Plan

The first interaction between the customer and our Epoch Professional Services sets the tone for the success of the project. In this stage, we introduce our methodology, communication, and education plans, and establish the project governance structure. Key activities include an onsite discovery session, solution and release planning, and the business requirements signoff. The outcome is mutual alignment around requirements and metrics for success.

Build

Using the release point framework and sprint cycles of the solution and release plan, Epoch Solutions Group begins requirement-specific configuration with the goal of demonstrating value quickly. Customers have the opportunity to begin testing and prepare for User Acceptance Testing in the next stage. Important outcomes include feature acceptance signoff and validation of the end-user training materials.

Rollout

Any successful rollout depends on thorough testing and training. This stage focuses on User Acceptance Training, System Integration Testing (as required), and end-user training. These lead to a finalized cut-over plan; migration to the production environment; and technical and business go-lives. Clients are introduced to Customer Support and Account Management contacts responsible for ongoing Epoch Solutions Group support.

Adopt

At Epoch Solutions Group, being “customer-obsessed” means being committed to ongoing adoption and success from using our solution. In this stage we conduct a project retrospective, review the change management plan, and establish how success metrics will be tracked. The Customer Account Management team closes out the stage with a review of ongoing engagements.
