How Software Implementation Works
While some implemenations may just be data migration or a simple upgrade, almost always, the work will fall within six phases. From Assessments to Rollouts, Catalyst can customize a solution that works for you.
We have to know the “what” and the “how” of what currently exists at your company. We do this by having 1-on-1 interviews and group interviews that give us insight into both where you currently are and where you want to be. An Implementation Plan is the result which servers as our guidance towards a successful implementation.
Now that we know how your company works, Catalyst builds a preliminary design and rolls it out to a core group of users. Through collaboration, the team builds a working solution which will become both a reference and/or development system whihch will remain in place so long as a production solution exists.
In order to build on the development system, Catalyst believes your company should have time to perform day to day work and make sure the development system is working as planned. Piloting allows the core team to become comfortable with what will eventually become the rolled out solution.
While we have documented, installed and piloted the solution, a thorough test must be performed prior to allowing all users to start performing day to day operations. Catalyst thoroughly documents this process such that we know it works click-for-click.
Our implementation team will also be the team that teaches you how to use the solution. We typically perform two different types of training, Core Team and End-User. Core Team is a more in-depth but still generalized training while End-user is a customized training for your company.
We know it works, now let’s make it official. Catalyst believes rolling a product out should be uneventful. Becaue we have dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s, we already know we have a working product. Now let’s support our end-users as they adapt and ultimately adopt the new solution.
