Intacct implementations or Dynamics GP implementations can be complicated projects with far-reaching implications for your organization. Choosing the right software is important, but enlisting the right help to get the system implemented properly and consistent with your goals and requirements is key.
Massey Consulting did a great job understanding and relating to our business needs,
Before we take on any project, Massey’s consultative process allows us to carefully determine what a successfully completed project looks like for your organization. This includes more than software features and functionality. We examine how the system will be used in the context of your broader business processes and define a plan to get you to point B including system design, conversion, training, integration and support.
Massey employs industry and project management best practices to insure that all project tasks and deliverables are completed according to schedule. Experience has shown that careful management of communication throughout the project is critical for project success. We share formal project plans with our clients and communicate project status proactively on each project to insure that the entire project team has full visibility.
Massey Consulting’s Project/Quality Management
Intacct’s implementation methodology is a delivery framework of phases, tasks, and milestones throughout the project. There are four key Phases:
The overall goal of the Plan & Analyze phase is to define the highest-value approach to implementing the accounting system to meet your needs.
To begin the Plan step, we will meet with you to further understand your goals and expectations as well as the strategic context and intent of the Project.
In parallel, we will jointly review and mutually agree on the detailed Project Plan and milestone dates aligned with your needs. We will also offer software product overview training to your key resources to enable productive participation in the configuration requirements process. The training provides an overall look at the software functions and features being implemented. It covers all functional areas of the application which are considered in scope for the Project.
In the Analyze step of this phase, via interviews and small group workshops, we focus on understanding and documenting your accounting software related product requirements, data migration/conversion, user training and deployment needs. At the end of the phase, we will also provide an updated implementation level of effort estimate reflecting the information gathered. Other key deliverables from this phase include: Conference Room Pilot (walkthrough of configured system), End User Training Plan, Initial Customer and Vendor Data Upload Approach and Deployment Approach. At the end of Phase I, Massey may document a more detailed Statement of Work with revised estimates. We will not proceed to Phase II without your approval of a new statement of work, if changes to the original Project scope have been made.
Massey is also available to assist you with other future project-based work such as module enhancements, additional training, new module implementations, system customization, and system integration and report writing to meet your changing needs.
Lastly, through our Massey account management process, we will continue to communicate with you about the new releases and the new features that can be utilized by leveraging the most current version of the software.
