BPE Global can assist you with project definition and strategy development:
All successful software implementations depend on thorough business process analysis and requirements definition. With BPE Global, the first step requires a clear understanding of your business and what you expect to happen not only from the software but from a holistic view that spans from your company culture to the company’s bottom line. This phase begins with discovery and then develops into strategy so that we focus on building the best solution for your company and its employees.
BPE Global will ensure that a clear plan is in place that defines the following aspects of the implementation:
BPE Global will assist with system design and configuration:
BPE Global brings the experience to assess a company’s organization and process flows. We look for opportunities to consolidate and streamline procedures that are no longer efficient. After the definition phase, we follow your global trade strategy as a foundation and begin to build the system implementation. In the Design / Configuration phase, BPE Global creates the system configuration specifications and process maps. BPE Global has many years of software integration experience working with data migration and integration tools as well as various standards such as EDI, XML, ABI, and flat file formats. The key to this phase is to not overcomplicate the implementation but to provide your company with creative solutions and a proof of concept.

BPE Global will assist with Implementation:
BPE Global provides an implementation plan that results in the least disruption and highest value to your company. The migration of data from one or more legacy systems into the new database is an integral part of every implementation project. Whether straight-forward or complex, BPE Global is prepared to work with your technical personnel to develop a solid strategy for converting your data for use with the new system. In this phase, we will begin testing the system with test scripts based on your daily operations and historical data. BPE Global feels it’s imperative that key employees be involved with the testing process. By giving these ‘super users’ ownership in the process, company training and deployment will roll out smoothly. This phase involves the following critical areas:
BPE Global will assist with Deployment:
BPE Global uses a phased approach to deploying any new software platform to mitigate deployment risks of a potential shut down of your business if something goes wrong. To ensure a seamless transition from your legacy system(s) to your new Global Trade Management solution, employees will receive full support and dedicated resources during the deployment. It is imperative that each group is running smoothly with the new application before moving to the next phase of deployment. BPE Global’s strategy is to deploy the system with a risk based methodology beginning with low volume or low risk areas of your business. The final step is to compare the results against key measures of success to ensure you are receiving maximum benefits from the solution.
BPE Global will assist with maintenance and/or support:
BPE Global provides an optional service assisting in the support of your Global Trade Management solution on an ongoing basis through on-going training, day-to-day operations and additional implementation phases.
New software enhancements and features will require a minimal but mandatory amount of effort to integrate. BPE Global can act as a cross functional team for your company and quickly determine which employees, processes and customers will be impacted by a new feature in the software.
