How we implement :

1. As-Is & To-Be Study
Our Vertical Functional experts shall initially do a detailed As-Is Study and note down the requirements and scenarios in detail. We shall also demonstrate our Vertical Template with all required configurations for Industry so that we can get better input from the Key Users. The As-Is & To-Be requirements shall be documented and the same circulated for sign-offs. The Hardware sizing Document and Base Master Templates shall be given to the Client Project Manager.

2. Configuring & Customizing
The ERP Template shall be further configured and reports set as per requirements give in the Study. The same shall be tested with dummy Master data.

3. Pilot Demo & Realization
The configured Client Template shall be installed on demo server at client end. The template shall be demonstrated to the Key Users with sample data for all scenarios and processes as listed in the SRS document. Key Users shall approve and sign-off the realization document and confirm that system has met the requirements documented in the SRS.

4. Pre-Live Activities
The Key Users shall do the Module and integration testing of ERP. Masters that have been given by the Key users in templates shall be uploaded. Testing will happen on the actual masters given. Once testing is over, Key users with support of CTPL team shall do the end user training. All required Server and Client Application Installations shall be done. Open Items (GL Balances, Outstanding, Stock) etc shall be uploaded. All required Pre-Live Check list activities shall be done. All required Document outputs shall be checked.

5. Go-Live & Onsite Support
On predefined Live Date the system shall be considered to have gone live. All transactions shall happen through the ERP from that given date. CTPL team shall ensure minimum down time for the period. CTPL team shall help the client to establish an internal help desk for ERP and also setup the Support framework for handling remote support later on.

Our success lies not only in the ERP Solution but also the meticulous way in which we implement the ERP. We do not implement it as a ready to use solution but go about each implementation with micro level detailing.
