DATASCOPE Business Model
DATASCOPE Project Management
The key to the successful implementation of any WMS solution is a professional implementation methodology. The best software implemented poorly will give a poor result. At DATASCOPE we have developed a very strong implementation methodology to ensure that the projects we deliver are professional.
Every project includes twenty-five key steps grouped together in 7 main phases. All projects are implemented in accordance with this methodology and all projects are audited after they go-live to ensure that the methodology was followed.
Within this methodology, we have the following key sign off milestones. These sign off are foundational to the project success:
- Proposal sign-off – project initiation
- Functional Specification – this detailed document defines the project scope and deliverables
- UAT (User Acceptance Test) – this workshop showcases the software in operation on the client’s data
- Training sign-off – an agreement to key training completion
- Dry Run – final test of key processes just before go-live
- Go-Live sign-off – full project team agreement that all is ready to go live
- Project sign-off – after handholding. an agreement that the projects complete
DATASCOPE University (DSU)
DATASCOPE has implemented a very comprehensive on-line training university which is shared with our DSP’s (DATASCOPE Partners) and key customers. This university includes eleven main courses that are broken down into sections and subsections. The format of the training is very “hands-on”. Most content is explained in videos and diagrams that are easy to understand.
At DATASCOPE we understand that our client implementations are only as good as their knowledge of our software. We strive to create an environment where the staff is able to grow their knowledge of the software and to then implement more functions and features.
The DSU is a living system. As new modules are developed and as current modules are enhanced the DSU is updated to disseminate the knowledge to our partners and customers.
DATASCOPE Solution Partners (DSP)
DATASCOPE is committed to building a professional distribution network across the world. This network is known as the DATASCOPE DSP’s – DATASCOPE Solution Partners.
Each partner is very carefully selected by DATASCOPE. They will normally be a smaller team of professional SYSPRO or warehousing experts – often both. DATASCOPE then give a full commitment to each new partner for one year. During this year we would complete two or three implementations with the first implementation being run by DATASCOPE with the new DSP staff doing a lot of the day to day work. The second implementation normally sees the DSP taking a lead on the project with DATASCOPE involved heavily in all project meetings and the third project is run by the DSP with some input from DATASCOPE.
All functional specifications are completed in tandem with DATASCOPE resources. We ensure that what is designed for the client is the best solution we can offer.
As is the case in all aspects of the DATASCOPE business each DSP is audited annually by DATASCOPE and a rating system is updated. It is our vision to share these ratings in time with prospective clients.
