The Acclogic Strategic Consulting 11-Step Odoo Implementation Process
Odoo Implementation Process
We maintain efficiency and consistency with every company we work with to achieve their business objectives. A reliable and repeatable business process is key to a successful ERP Implementation Project.
Working with Acclogic means you have a clear vision and understanding of the entire journey towards having your company run at peak performance.
We follow an 11 step process in order to ensure your Odoo Integration Project maintains transparency, efficiency, and accuracy.
Steering Meetings with Acclogic Project Management and your Stakeholder Team will be held weekly throughout the duration of the project to review high level progress, challenges, budget and when business decisions have to be made.
Selected employees of the company chosen by the client are given an in-depth survey to analyze the scope, needs, and functionality of your company.
Acclogic Project Management Team conducts interviews with appropriate stakeholders of your company regarding the requirements of your project. We work with you to capture the design and intent of your project. The specifications and requirements must be documented and discussed.
Every project begins with explicit project requirements in order to disambiguate the objectives.
Legacy Data Review
Should legacy data sets exist, we will work with you to categorize, analyze, and fully comprehend the structure of your data so that we can properly integrate your data into Odoo. Any customer, vendor, inventory, employee, or product and service records must be identified, both structurally and contextually through an Extract, Transform & Loan (ETL) Process.
The relationships between your data sets are mapped and fully understood. This entails exactly how your data travels and transforms. Where your data is recorded and where/how it needs to be used must be fully understood and visually represented so that we can properly pinpoint the modules required to satisfy the needs of your project and system.
Analysis and identification of the structure and functionality of every data set that needs to be imported is integral for a complete and accurate implementation.
Modules Required for Implementation
Upon full comprehension of the requirements and data of the project, Acclogic presents a list of the Odoo modules required to achieve the business objectives of your Odoo Implementation Project.
Upon acceptance of the list, we will progress to the next step. Adding and removing modules in the future is easy to do with Odoo.
