Our Approach - Ochiba's 5 Step Methodology

Ochiba have been implementing and supporting SAP Business One for small to medium sized companies for over a decade. We understand that every business is different and that each company we deal with has their own requirements and complexities. Although SAP Business One is an "out of the box" solution it is very flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual company.

To ensure each project is a success we have developed a 5 step methodology which ensures we fully understand those unique requirements and deliver a solution which exceeds expectation. 

Step 1 - Project Initiation

The first step is the formation of the project team.  A project kick-off session will be arranged to run through the functional requirements discussed during the sales process, introduce the project team and discuss the initial plan, tasks and responsibilities.  The initial software installation will also take place and any hardware delivered (if required).

Step 2 - Project Definition

Our senior consultants will conduct workshops and discussions with you in order to understand in detail the business processes and requirements.  Initial training will be completed so that everyone involved will be able to define how the system should be configured to meet the business needs.  The output from this phase is a detailed "Blueprint" document which forms the basis of the project moving forward.

Step 3 - Project Delivery

Our consultants will then build and configure the system using customer data.  This pilot system will then be used in workshops to test and further define the final solution.  This is an iterative process as new requirements and functional tweaks are identified as the users become more familiar with SAP and its potential.  Test plans are drawn up and the system goes through detailed process testing prior to being signed off. 

Step 4 - Final Preparation

Final end user training is undertaken on the configured system, current data is imported and cut over plans drawn up. The system then goes through final checks and reconciliation prior to switching over.

Step 5 - Go Live Support

Following go-live our consultants will support you until you're confident with the system. The consultant will monitor the live system and resolve any residual issues or tasks.  Our dedicated support team will then take over as a final system review takes place.

Our Clients

With the implementation of SAP Business One we have been able to reduce stock holding by 15% whilst achieving a 20% growth in sales, with no increase in stock out positions. The project has been such a success that we expect the payback on investment to be less than 18 months!

Paul Morewood, Managing Director, Duro

Since implementing SAP Business One we have been able to improve our efficiency, simplify our business processes and eliminate the duplication of data and effort, allowing us to take advantage of international growth opportunities.

Stephen Johnson, Financial Controller, Codel

We have a complete, integrated solution to manage our entire business. We improved purchasing planning significantly, reducing time and cost with better results. This let us increase sales and profits with no additional resources. With the advanced inventory planning for SAP we have been able to significantly reduce the number of items we have to expedite by air, reducing our costs and ensuring we maximise profitability.

James Mills, Operations Director, Talar Made

We chose SAP Business One with Vehicles Management because we wanted flexible product configuration, integrated with our sales and manufacturing, along with the ability to build and manage an efficient and effective dealer network. We also wanted to reduce the manpower overhead typically needed with these. We wanted to grow the company not the workforce!

Brandon James, Managing Director, Brian James Trailers Ltd

With the advanced production planning for SAP we have been able to significantly reduce our planning cycle times responding quickly and accurately to customer demands.

Bev Turns, Financial Controller, Sheppee International

As a Gold Partner we operate a dedicated SAP Business One Support Team who will ensure your system continues to work to its optimal performance level.

Through utilising direct phone communication, web portal access and the SAP Remote Support Platform (RSP) to proactively monitor your SAP system, we are able to rectify any issues which may occur. Service levels are continually monitored automatically and issues are escalated to the relevant technical, development and consulting teams as required, yet still remaining the responsibility of the support team until completion.
