Companies face a variety of challenges. International markets must be served adequately, customers with an international presence need standardized services from one point of contact, products and business workflows have to be integrated when companies are acquired, and new branches must be built up in growth markets.
To increase productivity and profits and shorten response times, business targets and processes must be continually adapted.
The IT landscape plays an important role in this perspective, because it can boost or impede business management processes.
It is especially important in sales and services for complex products, such as vehicles, machinery and equipment, for company-wide processes to be standardized, data harmonized, and systems consolidated. This creates flexible IT landscapes that grow with the business.
Rollout in the relevant national and international business units presents a particular challenge, because ultimately the individual employees must actively use the application in order to achieve the desired effect.
How are the different requirements (local, global) taken into account?
Which tasks will be centralized?
How are processes segmented?
Who is responsible for which sub-processes?
Who is responsible for the quality and management of the master data?
How is the customer hierarchy structured?
How can different products be integrated into one system?
What kind of data will be available and where?
How is the master data distributed?
Which systems must be discontinued and potentially replaced?
It is also critical to moderate the interests of individual organizational units and implement global standardizations quickly. Not least, your employees play an important role with their cultural background and the specific requirements at their workplace. It is necessary to involve them early and provide training.
Rollout projects require an overview of the entire business, insight into the individual functions, a neutral point of view, methodical approach, and complete concentration on the project.
