Implementation/Integration

Replicon provides users with a six-phase implementation process:

  • Define – In this phase, the client and Replicon’s implementation project manager discuss the client’s business, as well as its needs, challenges and goals for the software, and a deployment strategy.
  • Configure and integrate – Replicon works on migrating data and processes from the client’s existing system, along with customizing its solution and integrating any third-party applications.
  • Train – Replicon designs a training program that fits the client’s needs, such as train-the-trainer, online training or role-specific end-user training.
  • Acceptance test – In this phase, testers can “play in the sandbox,” that is, test the Replicon solution to find issues or errors before going live.
  • Deploy – The solution is deployed into a live environment and all end users can start to use it.
  • Success criteria – This phase is a final checkup to make sure everything’s running smoothly. Replicon then transitions the client to a dedicated Customer Service Manager for customer support.

Replicon offers two implementation packages based on company size:

  • Plus – Configurable options and rules for medium-sized businesses with standard requirements.
  • Enterprise – Customizable options and rules, and global support for large customers.
