- Phase I – Transport Management & Accounts Receivable
- The key elements of Phase II are to complete the implementation of the remaining elements of the Accounts Modules being:
Accounts Payable, the Journal and General Ledger.
- This Phase would also include the configuration of the warehouse and workshop modules.
- Further financial reporting structures will be defined and configured at this point, as will the reporting requirements in the warehouse and workshop modules.
- Once the base system has been implemented, defining and designing the most optimum structure to manage the operational structures and processes within each customer will be the focus of Phase III.
- EDI requirements will also be incorporated into this phase, as certain elements of the operational structure will need to be defined with EDI definitions being taken into consideration.
- The completion of Phase III will result in the operational activities at the customer being managed and therefore the costing and profitability reporting will be introduced and refined to meet the needs of management.
- On achieving management of the operational activities within the customer, the next phase will involve the implementation of the Web Server and integrating the image capture of POD’s into the application.
- We will have previously reviewed the requirements outlined by each customer regarding mobile integration and will understand the end result that each customer wants to achieve.
- The justification for leaving the mobile integration to the final phase is due to the complex operational structure and rules that need to be defined prior to developing any interface to a mobile device.
- The design of screen layouts, rules and processes controlled through the mobile device will be defined and implemented during this phase.
- Upon completion, the customer’s employees would control the movement of freight through the use of either using a hand-held computer or scanners and barcode labeled logistics units.
