SERVICES > Implementation
And more… whether you require Outlook diary integration, interfacing with third party systems such as Time and Attendance solutions, or Active Directory Single Sign or Data Exchange functionality, our list of implementation services just goes on and on.
A designated project manager will be responsible for the successful deployment and roll-out of your software, to ensure all of your implementation goals are achieved. They’ll become your ‘right hand man’ (or woman!) and will work closely with you to agree and accomplish your project plan, milestones, timescales, responsibilities and deliverables.
We’ll carefully select the most experienced project team for your implementation, depending upon the nature of your organisation, the modules you’ve selected and the sector you operate in, for example. And we’ll recommend who should also be involved from your organisation, based on your system objectives, organisational culture and any anticipated project complexities.
Our HR and payroll software experts will then utilise proven project management processes and procedures, tailored to your business objectives, to ensure your new system is delivered on time and to budget. At no stage will you feel like you’re ‘going it alone’, not even after your software has been fully rolled out.
No matter which category you fall into, it’s our job to help. We don’t want you to struggle at the earliest hurdles after all, plus we have a 100% successful implementation rate to uphold!
When Cascade was awarded the contract to work with Everton Football Club, for example, the project team immediately prepared an implementation and roll out schedule which clearly identified what was required of each party, and when. One of the most complex phases was the collation and cleansing of vast amounts of disparate data, stored in numerous spreadsheets and worse still paper-based records. Locating all of the necessary present and historic information, and putting it all into the right format, was of course challenging for the client. However they understood the importance of getting this right, before the data could be migrated and integrated into their new HR system.
Cascade provided additional help in the form of a data transfer template and expert guidance as to the how best to tackle the various data processes, and the time needed to thoroughly and accurately work through and audit the information. As a result, the transfer was very smooth and the remainder of the project was able to unfold seamlessly. Equally as importantly, Everton’s HR team accumulated the internal skills and competencies required to make long-term optimum use of Cascade, no matter how much the dynamic organisation continues to evolve.
You see, at Cascade, we look to the future. So our implementation methodologies are as forward-thinking as our HR and payroll technologies.
