Kiteview Project Management
Project Management – the basis of successful IT solution implementation
Kiteview provides a project management service for our own implementations and additionally for larger projects where one of our solutions forms part of a larger whole. Our project managers are trained and experienced, and with many projects completed in South Africa, we have the track record to prove it.
To keep track of our projects we use the MARI Projects application that is fully integrated with our internal financial business management system. MARI provides the resources to plan, schedule and control projects. We recognize that Project Management is central to the successful implementation of any of our solutions. We continuously improve our project management skills through regular training and interaction between our project management teams.
The following processes define the course of the project
- Identify and establish Project Managers, Team Leaders, Stakeholders and participants
- Identifying key changes in operations and suggesting process changes
- Compile detailed needs analysis and Specification of Requirements
- Formulate a Project Review Document with detailed Project Plan, phasing, system design diagram, major configuration settings and responsibilities
- Schedule regular Project Meetings / Steering Committee Meetings in which Weekly Task lists and Time Summary will be reviewed
- Implementation of Project Plan and training schedule, which for Pastel Evolution could include:
- Initial Data Conversion
- Super-User Training and Piloting
- End-User Training and Piloting
- Final Data Conversion
- First Month End
- Identify post-implementation support requirements (snag list) and a necessary plan of action if required
- Handover to Pastel Support Desk and commencement of optional Service Level Agreement.
Kiteview Consulting and Implementation
Consulting and implementation – the basis of what makes your business work
We are passionate about what we do, and take pride in implementing software in a professional, competent way that minimizes inconvenience to our customers and allows them to gain a return on their investment as quickly as possible. One of our most important criteria for staff recruitment is a high sense of responsibility. People who care about our customers and will go to any lengths to resolve their problems are the foundation that Kiteview is built on, and the cornerstone of our implementations.
But there is no substitute for experience, and every implementation has the direct involvement of one of our directors or senior consultants. At a senior level within the company we have over 20 years’ experience in implementing financial software at small and medium-sized companies, and this involvement ensures not only that the highest levels of service are provided, but also that the most efficient solutions within the software are found.
Our experience also enables us to work with you to re-engineer your business processes, to change the way you do business to make you more efficient, and more profitable. We strive to add value beyond the software we are implementing, and take pride in automating business processes as far as possible.
As an early adopter of Sage Evolution, we have an in-depth understanding of the product, augmented by our prior experience in products based on equivalent technologies. We are determined to ensure that every site is a reference site.
We will not sell where there is not a close fit, and are convinced of our ability to provide a superior implementation where there is.
