A roadmap to success

IFS ERP Implementation Methodology

Astra Canyon Group provides a comprehensive and effective roadmap to success with IFS ERP implementations, using the proven IFS Implementation Methodology. This methodology serves as a project management template, ensuring that each project is completed on time and within budget. The roadmap establishes a clear structure for the project team to follow, with key milestones and deliverables, and a communication plan to keep clients informed of progress.

The IFS Implementation Methodology consists of five phases:

  1. Initiate Project Phase - This phase focuses on smoothly transitioning the project from the sales phase into the planning phase. The Astra Canyon team uses the IFS Scope Tool to create a customer-specific IFS solution that meets the client's requirements.

  2. Confirm Prototype Phase - A prototype of the IFS ERP solution is constructed and presented to the client to confirm project scope and specifications. The prototype serves as the foundation for the final IFS solution.

  3. Establish Solution Phase - During this phase, the team refines, builds, and verifies the customer-specific IFS solution. Data conversion begins, and configurations, reports, and interfaces are developed and modified as needed.

  4. Implement Solution Phase - This phase focuses on bringing the client's expectations for the IFS ERP to reality. The operational readiness of the system is tested, and training and change management begin.

  5. Go Live Phase - The final phase, in which the IFS ERP is launched into operation, replacing any existing systems. The cutover process is executed and the IFS ERP is ready for use.

The IFS Implementation Methodology was developed over many years of implementing IFS software in organizations of all sizes and has been proven to be a reliable guide to a successful IFS project. Astra Canyon Group has the expertise and experience to help you maximize the benefits of IFS ERP and achieve your desired outcome.
