Implementation and Rollout of ERP
The client had
built and designed a best of breed ERP and CRM application that
needed to be implemented as soon as possible internally. A number
of firms refused to take responsibility to convert and test the
converted data, when the client contacted us to take up the seemingly
impossible task of converting data from various sources into the
single new application.
A rollout plan
was prepared and responsibilities to various groups and individuals
assigned. Using the project plan as the basis, steps to map data
elements, identify processing logic required to transform data.
By interacting with various groups who had a stake in the success
of the project, the implementation team was able to successfully
convert and deploy the application for user testing.
clean the customer data using tools such as Group1, D&B batch processing
and manual cleaning were put in place. The whole cycle from extracting
data from the legacy to load data into the single ERP database was
automated using shell scripts, C programs and other tools. Processing
speed was of significant importance here as the volume of data being
converted exceeded over 4 million records.
Logic and processes
to accept better quality of product data from sources such as EDI
catalogs, CNET and manual cleaning were put in place and wherever
automation was possible implemented.
data such as orders, returns and payments were converted and kept
in sync with the ongoing legacy system by means of one time conversion
and an ongoing conversion of data on a daily, automated basis.
on the impressive performance and results we had with handling the
volume and bringing about consistency with the data, the client
awarded other software development projects to Suha.
