Proven Upgrade Methodology


Symmetry’s proven methodology paves the way for a smooth, hassle free go-live by utilizing a pilot upgrade and developing detailed documentation specific to this process in your environment. The pilot upgrade delivers return on investment by uncovering potential issues at the planning phase, which is far less costly than at go-live. It also provides an opportunity to thoroughly test business processes in the new system, and develop detailed documentation. The information comes from multiple sources – manuals, notes, customer-specific tasks (pre- or post-work) as well as step-by-step instructions for all actions and data entry followed in the pilot upgrade. Having such detailed documentation prepared and easily accessible during the go-live cutover dramatically reduces the risk delays or downtime caused by errors.
