Our Clients

We engaged Zanovoy via our NetSuite Sales Rep. We had two major problem. We needed to implement NetSuite in rapid time due to an impending cutoff date from our previous owner ERP, and we also need help moving our data from the previous ERP to NetSuite. The Zanovoy team took only two days to understand our business which we were very impressed by and implemented NetSuite in three weeks.  We met our deadline and have since been working with the Zanovoy team on other projects.

Zanovoy’s Approach to a Successful ERP Implementation Process

  • 1

    Step One: Business Requirement Documentation and Process Review

    The first step in any successful NetSuite implementation is to ensure that the business requirements are well understood and documented. This involves working with your team to document and map out your existing processes, as well as understanding your specific business needs and requirements.

    At Zanovoy, we understand it is near impossible to completely define the requirements of an ERP project, and often see priorities change, discover functionality requirements that were missed or identify the need for additional modules or customisations. We work closely with our clients to help them understand the impacts, from a project timeline and cost perspective, to ensure that the benefits of such changes align with the goals of the business.

  • Step Two: System Functionality Design

    Once the requirements are understood, our team will work with you to design a solution that meets your needs, taking into account both NetSuite’s leading practices and your own unique business idiosyncrasies.

    We then create documentation to show how NetSuite will work once configured, including the flow of information and transactions, the data needing to be collected, the reporting and searches that will support your team members in being able to complete tasks, as well as other factors that need to be considered such as approvals and workflow automations.

    Once we are confident that the solution is right for your business we can move into the configuration phase of the implementation.

    2

  • 3

    Step Three: Configuration/ Consultant Build

    Following the design phase, we will work with you to configure NetSuite to meet your specific needs, including setting up custom fields, mapping data, and configuring workflow automation.

    Our NetSuite experts are usually divided into a few key roles:

    Engagement  Manager

    PMs are there to oversee the project plan to ensure tasks are being completed on time, stakeholders understand their responsibilities in the process and are meeting commitments.

    Functional Consultants

    Functional Consultants have a combination of NetSuite functionality expertise as well as a keen understanding of core business processes, such as accounting, project management, operations management, sales processes and manufacturing processes. Often a functional consultant will specialize in a specific discipline, such as accounting. As such, there can be multiple functional consultants on a project team, depending on the type of business and required outcomes.

    Technical Consultants

    TC’s are less involved with configuration and business process planning, and more geared towards technical projects such as customisations, script writing, workflow automations and integrations. Technical consultants are pivotal in the overall implementation as they are able to help the functional consultants align the solution even more closely to your business needs.

  • Step Four: User Acceptance Testing

    Next comes testing – our team will work with you to test the solution in a sandbox environment and correct any errors or process problems before going live. In order to do this thoroughly, Zanovoy provides comprehensive testing scripts for all key business processes and transaction types. We work with your end users to complete these tasks and transactions, and review the impact on the system, such as GL impacts or Reports.

    If and when we identify room for improvement, your consulting team will make the relevant changes to your configuration, and bring the new solution back for retesting. This is an iterative process that continues until your end users are happy and confident that the solution works as intended and meets the needs of the business.

  • 5

    Step Five: End User Employee Training

    Depending on the individual needs of the business and users, we can either offer a “Train the Trainer” approach, or more formal classroom style group training. A train the trainer approach is a powerful way to quickly upskill some key internal champions across various departments and gives your business a resource that is able to help most other users with questions and learning outcomes.

  • Step Six: Data Migration and Data Conversion

    Once everything is ready for go-live, we will work with you to transition your data over to the live environment. We usually advise against attempting to migrate years of old data. In our experience, the cost of data migration projects almost always outweighs the benefits. Most customers keep a single license of their old software to be able to access data when needed, or export this data for future reference.

    6

  • 7

    Step Seven: Go-live

    Going live is always an exciting milestone, but it can also be nerve-wracking. That’s why it’s important to have a solid plan in place for post-launch support. Zanovoy offers a range of services to help you get up and running quickly and smoothly, including training, consulting, and support services.

  • Step Eight: Ongoing Post Go-Live Support

    After go-live we continue to support your internal team, providing ongoing consulting and training as needed to help you get the most out of your new NetSuite system.

    We work with our clients on an ongoing basis to review your processes, provide gap analysis, make recommendations for improvements, and help you implement those changes. This ensures that your NetSuite solution continues to meet your needs as your business grows and evolves.

NetSuite Implementation FAQ’s

1. What is the difference between customization and configuration?

Customization generally refers to changes that are made to the code of the software or using scripts to automate certain processes, while configuration refers to changes that are made to the way the software functions without affecting the code, through configurations and settings.

2. How long does a Successful NetSuite Implementation take?

The length of time required for a NetSuite implementation can vary depending on the size and complexity of your business. Generally speaking, a NetSuite implementation will take anywhere from 3 to 6 months, but can be completed in as little as 100 days.

3. What is the difference between a pilot project and a full implementation?

A pilot is generally a smaller scale version of the full implementation. It is used to test the waters so to speak and see how NetSuite will work for your particular business before fully committing.

4. What is the difference between a cloud and on-premise solution?

A cloud solution is generally hosted by the vendor, in this case, NetSuite or on a 3rd party cloud server, such as AWS or Microsoft Azure. This means that you do not need to worry about maintaining servers or software updates. An on-premise solution is hosted on your own servers.

5. What are the benefits of a NetSuite Implementation?

There are many benefits to implementing NetSuite software, including but not limited to:

  • Improved visibility into business operations
  • Increased efficiencies and productivity
  • Better decision making through real-time data driven insights
  • Lower IT costs

6. How much does a NetSuite Platform Implementation cost?

The cost of a NetSuite implementation can vary depending on the size and complexity of your business. Generally speaking, you can expect to pay anywhere from $30,000 to $200,000 for a NetSuite implementation depending on your industry, modules and user counts.

7. What is the difference between an implementation partner and a reseller?

An implementation partner is a company that specializes in helping businesses implement NetSuite in a specific industry. A reseller is a company that sells NetSuite licenses, but may not complete the implementation themselves.

8. How do I choose the right implementation experts?

There are a few things to consider when choosing an partner, such as:

  • Do they have experience within my industry?
  • Do they have certified consultants on staff?
  • Do they offer support after go-live?

It is important to get a clear understanding of your implementation partners resources, experience and capabilities before making the final decision.

9. What is the difference between an implementation and an upgrade?

An implementation is starting from scratch – meaning you are either implementing NetSuite for the first time or you are replacing your current ERP system with NetSuite. An upgrade is when you are upgrading your existing NetSuite instance to a newer version, or implementing functionality that has become newly available in a NetSuite release.

10. How do I know if I need a new implementation or just an upgrade?

Generally speaking, if you are happy with your current NetSuite solution and are simply looking to take advantage of the latest features and functionality, then an upgrade may be all that is needed. However, if you find that your business has outgrown your current solution or you are no longer satisfied with it, then a new implementation may be necessary.

11. What is the difference between a full-time equivalent (FTE) and a consultant?

A full-time equivalent (FTE) is an employee who works full-time for your company. A consultant is someone who is hired to help with specific projects on a contract basis.

12. How many consultants do I need for my NetSuite Implementation?

The number of consultants you need for your NetSuite implementation will depend on the size and complexity of your business. Zanovoy is a team of functional and technical resources with years of experience implementing NetSuite. We will plan and assign consultants at the commencement of your project, and adapt our resource allocations as required.

13. What skills do I need on my team to be successful?

We have many years of experience in helping clients navigate the NetSuite implementation process. Generally speaking, having subject matter experts for the various departments of your business helps to make the planning process smooth and efficient. Also, having an internal project champion to manage resources on your end can help lead to a more streamlined and organized project.

14. What is the difference between a business analyst and a functional consultant?

A business analyst is responsible for understanding the business requirements and mapping them to NetSuite functionality. A functional consultant is responsible for configuring NetSuite to meet those business requirements.

15. Do I need a project manager for my NetSuite ERP Implementation?

Yes, you will need a PM to help coordinate all of the moving parts of your NetSuite implementation. PM’s act as leaders of the project, and a liaison between the various stakeholders.

16. How do I choose the right PM for my NetSuite ERP Implementation?

When choosing an internal PM for your NetSuite implementation, you will want to consider:

  • Their level of experience in software implementation
  • Their understanding of your core business processes
  • Their ability to manage change
  • Their ability to manage people and resources

17. What does a PM do?

A PM is responsible for coordinating all aspects of your NetSuite implementation, from start to finish. This includes everything from gathering business requirements to overseeing the technical configuration to training users on the new system.

18. What is the difference between a systems integrator and an implementation partner?

A systems integrator is a company that specializes in integrating software applications. An implementation partner is a company that specializes in helping businesses implement NetSuite.

19. How do I choose the right systems integrator for my NetSuite Implementation?

There are a few things to consider when choosing a systems integrator, such as:

  • Do they have certified consultants on staff?
  • Do they offer support after go-live?
  • How many times have they successfully integrated your specific suite of software applications?

This is because NetSuite is a cloud-based solution that can quickly be configured to meet your specific business needs. Additionally, NetSuite implementations typically require less customization than traditional ERP implementations.

Top 10 Systems Challenges for the Life Sciences Industry

,
Zanovoy has been working with Life Sciences companies for over 15 years, and during this time, we have seen a number of key challenges present during implementation as well as after go-live. Below we outline the top 10 challenges that our clients have faced throughout the process and how Zanovoy has solved them.

The ERP Implementation Process Explained

,
While implementing ERP systems, many companies make a common mistake. They assume that a new system will make processes easier when in reality they need to examine their existing processes to determine whether they will improve. For example, many companies overlook processes that are redundant and do not improve the quality of products or services. Reviewing processes and making sure they are still relevant to business objectives will help you ensure that your new ERP is a success.
