Your successful ERP project according to the anaptis project methodology.


You know full well: an ERP project touches business-critical processes in your company. This requires a deep trust in the supporting partner. Our proven methodology is based on numerous software projects, realized according to classical approaches or agile ones like Scrum. In our experience, it achieves quality as well as risk minimization in equal measure. Our anaptis project methodology is unique and recommendable.

anaptis project methodology:

This is how we implement your project.

The starting point for the following process description is the following: You have accepted our offer, which we have submitted to you, for example, as part of your ERP implementation inquiry and previously worked out together. Now we start together and make your company better. See here what you can expect in the course of the project.

STEP 1: Planning the implementation (Planning Meeting)
Now the detailed planning of the implementation of your project takes place. We focus on these questions:
- When does the project start?
- What tasks are to be implemented?
- How many sprints will there be?
- When is the go-live planned? Is there a deadline?
You probably know sprints only in sports terms. In our field, however, it refers to agile software development. Our teams regularly work in one-month sprints (the teams decide on the cycles). This means that the planning of these sprints takes place on a regular monthly basis. In this sprint planning, the upcoming sprint is planned. The basis for the planning are the previously defined user stories.
At the end, you will be asked to approve the implementation plan.
STEP 2: Implementation and testing of the requirements
Let's go! Our developers are waiting in the wings for you! After the release of the implementation plan, the implementation phase begins. This consists of an individual number of sprints. We implement the agreed requirements from the previous phases step by step. Reliably and transparently. Finally, unfinished tasks are transferred to the next implementation phase.
An important part of the implementation are the regular review meetings with you at the end of the sprint. Either in person or as a conference call. Theoretically, we can present the new features to you every month, after each sprint. Practically, depending on the project type, a demo takes place at regular intervals according to your wishes. This gives you the time to give feedback right from the start and to put the features through their paces as well as to approve them. And we can quickly and easily make corrections before the big picture goes in the wrong direction. Because the functions that are not accepted are carried over into the next sprint. As you can see: For you, the ERP project also means work. This is the only way we can achieve the best result together.
Transparency is important to us: If you change the requirements during the implementation phase, this logically leads to a new evaluation of the budget usage.
STEP 3: Acceptance
In a final meeting, our goal is one thing: happy customers who accept the project.
Ideally, the final acceptance is just a formality, because your key users have already tirelessly tested all functionalities during the implementation of the requirements. Nevertheless, before we actually go live, i.e. put the new system into operation, a final check should be performed by your employees. This way, experience shows that the go-live is smooth and hardly affects the daily work of your employees.
STEP 4: Go-Live
The day of truth: After we have worked through all the requirements together, the go-live follows. Finally, the software is put into operation!
Experience shows that a lot of feedback is received at this point, because despite the conscientious testing, many things only become apparent when the software is used intensively by all users. This is quite normal. A certain time for this feedback we therefore already consider in our planning.
STEP 5: Support
We don't throw you in at the deep end. Even after the development phase, we are there for you! You keep your fixed contact person who knows your project like no other. The advantage of this: We work not only reactively, but also proactively. We are at your side if you need support, have a question or if further new requirements arise over time. If you wish, we can also train your employees in the use of the system.

How do I get my employees excited about the project?

Successfully master change management and increase your employees' acceptance of the new software solution already during the project.
