Implementation Strategy

Implementing a new software solution carries with it several challenges. The process can be overwhelming, confusing, and lengthy—all reasons that can cause companies to avoid making the switch at all. This leads to efficiency and profitability issues as companies continue doing business in a broken way. Additionally, when businesses take the plunge and embark on the software implementation process, inadequate planning and unrealistic expectations can set the project up for failure and costs can skyrocket as a result.

Challenges in Out of Box Implementation

  • Misaligned expectations.
  • Data Integrity.
  • Lack of preparedness among the project team.
  • Lack of preparedness among users.
  • Lack of support from the vendors.
  • Inadequate software training tools.
  • Declining productivity
  • Length of time of implementation
  • Conducting business as usual while learning, training and migrating to a new system
  • Inconsistent or inadequate training
  • Software Legacy integration/migration
  • Time-consuming data entry
  • Lack of support beyond the implementation phase
  • Software Portability and Backward Compatibility

Gap Analysis

Gap analysis is the comparison of actual performance with the desired or expected return. It helps in identifying the gap between the need of the client and out of the box software products.

How we perform Gap Analysis

  • Evaluate each area of client need against identified out of the bod modules functionality categorize
  • Critical Level functionality
  • Identify and secure the scope
  • Nice to have vs. must-have features and functions
  • Budget (Person-days, buffer)
  • Timing (Phases of planning, the resource available)

Solutions for Effective Implementation

  • Documented expectations are the criteria for User Acceptance.
  • Data architecture, design becomes the basis for Data Integrity.
  • Trained and qualified Project team members execute the project.
  • Adequate training and awareness programs help Users of the software.
  • Identified vendors are made aware in advance of their requirements.
  • Software training tools facilitation done through various media.
  • Make some implementation activities parallel to minimize declining productivity
  • Length of time is worked out from the beginning and update shared on weekly basis
  • Dedicated time allotment requested for learning, training and migrating to a new system
  • Data entry or Data Migration process is identified well in advance to align with the timeline
  • Lack of support beyond the implementation phase
