Your challenges:

What's bothering you now?

  • anaptis

    Double data storage

    Unconnected systems mean double, if not triple, data storage. The effort is unnecessarily large and it is not uncommon for careless mistakes and delays to occur. An annoying mess! By using one system, data collection is only centered in one place.

  • anaptis

    Manual processes

    Unconnected systems also require the manual initiation of processes. For example, you yourself have to check meticulously whether the inventory is still sufficient to fulfil future orders. Exhausting how much you have to think about! With our integrated solutions, you can receive recommendations for repeat orders at this point or even automate processes completely.

  • anaptis

    Insufficient reporting

    Moreover, unconnected systems can only provide cumbersome and meaningful reports. Thus, many of our customers have used Excel to consolidate various data sources before using our solutions in order to obtain key figures with added value. With our solutions (e.g. NAV standard, Microsoft Power BI) this effort is completely eliminated.

    Security

    Our customers have sometimes had to deal with disturbing security gaps before working with us. With Dynamics 365, however, it is possible to precisely determine access rights and ensure compliance with the genral data protection regulation (GDPR).

This is how

your personal ERP implementation with us starts.

In the following, we outline the typical path to your personal software implementation offer. First: We distance ourselves from 1) tempting cheap offers with expensive subsequent costs and 2) fast and general offers.

Openness and transparency are important values for us. We want to communicate honestly and at eye level with you and not make our money through “hidden” costs. It is also important to us that you receive a solution that fits your company exactly and that you know exactly what you will be facing in the course of the project. So, in order for us to achieve a realistic quote for your ERP implementation project, some time and effort is required from both sides.

It’s important to note: Not every ERP implementation project is the same. This depends, among other things, on the know-how on the customer’s side and the size of the company. Accordingly, we adapt the process individually.

Step 1: Non-binding inquiry
You express your interest in an ERP implementation project with us by phone or by mail. Just as you like. Tell us about your project or the challenges you would like to tackle in your company.
Step 2: Qualification of the request
Our team takes a close look at your request. If we are already sure that we can help you, someone from our pool of experts will get in touch. Who comes forward depends on the area of your inquiry. So that we can put you directly in touch with the right person, we first need some information about your specific project (e.g. implementation, upgrade) and about your company (e.g. size, number of users).

If your request does not include all relevant information, we will contact you to fully qualify the request. If we are not the right contact and/or the software is not the right tool for your project, we will tell you this honestly at this point.
Step 3: Initial consultation
In a non-binding, first conversation we get to know each other and both have the chance to check if the chemistry between us is right.

We ask some detailed questions about the project. We also talk about required resources such as budget and time frame. Personnel capacities on your side are also an important topic. Why? In addition to their regular day-to-day business, employees in all relevant areas must work with the solution provider, test functions, learn how to use the application, and provide feedback. The attitude needs to be right at this point and employees need to be able to engage with the project.

If after the initial consultation you think that the chemistry is right and we are also convinced to implement your requirements as desired, we will proceed with a presentation or workshop. Gladly combined with a personal meeting.
Step 4: Presentation
The presentation (gladly personally) takes place with us regularly from both sides with several people:

- Customer: involved persons and decision makers
- Vendor: Sales/managing director and your future project manager.

The conversation will focus on our product selection as well as our approach. We look at the software solution Dynamics 365 Business Central including relevant add-ons together. If you have demo data, please send it to us in advance and we will prepare a customized presentation. This allows us to address your individual questions and wishes. Based on this appointment, a first, very rough estimate of the costs is possible. We can be even more precise only after the conception in the context of the prologue.

If you continue to signal your interest afterwards, we will continue with the detailed concept or offer.
Step 5: Prologue
Now things are really getting underway. The conception of the project is coming up.

In order to get from a rough cost estimate to a detailed offer, we need your detailed requirements. To do this, we make use of user stories, among other things, which follow the scheme: "In order to have this benefit, I would like to be able to do this as a user". We define these together.

The result of the prologue is a list of all tasks and a budget to be assigned for them. Thereby the tasks get a classification (must-have, nice-to-have) with influence on the budget usage.
Step 6: Offer
After the prologue, we evaluate the user stories and use them to put together the offer (monetary and time expenditure). This is how you get your individual ERP implementation concept.

The project team, individually assembled for your requirements, defines all necessary functionalities and tasks for the software development for a coherent period of time. This results in individual tasks, which are brought into an evaluation system by calculation.

Afterwards, it is up to you to decide whether you want to tackle the ERP implementation project with us. If you accept, we will start the ERP implementation project together according to our anaptis project methodology.
FAQs:

Your questions about the ERP introduction.

  • For which companies is Dynamics 365 Business Central suitable?

    Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is basically suitable for small and medium-sized companies in any industry. Even the standard version includes all business areas such as finance, CRM, supply chain, warehouse, personnel, projects, production and service. This makes the software stand in contrast to highly specialized industry solutions.

  • How long does it take to set up Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central?

    Setting up the cloud solution
    The time it takes to set up your cloud depends on various parameters:

    Task Duration
    Providing the online solution Few minutes
    Setup of the Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) environment
    new user accounts or transfer/synchronization of the local Active Directory accounts for easier administration
    Time for coordination and execution (very individual)
    Adoption of extensions Time for coordination and execution (very individual)

    Deployment of the online version of Dynamics 365 Business Central takes only a few minutes. Then it depends on whether we should support and accompany you during the introduction.

    If you want us to do so, you should first consider the Microsoft 365 environment that may already be set up for you. If this environment is not yet available, we should discuss with you before setting up Dynamics 365 Business Central whether we should take over this environment for you and under what conditions (new user accounts or takeover/synchronization of the local Active Directory accounts for easier administration). This may then take further time.

    Furthermore, it must be agreed in advance whether and which useful extensions will be included in the system (e.g. a module for the “Wage & Salary” area or a module in the production area). Also the installation of such extensions requires time for coordination and execution.
    We should therefore work out together in advance what is to be done in concrete terms.

    Setting up the on-premise solution
    More time must be planned for the setup of the on-premise (local) components, since the necessary server systems (database, application, etc.) must be provided. No more concrete statements are to be made here, since this must always be individually coordinated with you.

  • Is the ERP solution set up on site or online?

    Both. Usually we hold the kick-off meeting or larger arrangements face-to-face. If the circumstances do not allow it otherwise, we also like to make a video call.

    Otherwise, your contact person will accompany you during the setup by phone in connection with TeamViewer, by e-mail and by means of short webinars or screen-sharing sessions.

  • Are there any special costs for the setup?

    Yes – if we are to support and accompany you during the introduction. In view of the above mentioned dependencies (online or local, server available and ready), a flat-rate evaluation of the costs incurred is not possible. This must be worked out together with you.

  • Can we import existing data?

    Yes, master data can usually be imported without any problems. Microsoft offers the simple upgrade service “RapidStart” for this purpose.

  • Do I need programming knowledge for the setup?

    No. All settings and setup steps can be made via the user interface. Our team will support you step by step and answer all your questions, if desired.

  • Do I get a permanent contact person?

    Yes, as a new customer you will have a permanent contact person who will support you in the installation of our products and will also be available afterwards to answer all your questions. This is exactly what our customers benefit from, in contrast to larger providers. After all, our project managers usually know their customers for many years and are often able to support or look ahead with an objective point of view.

  • Which project method do you use?

    We have created our own anaptis method from the advantages of the classic and agile approach.

    Further information:
    Site on project methodology

  • Do you provide guidance on change management?

    Yes. For us, digital transformation involves technology, processes and above all people. So you should definitely not leave your employees out in the cold.
    We bring our own expertise and work together with the Münster Startup Echometer. The company has set itself the goal of making software implementations smoother through regular employee feedback. If you are interested, you can simply add this to your booking.

  • Do you also consult on hardware?

    Yes, we advise existing customers on their IT infrastructure. Since our team consists of developers and system administrators, we can advise on our core product software as well as hardware.

  • Do you also advise on process optimization?

    Of course. We do this automatically in every project, as we strive to transfer the optimal current status of business processes into the software.

    It has also happened that we have only analyzed the processes of a company or a department and have highlighted suggestions for improvement – i.e. without the software reference. Of course, it is possible or advisable to do the realization together afterwards.
