ERP Unique Blended Upgrade Services
As a tried and trusted provider of Unit4 ERP and Lawson products, G7 is in an ideal position to support your business before, during and following its upgrade process.
Why Work With us
G7 brings a wealth of trusted consultancy and Application Managed Service (AMS) experience to your upgrade, thanks to our specialism in Unit4 ERP and long history of working with Unit4 (Agresso) and Lawson software since 2001.
G7 upgrade packages are carefully created with your organisation’s unique set-up and versioning in mind, using our combination of on-site consultancy and our G7 Application Managed Service (AMS) teams.
Our blended upgrade services offer flexibility and a more cost effective and efficient way of handling your upgrade, resolving issues swiftly with the AMS team on hand as and when required.
How We Help
Upgrading your ERP system brings new opportunities for your business, saves staff time on daily processes, and delivers improved business intelligence and additional granularity in reporting.
Whether you need a technical upgrade from a legacy version of Unit4 ERP, or a complete reimplementation, an upgrade is a business-critical decision for an organisation.
We plan and manage our customer upgrades carefully, ensuring minimal disruption to the business and making sure maximum benefits are gained.
Our project managers and consultants guide you through every step of the upgrade. Help with design and additional build is also available to supplement your in-house resources, providing you with additional options should you also wish to include enhancements into the upgrade.
Upgrades can range from like for like upgrades to full re-implementations.
Our upgrade programme is flexible to fit your needs and typically includes:
Phase 1: Plan - comprehensive plan identifying responsibilities and deadlines for each activity
Phase 2: System extract pre upgrade to identify your current set-up
Phase 3: Test upgrade
Phase 4: G7 will carry out a 2nd extract, comparing and contrasting mandatory parameters for you, which can save days of testing
Phase 5: Design and additional build if quick wins for additional areas are being added
Phase 6: G7 can assist with any testing queries through access to the G7 Application Managed Service or Consultancy services
Phase 7: Support – ongoing support, problem solving and business-as-usual, with our G7 Application Managed Service team
Optional - Differences workshop – we’ll highlight the pre- and post-upgrade changes and review them with you, discussing new functionality now available and any additional functionality or changes appropriate to your current business processes
Some customers also choose to run design workshops, either before or after the upgrade, to highlight any changes or quick wins that could be incorporated or implemented post upgrade.
The Application Managed Service, which is used during testing in the blended upgrade service, can also be used for business as usual. Find out more about our Application Managed Service where we offer seamless support to help your systems and staff thrive.
