Introduction Odoo and B-informed
You have chosen Odoo as the ERP system, but it still has to be implemented. How does the implementation Odoo work, and what needs to be taken into account? Below we will explain the Odoo implementation process and what it involves. All this according to our B-informed principles.
As an introduction, we start with an introductory meeting to identify your wishes and needs. In addition, we give an extensive demo to get to know Odoo and familiarize yourself with the system. When the demo shows that it suits your wishes and needs, we will carry out a proof of concept (POC) together with you. This will show you what is possible for your company when you start working with Odoo. Finally, an extensive offer is made and discussed with you.
Proof of Concept and
Project Initiation Document
At the PoC we work with you to determine the objectives and plans for the organization. What are the ambitions and expectations and how can B-informed help you with this. To get a good picture, the vision, strategy and operational goals are included.
A Project Initiation Document (PID) is drawn up on the basis of the PoC. This will state what the scope of the project is, what the risks are, what planning will be followed and what the final budgeting is.
Components of the PID are:
introduction and objectives
Scope / module set (MoSCoW)
Expected adjustments and customization (MoSCoW)
Project scope and principles
Project approach and organization
Project planning with (critical) milestones
Points of attention
The PID follows the primary business processes, parameters and settings. This is a dynamic document that can change based on progressive insight during implementation.
Implementation of Odoo
The agile method is used to implement the different modules. This means that approximately one module is developed per sprint. A sprint will take about 2-3 weeks.
When a module has been developed, it is extensively tested. When it appears to work after the tests, this module will go live. This is how we ultimately build an ERP system module by module.
During this process we will always arrange it in such a way that the business continuity is not jeopardized!
Evaluation and after live support
After the first weeks it is good to evaluate. Where are the processes running smoothly and as expected and where can we optimize them or make them run smoother in Odoo. Functionally, small improvements can lead to more user-friendliness, which users will enjoy for years. The project progress and points for improvement are also evaluated.
During the period of going live and the immediate period afterwards, maximum support will guide the organization through the start-up phase. This phase generally lasts 2 weeks. After this, any problems will have surfaced and solved for the most part.
Going live is just one moment of the collaboration. Now that everything is implemented and live, there will always be optimization options. In this process we will guide you and look together at what is important and where optimizations are possible to continuously improve the business process.
