Being able to work well with your software provider is critical to a successful ERP implementation.
We partner with customers in ways that are proven to reliably deliver projects:
We’re attentive to your input but freely share wisdom gained from 300+ projects completed
We’re flexible in our approach to project structure, methods and billing arrangements
Our dedicated Project Management Office and skilled consultants provide expert guidance
We provide timely, contextualised updates so you’re informed and issues are addressed fast
Our project management methodology ensures you’ll always feel confident that projects are on track, change is well-managed, and the desired business benefits will be achieved.
We wrote a white paper to explain our methodology in more detail:
The complexity of each ERP implementation project varies based on your business requirements, the outcomes you want to achieve, the structure of your operation, the number and type of users, and the amount of customisation needed.
Each business, and therefore each ERP implementation project, is different. We collaborate with your business to organise and run projects in a mutually beneficial way.
Your customised plan of attack leverages our experience and finely-tuned processes while accommodating elements that will make the project manageable for you.
Critical to this approach is our dedicated Project Management Office (PMO). They plan, direct and monitor projects, and keep you informed and in control at every stage.
The oversight, transparency and improved communication made possible by our PMO leads to reduced costs, better ROI, fewer risks, and faster and more streamlined projects.
Leverage Technologies’ PMO:
Facilitates kick-off and progress meetings
Manages timesheets, billing and invoices
Coordinates communication across the project team
Oversees project management methodology
Carefully manages changes to scope and deliverables
Generates frequent reports on progress, finances and risks
Creates a clear project schedule, budget and tasks
Identifies issues and opportunities for improvement
Ensures your business achieves the desired business benefits
Manages budget consumption and tasks
Monitors budget variances to avoid surprises
We’re experienced in applying both:
A linear, waterfall-based methodology
If you have a very straightforward ERP implementation, it can be implemented quickly, and you’re unlikely to require changes: a linear methodology may be ideal.
An agile methodology
If you have a more complex project with many variables, you may prefer an agile approach that enables you to revisit and revise the purpose of the project and how that purpose will be realised.
Our consultative approach starts before the project begins. We take the time to talk to you to understand your business and your goals for the future, so we can get on the same page and determine the best way to help.
Two businesses can implement an ERP, BI or CRM solution very differently depending on: sales processes, industry requirements, finance structures, B2C or B2B customer base, the need for mobile sales tools, in-house expertise, geographies within which the business operates and functional requirements.
We evaluate your objectives, capacity and risk to help you determine:
Product-purpose fit and functional checklist
How to handle historical
How to incorporate compliance standards
Configuration, development or integration needs
The ideal project structure and processes
Your training and support
A realistic project timeline and budget
How to incorporate governance protocols
Your internal resourcing requirements
Our team and your team both have important contributions to make.
You may have internal capabilities that allow you to largely ‘self-steer’ many aspects of the project, or you may require more hands-on support.
The key resources involved in projects of any size include:
Project Management Office
Leverage Technologies’ consultants and developers
Your internal leadership team
