Project Approach

Westbrook wisdomTM is our proprietary end-to-end implementation approach.

We take your business solution from ideas through to deployment and adoption – and offer ongoing support.

It provides the basis for you to build a clear business case for Salesforce – helping you get the most out of your investment and state a clear return on it in a sustained and balanced way.

We tailor westbrook wisdom™ to your culture, and can deliver both waterfall and agile approaches.

Each stage of the process is carefully designed to ensure delivery that’s implemented on time, on budget and with well-managed risk.

Wisdom Stages

1. SCOPE

We delve into the details to get a clear image of your goals, gathering user stories and matching them to system requirements.

Beginning with a kick-off meeting, your lead consultant will work with you to map out the scope of the Salesforce implementation. We translate your requirements into clear actions, providing documentation on how we will build the solution.

If you’re new to the cloud and CRM, our consultant will guide you through the process, delivering a system in keeping with Salesforce best practice. If you are already using CRM or Service systems, your business processes will be reviewed on how best to re-create and improve them in Salesforce.

From this initial engagement, our team will create a series of Requirements within the Statement of Work. This output document provides a list of the work to be completed by Westbrook & the governance of the overall project delivery.

2. HIGH LEVEL DESIGN

Our team review your requirements, focusing on the best approach to build the business solution.

During the high-level design phase, we will explain the proposed system architecture, and what Salesforce Platform or 3rd party tools are needed within the implementation.

To get the most out of the Salesforce platform, your architecture may require system integration.

Our specialist data & integration Centre of Excellence team will run you through the range of options that suit your organisation, and the time required to deploy them.

Common Salesforce Integrations

  • Connecting marketing tools
  • Integrating ERP or stock management systems.
  • Connecting the platform with custom applications
  • Automating invoicing systems
  • Automating data loading through 3rd party applications
  • 3. DETAILED DESIGN

    Each component of your agreed system architecture is designed in detail, broken down into time-line for delivery.

    Working within the WisdomTM methodology, the project then transitions to an Agile project environment, with each sprint starting with a detailed design phase.

    This approach ensures a balance of flexible delivery via Agile Sprints, with an overall progressive approach.

    4. BUILD

    Using the deliverables from the detailed design phase and statement of work, our team begin the build phase of the sprint.

    Our team build, configure and customise Salesforce to create your solution in a Sandbox Salesforce environment.

    This provides a safe and secure environment to ensure your solution is engineered with absolute understanding of both your business issues and your technical environment.

    5. TEST

    To close each sprint cycle, all elements of the solution are thoroughly tested within its Sandbox environment, to ensure stability before further development.

    During the test phase, if another sprint is required to deliver the project, this is then designed in detail, returning to step 4.

    When all sprints are complete, we review your system from both a technical perspective – and then it is available for User Acceptance Testing to ensure your team is happy with the finished system capability.

    6. DEPLOY

    Once your solution has been fully tested and reviewed by your project team, we roll-out in the system environment.

    Your system is ready for use, and Users will be given access for on-boarding & training.

    If you are using a full sandbox, this will also be updated to include the new system configuration – creating a development environment for future improvements or project phases.

    7. ADOPT

    Users are the most important part of any CRM system. With well trained users, they have both the insights & tools they need at their fingertips to drive a projects’ success.

    Westbrook provides a range of training options, including classroom sessions, online training via webinar platform, or a ‘train the trainer’ approach dependant on your budget and requirements.

    Training documentation will also be provided, to help on-board future admins of the system.
