In order to enable a successful software implementation, Panorama works with the client team and the chosen software vendor to develop a technology roadmap and high-level project plan. Panorama uses its proprietary PERFECT Path ERP implementation methodology as a starting point to ensure the vendor has identified a realistic implementation timeline that takes key success factors into account. It also ensures that the plan includes considerations unique to the client, including resource availability, business trends that may affect implementation, etc.
This plan contains milestones and timeframes for major implementation activities, such as process workflow definition, configuration, testing, data conversion, training and so forth. It also outlines the appropriate phasing of functionality, either by geography and/or functional software module. Finally, this task defines the preliminary project governance structure and project budget associated with the recommended project plan.
