Benefits

  • The methodology that guarantees the successful implementation of the ERP system.

Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step enables you to control the whole implementation process and all the related expenses. Sure Step involves several phases which can be monitored by the customer.

  • Process flow monitoring

MS Dynamics Sure Step requires the provider to identify the customer’s needs in detail. Typically, if an organisation is implementing a system for the first time, the customer is not able to pinpoint the critical issues.

  • Transparent planning and communication

The methodology helps you to plan the tasks and duties for various project team members. If the plans and task assignment is transparent, project communication is much more efficient.

ERP system implementation is a complex project. It requires commitment, proficiency as well as organised and methodological approach. To deliver such an important undertaking successfully, the implementation methodology is required. We at Locus IT always deliver our implementation projects in compliance with Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step methodology.
