THE FIVE PHASES

Transitioning to Aeronet will involve Five Critical Phases with a strong emphasis on connecting systems, process and people. Each phase has its own Tasks (what we will do), Deliverables (what you will get) and Milestones (key points of delivery along the way), and each will be elaborated on as the project unfolds. Based on previous experience, we can estimate the investment for the entire project however we generally work on a subscription based on-boarding so that you are completely in control of the time frame and cost of the project.

ANALYSIS & EVALUATION


The purpose of the Analysis & Evaluation Phase is to establish a clear list of your company’s requirements. We install a fully functional demo version of Aeronet. This will enable complete testing and comprehensive understanding of the system, all while work-flows are mapped, and existing processes mirrored or improved upon.

The Analysis & Evaluation Phase allows the Project Team to list your requirements against existing Aeronet functionality. These are then categorized into three responses: 

  • CAN DEMO – Aeronet meets this requirement “Out of the box”. 
  • CAN CONFIGURE – With some configuration, Aeronet meets this requirement. 
  • CAN DEVELOP – With some custom development by our Product team, we can meet this requirement. 

We also prioritize these requirements with you into “Must Have” and “Should Have”, to help us focus on what is most important to your business. 

At the end of this phase, we will be able to Demonstrate all CAN DEMO and CAN CONFIGURE requirements, and provide a quote for any MUST HAVE requirements that require development. 

It is possible that after phase 1, the decision is that Aeronet is not a good fit. This is a good result for everyone. In this case, you are welcome to take the Requirements Document to market to find a more suitable solution. 

If after the Analysis & Evaluation Phase, Aeronet is a good fit for you and your organisation, we can move quickly to the Onboarding Phase.

​ONBOARDING


This phase of the project is about working with Stakeholders to ensure all the requirements established in the Evaluation Phase have been met. 

The Aeronet Evaluation Document evolves into a detailed Project Plan with the requirements becoming “User Accepted”. 

We expect small tweaks and tune ups at the Onboarding phase to get your installation to your liking. All of these are covered by the Onboarding Subscription with cost staying the same throughout the entire Evaluation and Onboarding.

Reports, stationery and forms are developed and final setup is completed. Your company’s install Is moved to a live production server, backups commence, and a go live day is set. 

End User training is planned and scheduled, with help documentation (User Journeys) drafted for users. 

GO LIVE & SUPPORT


At this point, you are ready to go live. End User training is completed including help documentation. User Journeys are published for end users.

At this point, if you are confident that you are "onboard" with Aeronet, the Onboarding Subscription can end. If you would like to continue weekly meetings and access to some regular training, you may choose to continue the Onboarding Subscription to get access to the Aeronet project team.

ONGOING SUPPORT


The Aeronet team is dedicated to ensuring that your transition to Aeronet is seamless, and that ongoing use is made easy through continued support. Our friendly support staff will manage your queries into the future when help is required which is covered by your on going Aeronet Subscription.

Additional User Training can be requested as required and are covered by a separate Training Statements of Work. If at any point, you would like sustained help to "re onboard" your organisation to Aeronet, we can offer a short term re onboarding subscription to give a "booster shot" to your Aeronet install.  

CUSTOMIZATION


Aeronet is fully customizable to your business processes. Customization and additional development is quoted on a task by task basis. Any customization required will be fully quoted before any work commences. Estimated costs in the proposal are for budget purposes only – subject to the completion of the Analysis & Evaluation Phase. 

Additional Development can be commissioned on a “Buy or Wait” basis at any time. All good ideas from users are put on the Roadmap and they all, eventually, will become part of the product. 

These Feature Requests can viewed at our Support Portal

Funding the development helps us deliver these new features quicker and hence we offer the “buy or wait” option for our users. 

If the development costs are a good ROI for your work-flow then it becomes win/win. 

New development releases are continuous. Development can be requested as required and are covered by separate statements of work. 

We work using an Agile methodology that helps us quickly deliver software to our clients. This is based on the Scrum methodologies, with some of our own special sauce thrown in for good measure. User requirements are gathered using User Stories (As a [“Who”] I want/need to [“What”], so I can [“Why”]. We then design the delivery of the user story [“How”] and prioritize those User Stories into Sprints [“When”]). 

Agile is an extremely effective way of focusing software teams on delivery outcomes and listening to User Feedback so we can iterate our solutions towards what real users need.

DOCUMENT DEFINITIONS


A Proposal will provide an overall estimate of costs for budget purposes including Aeronet Software subscription and Onboarding Subscription cost

An Aeronet Requirements Document is prepared for you as part of the Analysis & Evaluation Phase. An EMAPS workshop helps us to create a picture of what processes your company currently has in place. Your processes are mapped and any areas that could be improved are identified and documented. Any processes that do not correspond to any of Aeronets User Journeys are grouped and analyzed. This document will establish if Aeronet is a good fit for your business as it is, or whether it requires some form of customization.

A detailed Project Plan is created. It outlines tasks, deliverables and timelines. This document will become the collaboration tool used by all key stakeholders and users.
