Zanders has a standard approach when implementing a system. It consists of four steps: planning, selection, implementation and maintenance.
In the planning phase we start off with a business case that describes the future organization and the related processes.
A business case provides insight into the impact of any change, costs and benefits as well as project risks associated with a potential implementation. A business case also helps to set priorities for any project and to define requirements relating to a potential selection process.
In the selection phase we look for a system that corresponds to the needs of your organization.
Our independence ensures objective and balanced advice, while our group of consultants has a unique combination of in-depth knowledge of treasury and risk management, along with expertise in various systems used in these areas. In addition to being familiar with system functionality, we are also experts in implementation, potential workarounds and day-to-day use of systems.
With our expertise we are able to professionally evaluate various systems alongside one another and recommend the most appropriate system for your organization.
In the implementation phase we take a pragmatic and project-oriented approach.
Over the years Zanders has developed an effective implementation methodology, which contains not only the most important elements of PRINCE2, but also relevant components drawn from vendors with whom we work regularly on projects.
To support our system implementation practice, we have partnerships with our main vendors.
Through these partnerships we gain access to each vendor’s knowledge base and stay up-to-date on the latest market and vendor developments.
Zanders not only has experienced implementation consultants, but also has interim professionals who can free up key users temporarily for implementation projects.
This enables our clients to concentrate fully on the new organization, without worrying about day-to-day operations. Zanders also has a number of developers at its disposal, making it possible to develop custom enhancements.
In the maintenance phase Zanders is capable of servicing the implemented system.
From time to time suppliers release new and improved versions of their system, including functionality that is important to customers. It could also be that changes in your organization and processes or new regulations require you to adjust the existing configuration of the system.
Also in those cases Zanders can provide the support you need.
