Wise Implementation Process
You will be ready for lift off with WIse Consulting by your side during the pre-flight Implementation Process,
To successfully deploy a SaaS solutions for HR, payroll, workforce management, talent management and/or benefits that will work for you today and into the future, you must accurately communicate your unique company requirements. Even if you documented these for your vendor selection project, the implementation team will need very detailed definitions.
The list of items to be defined is lengthy. Pay policies, eligibility rules, organizational structure, taxing jurisdictions, positions, carrier feeds – etc., etc., etc. Some items are fairly straight forward, but most require a level of decision-making that can impact how your system ultimately is accessed throughout the organization and how easily reports can be created.
Wise Consulting has a series of Pre-Analysis Workshops that prepare your team to make decisions confidently.
Step one: Discovery – check!
While the bulk of this task falls onto the vendor side implementation team, being involved and assisting in this step provides you an invaluable opportunity to learn how the system works and prepare for owning it once the implementation is complete. During this phase, Wise assists clients in building out supporting tables (job, position, org, etc.), creating validation reports, documenting configuration options, and more. The system is really starting to come together!
Step two: Configuration – check!
As the implementation team continues with configuration, your team will turn to test case development to prepare for unit and parallel testing. Unit testing refers to an item-by-item review to make sure each component is configured properly and is producing the expected result when tested individually. Further end-to-end and parallel tests will validate whether all of the components are working well together. Both require intensive participation from your team.
Wise Consulting brings comprehensive support to design and develop test cases, coach your team through the unit and parallel testing (or take on the heavy lifting if you are resource challenged), interact with your implementation team for remediation, document results, and provide assurance your system is ready for “go live!”
Step three: Testing – check!
Ensuring both the ‘heavy’ and ‘casual’ users are ready when the system is launched requires planning, a lot of communication, and perfect timing. By coordinating with your internal training department and making the most of your vendor’s available training options, the Wise team will fill in any gaps in content or delivery for your chosen training path.
Step four: Training – check!
Hold up! Before you can go live with your new system, data from your legacy solution will be mapped and converted over. Depending upon timing, this may include quarter and year-to-date balances. Validating all data is critical. Failure to balance “to the penny” to your old system and tax returns could be devastating. Just one more thing on the “to do” list! By partnering with Wise Consulting, we will guide you through the process, leaving you feeling confident and very well educated about your new system.
