NetSuite Implementation Methodology
SuiteSuccess implementations focus on the concept of rapid go-live, to ensure that you are getting a return on your investment in this new technology as quickly as possible. With SuiteSuccess, the system is loaded with scripts and bundles that provide an off the shelf solution, made specifically for MFG customers without the need to configure and implement the entire system from scratch.
For our customers, this means that the majority of the implementation effort required to get the MRP software solution up and running is largely done on day one, so we can focus our NetSuite implementation efforts on adding value to your business by enhancing the system to meet your requirements and solve your specific challenges.
Step 1. Business Requirements Definition
The first step in the implementation process is to conduct a thorough evaluation of your current systems, business requirements and the outcomes that you would like to achieve at go live. This information is then transformed into an implementation plan that delivers your required functionality and significantly improves your day to day operation
Step 2. NetSuite Consultant Build
Our team of NetSuite Implementation consultants will commence building and configuring your NetSuite environment in line with the requirements that were defined in the BRD. This build will provide a working concept of your NetSuite solution and be used as the base system for proof of concept demonstrations and user acceptance testing.
Step 3. Proof of Concept Demonstration
Your lead NetSuite consultant will organise an end to end demonstration of your NetSuite solution for both the key players involved in the implementation from your business, as well as other team members as required. During these demonstrations, we will have the opportunity to provide feedback on further improvements or enhancements which will be finalised ahead of user acceptance testing of your new Manufacturing software system.
Step 4. User Acceptance Testing
Once your instance of the SuiteSuccess Manufacturing Edition has been configured and customised to your requirements, and we have signed off from the project team that what has been demonstrated is in line with company requirements, we will then issue a NetSuite Login to the system for users for the purpose of user acceptance testing. We will gather resources from each department of your business and have them run real-life transactions through the system to test functionality, ensure the system is working the way you need it to, and that all GL impacts and reporting are correct. From Sales, operations, warehouse and finance we will conduct a thorough testing phase of the system to ensure that your go live is a smooth as possible.
Step 5. NetSuite Go-Live
Your go-live date is an exciting time, as this represents the culmination of a lot of hard work and the start of a new, better way of doing business. On Go Live Day, our consultants will be on hand to help your team transition to NetSuite as their new software and NetSuite SuiteSuccess Training your people on how to use NetSuite for their role, as well as provide useful advice on managing their dashboards to get the most out of the software system. Your NetSuite implementation team will be available for up to 4 weeks post go live to help your team transition to the new system and ensure that they are confident in their day to day use of the NetSuite Manufacturing software.
Step 6. NetSuite Managed Services and Support
After your go live, you will be supported ongoing by our managed services and support team, who are specialists in offering NetSuite support to our customers. This team will be able to assist you with the day to day running of the system, provide services for report writing or dashboard configuration and will proactively help you to continually improve your use of the NetSuite MFG platform. At Klugo, we focus on long term partnerships with our customers to ensure joint success in managing your NetSuite platform.
