We offer a variety of implementation approaches tailored to the circumstances and experience of your team. Certain activities are Core (depending on your overall scope and current systems).

We will then kick off your implementation process with the Discovery Phase which covers:
 Project planning

 Familiarisation demo to key project personnel
 Development of Test Strategy

Training

How the training service works
Training of system administrator and key users is a fundamental part of Felber Consulting's implementation approach - as we move through the different phases (Discovery, Configuration, Test, Deployment & Go-Live) with workshops for familiarisation and business scenario testing, as well as further user training in Test & Go-Live phases.

In general, we support a Train the Trainer approach, but we also provide useful collateral for the project team to create their own tailored training material.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
We provide quality assurance testing. A nominated person (not involved with the engagement) goes through a schedule of tests to ensure everything is set up correctly and coherent with user requirements.

We support the buyer's testing throughout the implementation through a series of structured scenario tests. Initial session are 'happy day' scenarios that reflect day-to-day operations and then increasing introduce more challenging occurrences that provide more realistic aspects of the operation.

We provide templates and sample scenarios to provide quick start collateral and support.
