IPLAN

is global

We work at our Client’s locations directly with our client’s personnel. For us, it’s personal.

iPlan’s icon symbolizes a globe

because we work all over the world.

We have a track record of projects in the United States, the UK, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, the whole of South Africa and African countries Uganda, Namibia, Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi and the Congo.

Our relationship with iPlan started in 2017 when they assisted us with developing a Common Vision Business Process Blueprint for our operations in the US (principal sales organization and Global management) and the Philippines (principal manufacturing organization) with respect to the implementation of our Global ERP system on Microsoft Dynamics 365. We required significant support from iPlan as we did not have system development and implementation experience within our organization. We also required a strong disciplined project management support team. iPlan met both of these needs. Additionally, at iPlan’s encouragement, we have monthly Steering Committee update meetings/calls to discuss progress, address issues, and develop suggestions for continued success.

“Their process was well organized and within a few months we developed a Blueprint that would guide our ERP implementation in the United States as well as ensure a coordinated effort with our wholly owned Philippine subsidiary who was working with a Philippine based consultant. Our implementation started in February 2018 and by August we went live. Throughout the implementation stage, iPlan worked closely with our teams in the United Sates and the Philippines – both on-site and remote – to mitigate the issues that typically occur in an ERP project. iPlan also assisted the Philippine based consultant in resolving issues and developing alternative strategies to meet our world-wide objectives.

“Post-implementation, iPlan has continued to work closely with us via a Service Level Support Agreement to ensure the ERP system continues to meet our needs. As Microsoft updates the software, iPlan has played a critical role in ensuring any customization that we have made to the software continues to operate as designed.”

iPlan ensure real-world success by integrating Processes, People and Systems in a unified methodology.

Client quote: “The SYSPRO implementation at APL Cartons was a three-month project facilitated by iPlan.  It was the third system upgrade in the 25 year history of APC Cartons and definitely the most successful when considering the short implementation time and the relatively few problems with Go-live.  The primary reasons for the success of this project were the appointment of a full-time project team consisting of APL as well as iPlan personnel, and the high level of effort and commitment demonstrated by this project team.”  –  Mr. Pieter Liebenberg IT Manager

Assessment & Scoping

iPlan help Clients determine strategy, scope and charters for business system projects.

Assessment

An iPlan professional provides a quick, inexpensive, high-level assessment to help a Client set up a business system strategy.

iPlan assess current systems in the context of business strategy, best practice processes and the people organization; and present our findings without bias and honest recommendations based on our years of experience.

Scoping

iPlan’s Scoping methodology is a quick and inexpensive project to clarify and ensure consensus on the specific objectives of a proposed business system project; and to quantify what it will take in terms of time, money, effort, people, risk and disruption.

The deliverable is a Project Charter that our Clients typically use in governance processes to approve the project (e.g. Board approval); subsequently to contract implementation teams; and eventually to measure success against objectives.

 

Meryl Malcomess, longtime SYSPRO Marketing Director: “For many years I have found it hugely beneficial to call in iPlan to help organizations optimize the potential of their ERP software.  These highly-skilled professionals have extensive, in-depth experience of ERP implementation projects and understand the full impact of ERP as well as its strategic importance to the organization.
