is then submitted for the clients review with all the indications where the cost may go up due to defined reasons.

Business Process Study: This is a detailed study, conducted by interviewing different department users indicated by the client (Users interviewed are the decision makers and non-decision makers). After interviewing process, FOCUS consultants then collect all the important documents, which are used in the business process to understand the business process and the requirements of each department. A standard input questionnaire is submitted to all users to identify the requirements.  Also, we collect information regarding the frequently viewed reports and the reasons for viewing, this list also includes the wish list of reports that users would like to have. After the process of interview, collecting internal documents and reports required, Focus Softnet team summarizes the requirements and prepares a detailed document mentioning the Documentation flow, Authorization flow, Requirements by each module, requirement of reports for each department and the business rules to be included. This document gives an overview of the proposed implementation.

Implementation Planning: Once the BPS (Business Process Study) is approved and authorized by the steering committee for ERP, the planning of implementation schedule is designed.  A detailed plan of Implementation is produced, which includes number of hours and days required to accomplish the whole project bifurcated by each module.

Customizations: Upon the approval of BPS, Focus Softnet will submit a document indicating the customizations required, which are specified by the authorized users of the client. A special report, which includes customizations required and reasons for the requirements is presented to our client. Once the users accepts the customizations required then development team of Focus Softnet will submit the time frame for development, testing / debugging and integrating with ERP.

FOCUS Deliverables Report: Before starting the implementation, Focus Softnet will submit the deliverables report indicating the things to be delivered to the client to accomplish the project which includes software, licenses, training, customization, integrations and data import

FOCUS Requirements Report: Before starting the implementation, Focus Softnet will submit the requirements reports indicating the things which are required from the client to accomplish the task which includes identifying the decision making users by department, users list, payments, IT support, functional support and resources.
