ERP Implementation

A successful ERP solution is the foundation on which companies can launch new initiatives, streamline and improve existing operations, reduce costs and grow the bottom-line.

But even the best ERP solutions count for nothing if they are not implemented properly.

The SYSPRO IDEAL Implementation Methodology is a single, world-wide, scalable, structured and phased implementation approach that consists of pre-defined inputs, activities and outputs to deliver a solution on time and on budget.

K3 SYSPRO’s ERP Implementation Methodology:

  • Uses our experience and knowledge of best practices to your benefit
  • Provides visibility to and accountability of our activities and services
  • Uses your resources effectively
  • Empowers you and your employees to know and leverage the solution for your business
  • Scales to meet the complexity or simplicity of your implementation needs and your company’s capabilities

Initiate Phase

Ensures all parties have an aligned understanding of the business, its requirements and the requirements of the project.

Design Phase

The project team explores the business objectives and needs and designs a solution that will best meet those needs within the project parameters.

Engineer Phase

The project team starts to configure and build the solution based on agreed design parameters. This phase includes customization, configuring a go-live system and simulating a live environment.

Actualise Phase

The live site is created. Prior to going live, the final data is loaded and validated. The project team will train the people who will work on the new system to ensure users are ready and prepared to use the new software.

Leverage Phase

Once everything has been balanced and signed-off, we move to the Leverage Phase which closes out the project.

Supporting the ongoing implementation processes are a number of project control and governance activities to ensure that the project is meeting its defined objectives, remains on its scheduled track, within the defined scope and budget and assists in ensuring that resources are being managed effectively. This process is adhered to by all our project managers.

Project Management

When it comes to implementation, we advise that you plan ahead, work to promote change within your organisation, set realistic SMART goals, and understand why you are implementing ERP in the first instance. Your Project Manager will help to facilitate all of these and ensure that you have good buy-in from your own team, to aid a successful implementation.

Your Project Manager is a mobile resource offered by K3 Syspro. They will quickly integrate themselves with the rest of your team. They are supported by the K3 Syspro Project Management Office, whose role it is to provide an assurance and quality role to your project, assisting the Project Manager to help them meet your business objectives.

At K3 Syspro, we believe that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all ERP project. We understand that different projects and implementation teams require different levels of precision regarding the implementation of projects, for example, they may need to meet certain standards of compliance. In order to respond to this, we have our own range of different project management service packages, which are designed to tailor to your individual business needs and budget.

The Project Management Delivery Team is comprised of experienced career project managers, all of whom are PRINCE2 certified. They have knowledge of the wider ERP market and understand the need to objectively consider the specific requirements of your business, aligned to the need to deliver within often challenging timescales.

When you embark on your SYSPRO implementation, we will ask you to nominate a member of your team to be your own internal Project Manager. They are responsible for leading the implementation and overseeing the entire project to ensure that your key objectives are met. When selecting your Project Manager, make sure you identify someone with strong leadership skills and who is a strong communicator. Your own Project Manager will work closely alongside the K3 Project Manager we provide to you. They will share ownership of the project to ensure a successful implementation.
