Introduction

We hope that you have been able to select a suitable vendor. If so, congratulations! If you need to continue to look for a vendor that suits your needs, make sure to take your time and don’t take hasty decisions.

In this next and final part of our email course we’d like to help you prepare for what’s next, enabling you to get through the upcoming implementaion fase as smoothly as possible! Good luck!

1. The next important step in the process

Once you’ve decided on the system that will help you with your HR processes, you’ve completed the first major step in the procurement process.

This is where the work really starts, as you’ll be making sure that the implementation of your system proceeds smoothly and ensures that your company can make a start with it as soon as possible.

2. Gather a project team

Before you can start with any system implementation, you need to ensure that you have the right people on board your implementation project team. Depending on the size and structure of your organisation, sometimes a small team will suffice. In larger organisations you’ll need to make sure to involve the right people with the right professional backgrounds.

 

  • Having an HR responsible on board in the implementation team is vital, you’ll want to make sure that the processes in the system are created in such a way that they are well aligned with the way things are done right now.
  • An IT responsible will be able to ask the right questions from the solution provider when it comes to certain different aspects such as security.
  • A team manager will eventually be using the system, and needs to be able to evaluate if the system provides the right tools and functionalities to perform his/her duties on a daily basis.
  • Any company needs a smooth and uninterrupted payroll process. Having a payroll responsible as part of your team ensures that there will not be any hiccups in the payment of salaries.

3. Plan together with your vendor

Together with your vendor you should plan a common project start meeting in which you can agree on the important steps in the process. This gives you and your project team the opportunity to go through the project and agree on the steps that will need to be taken. Make sure to agree on a clear deadline for specific tasks, so you can make sure that your implementation project will stay within the promised timeframe and on budget.

Once everything is in place, you are ready to start your implementation project and turn it into a great success! Would you like to gain inspiration on how to plan the perfect implementation process? Make sure to sign up for our next email course here>>
