For a company to plan for future, it must have a clear understanding where it starts from. Every project should start with a valid picture of the AS-IS – current state of the business- in order to be able to see the TO-BE – the desired purpose. We can work together to build the roadmap for your business strategy, by helping you understand both your strengths and limitations, your goal vs. needs, opportunities and threats. Our wide experience in business processes assessment is a great asset when it comes to analyze and identify best practices and technology to define company’s future direction.

Comparisons between more
ERP solutions

Our team has the experience and knowledge to help you in your decision by providing an educated comparison between more ERP solutions.

Could be that you already have some starting points in your selection or you need a complete analysis of ERP solutions, we can help you to have a better understanding on what would be the compatible ERP solutions for your business.

Depending on the deployment method you prefer (on-premises/in cloud), the technology used in-house and the features you are looking for in an ERP, we will provide you the information you need to have the best picture of available choices corelated with your business specifics.

Finance process
migrations 

Some migration projects are very complex, with many moving parts. They will need the collaboration of many key people and teams within your organization.

Involvement with and feedback from team members should ideally be obtained in the planning, selection and implementation stages.

The finance process migration is a specialized form of process management whereby processes are moved from one computing environment to another. We will migrate your finance processes to Global Competence Centers offshore, and identify a Connected Application Portfolio (CAP), a user community, alongside preparing a work shadowing and transfer plan to assist with the whole transition.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions are strategic maneuvers for long-term growth. However, ERP implementations are typically the last thing on executives’ minds ...

when they head down this path. Our ERP consultants can ensure you’re prepared for the transition.

We will assist the deal team on all aspects related to ERP transfer during the transaction. This can range from licensing, transfer costs, connected applications, data cleansing, buyer deployment, data migration, transitioning, post go-live support, legacy system archiving and decommissioning.

Streamlining processes 

Integrations essentially concern your business’s data and processes. That’s why we ensure we thoroughly understand your operations.

By documenting and understanding your business processes- and being actively involved in enterprise-level streamlining initiatives from processes and roles to master data structuring and coding- we can easily map the flow of information between systems.

Data migrations 

Data migration is the process of selecting, preparing, extracting, and transforming data and permanently transferring it from one computer storage system to another. Planning, migration and validation are key to effective data migration.

Planning requires a clear understanding of design requirements, such as scheduling, replication requirements, hardware requirements, data volume and data value.

To guarantee effective data migration, we will transfer the master data and transactional data between various systems and infrastructure landscapes. This is to ensure data integrity and consistency.

Standardizations 

Data standardization is a key part of ensuring data quality. By standardizing management practices, this will also help migrate data to the central database with minimal interruption to company operations.

We will apply our customer’s streamlined guidelines over the existing systems, so that there is simple and quick data conversion and transfer. We will carry out integrity checks and ensure that there is also user assistance.

Process Design

Good process design is the basis for quality, efficiency and consistency in all operations of the enterprise. All our ERP implementations start from a solid understanding of the desired “to-be” business processes.

Designing new processes for the business involves thinking outside the box. The purpose is not just to convert the existing processes to the ERP system, but to find new processes that will improve on the existing ways of doing things.

This will involve us preparing the data flow and defining user roles and procedures. This can be for a whole ERP or just ERP-connected modules – sales, purchases, contracting and procurement, inventory control.

External interfaces 

No matter how good an ERP system is and how much tailored it is to fit the specifics of your business, it cannot cover all processes a company runs. Financial data is very important information that should be kept and analyzed in the company.

But it is not the only relevant data. Most companies use multiple tools for: reporting, contracting and procurement, track employees’ timesheets and expenses, etc. We have the experience to develop specific applications that would fit these purposes, but also to create the link between existing ones and the newly implemented ERP

Archiving and decommissioning 

When a company with a history on the market decides to implement for the 1st time an ERP or switch to a better suited ERP solution, the already existing data is analyzed.

Based on the Statutory/Audit/Business requirements, the decision to archive old data can bring added value to the performance of the newly implemented system. We can be part of customer’s efforts in classifying ERP data and establish availability and archiving strategy for it. Our team will provide support to the business to test and ensure archived data will be available in the long term in the new environment.

Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) 

A company’s day to day activity relies on data exchange. Documents, applications, systems ensure business processes and activities are recorded so that people can perform their daily tasks.

But what if all that gets lost in a matter of moments due to different causes: natural disaster, hardware failure, human errors, software viruses etc.? Our team can help in preparing system disaster recovery procedures for ERP landscape, aligned with customer’s plan for IT security and recovery. Integrate these procedures in the Business Continuity Plan and make sure regular DRP exercises are performed is a good strategy to minimize the risk of data lost.
