Typical Implementation

TI Group recognizes the immense importance of understanding its customers' businesses to maximize the benefits of the software they invest on. A successful implementation is not limited to installing the software, but guiding the customer step by step through the implementation process, from planning for a right-headed-start to going live.

For this reason TI Group has adopted an implementation methodology that uses a flexible but structured project approach over seven discrete phases:

The above phases are rarely sequential and are most likely executed in parallel with other phases. In addition, through all the phases of the implementation, we work with our clients to improve their processes (Business Process Re-engineering).

Following this approach has allowed TI Group to:

  • Manage the implementations successfully

  • Complete the implementations in a timely manner

  • Maximize knowledge transfer to users in the shortest period of time

  • Minimize client implementation costs

  • Maximize client ROI and anticipated benefits

  • Minimize disruption of daily work flow

  • Streamline and improve processes and information flows

During the Implementation Planning Meeting we:

  • Determine tasks to be completed during implementation.

  • Assign responsibilities for each task, yours and ours.

  • Set deadlines for completion of tasks.

  • Program training sessions.

 

Software Installation

Before Software Installation we:

  • Verify your operating system compatibility with the software to be installed

  • Do a pre-installation survey on your server, workstations and printers to make sure they are compatible with the software.

Installation is then completed under the appropriate directory structure and optimal configurations.

  • Determine data files to be converted.

  • Extract data and run tests.

  • Correct for problems, if any.
