A successful Certinia implementation depends on thorough consultation. Not just one consultation, but consultation throughout the implementation process. At VFP Consulting, our experts use our company motto “Vision. Focus. Passion” as a North Star to guide the project safely to its final destination: a cloud PSA / ERP that benefits our clients, their customers, employees and stakeholders. The journey to an integrated cloud-based business management system starts here.
During the planning phase, we clarify our customers’ vision, identify Certinia solution implementations that will achieve their goals and formalize a project and communication plan. We’ll also identify key knowledge-holders in your business that can provide details about processes, operations and the current form of process and data management.
We identify the strengths and weaknesses of current business processes, data recording methods, and gaps in processes. At this stage, interviews and meetings will be held between VFP staff and your key staff. We’ll get to know, in detail, what information is recorded, where it is stored and who accesses it. We create a new business process map and identify which Certinia PSA/ERP solutions should be implemented to achieve the company’s goals.
We export and/or convert data from current records and ready it for import into Certinia and Salesforce.
With our expert knowledge of both Certinia and Salesforce, in-depth experience with both platforms’ offerings, and knowledge of business processes, we create user-centric implementations that follow industry best practices, but more importantly, fit your business. We ensure your implementation works for you now and will grow or change as your business grows and changes.
Throughout the implementation process, we test and retest, ensuring everything works as it should. VFP uses RADTest, a programmatic method of testing each piece of the business processes puzzle. RADTest helps ensure watertight, bug-free, gap-free implementation that works…every time!
Deployment may occur in stages or when all data and all Certinia solutions have been implemented. After deployment, we do post-deployment checks to ensure your Certinia PSA/ERP implementation is functioning as it did in testing. After go-live, we don’t leave you hanging, either. When you need help, we’re here for you.
Habits are formed by doing something every day, and we think that is an essential can’t-live-without-it part of the job at VFP. We make excellence our habit. So you know you can count on us to look out for you and deliver the best.
Think of the Salesforce platform as a smartphone that can run multiple apps. It allows you to add other applications to support other parts of your organization, such as products from Certinia. Certinia products are 100% native to the Salesforce platform, which means you have a single source of truth for your organizational data like customers and products. With your financials, PSA and CRM on the same platform, there’s no need to integrate separate systems.
No, you can use Certinia without implementing Salesforce applications. Certinia licenses will include the Salesforce platform, but without access to the Salesforce applications such as Sales Cloud, Marketing Cloud, and Service Cloud.
The length of time it takes to implement Certinia depends on many factors, including the complexity of processes, how much data is being migrated (if any), and the number of Certinia solutions being implemented. Implementation can take anywhere from a couple of months to several months.
Certinia offers ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions that can be implemented separately or simultaneously. The Certinia applications include Financials, Billing, Revenue Management, and Professional Services Automation (PSA). View Certinia applications.
Yes. During the user-acceptance phase (close to the end of implementation), we train key staff members to use Certinia. Trainees will become familiar with processes, features, and tools.
It’s impossible to provide an “average” price that is meaningful, because each company and its needs are unique. Suffice it to say, that the more complex your business’s processes and the more Certinia solutions that need to be implemented to meet your implementation goals, the higher the cost. A consultation is the only way we are able to estimate the cost of implementation to your company. Book a free consultation today!
