Ceridian Implementation Process

You will be ready for lift off with WIse Consulting by your side during the Implementation Process,



Our Pre-Analysis Workshops are a critical step in preparing your team for the Ceridian Discovery meetings. Workshop activities identify potential complexities and opportunities to streamline. This creates a solid foundation.


Project Management

Your Wise project manager will partner with Ceridian to understand the assignments and deadlines associated with the client-side tasks. Internal resources will be rallied and supported to complete tasks efficiently and on time. 



As the Configuration progresses, Wise will help you maintain accurate documentation to serve as a reference for future upgrade testing or when organizational changes require configuration modification.



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.

In addition, we interact with your implementation team for remediation, document results and provide assurance your system is ready for “go live!” 



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.



Go Live!

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 in the right direction, leaving you feeling confident and very well educated about your new system.
