7 tips for the implementation process

  1. Put together an internal project team to prepare for implementation.
  2. Ask your implementation partner for a clear project plan.
  3. Keep your data ready: product information, customer-specific pricing, order history and stock information. This data is transferred to the new system.
  4. Present a demo version to a small group of customers. Use their feedback to make adjustments.
  5. Reserve time to detect software bugs.
  6. Test your platform extensively on issues such as speed and stability.
  7. Check whether the applications that are linked to your platform function as desired.

Measure, analyze and optimize

Realize that the go-live of your new platform is not the end of the project. Rather a new beginning. It is wise to think about the aftercare beforehand. Therefore keep the internal project team ready even after launch. Once you are in the air, they can detect and correct any errors.

Also reserve a budget for the further development of your platform: after going live, the continuous process of conversion optimization begins. Constantly measuring, analyzing and adjusting to make it as easy as possible for your customer.
