The process of implementing SapphireOne into business:
SapphireOne is a very versatile product and caters to many business types.
SapphireOne offers three types of product –
1. Sapphire Single User for small business,
2. SapphireOne Client/Server for medium to large sized business and
3. Sapphire Web Pack solution for small, medium and large sized business.
In order to reap the full benefits of the SapphireOne solution package, SapphireOne commences the implementation process by carrying out a detailed analysis of an organizations core competencies and requirements.
The analysis stage is broken down into multiple steps as described below:
Step 1: Analysis / Scope / project Initiation Document (PID)
This process involves meeting with key personnel within the organization’s business units,to discuss accounting needs, along with current and desired business procedures and processes. At the end of this process SapphireOne project managers will discuss with the host organization the capability of the SapphireOne to meet their requirements. A needs analysis document will be provided to the host organization, with this analysis being used as a basis for the next step, the development of the customised implementation plan.
Step 2: Customised Client implementation plan and work breakdown structure
This involves documenting tasks which are required to be completed and task allocation – who will be responsible for the completion of each task and how long each task is estimated to take?
Upon completion of the customized implementation plan, SapphireOne project managers will provide a PID detailing what will be required in order to produce a successful implementation of the SapphireOne ERP accounting software. These items may include:
•Breakdown of resources that are required on both sides,
• Break of tasks that need to be completed,
• Resources allocation to each task,
• Timelines for completion of tasks,
• Any customisation of the application,
• The estimated time required for the implementation, or
• Estimated budget.
Step 3: Implementation of the SapphireOne solution
After the PID has been completed, provided and approved, implementation of the SapphireOne application may be scheduled to commence. Depending on the requirements of the organization, this may happen immediately, or at a date agreed by the client.
