Project Management

Plan, execute, monitor and control the project effectively and efficiently Enables continuous feedback ,reprioritization of task and improvements to maximize stakeholders value Our methodology uses the same set of project stages across all work streams. This helps ensure that various teams across work streams and locations are able to co-ordinate better throughout the project Provides sufficient flexibility to include various packaged technologies/platforms as an integrated work-stream across the four key areas; Master data and data integration, Business process, Product configuration, systems integration Design To-Be Business processes considering operational and functional changes on EBS platform

Common Framework

Powered by Technology

Business Impact Analysis

Addresses organizational, communication and training requirements

Accelerated Delivery

Each work-stream and sub work-stream is enriched with tools, templates and samples that we have created over the years. These tools help us reduce planning and execution effort
