Every aspect of your IT Strategy will need to be kept under review and upgrades will be required periodically, along with deciding which specialist you partner with to deliver the improvements upgrading any aspect of your wider infrastructure, should return.
Deploying the same careful planning as any new installation and implementation Qi will take the time to understand and document the status quo. An upgrade should never result in the loss of required functionality, data or bespoke reports. The process includes confirmation that any upgrade is compatible with the rest of your IT infrastructure and that areas of concern are defined, and appropriate recommendations made.
Upgrades are usually implemented for two key reasons. The first is to access new features that return an immediate benefit and is a choice proactively made. The second is often a decision customers feel ‘forced’ to make, influenced by changes in the technological or legislative landscape. We want you to share with us your reasons for upgrading so that we understand fully what you expect an upgrade to achieve for your business..
SCOPING AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT
Upgrading any aspect of your IT infrastructure, by definition, whether welcomed or otherwise, should return a series of benefits. Qi will work with you to explore the varying levels of benefits that any upgrade could offer whilst taking into account your wider business plan. The agreed areas of improvement will be documented and agreed as part of the Qi Projects process.
REALISTIC, DEFINED, TIMEFRAME
Any upgrade should be delivered with the minimum of intrusion to usual business. Part of the Qi Projects process is to define and agree a suitable time frame which will include the necessary preparation, data testing, installation, training and Go Live support. We work in the ‘real world’ and understand that business as usual must be carefully factored in to your upgrade project. Most projects can be delivered using only remote services in these uncertain times.
"We had worked with Qi for a number of years already before opting to migrate from Sage 50 to Dynamics 365 Business Central. The success and disruption to business of a project of this magnitude is always a massive concern. Qi managed the project efficiently and sympathetically resulting in a highly successful, manageable project."
