Frequently Asked Questions
What are some of things you would oversee during realization phase of our SAP project if we were to engage an advisor from your company ?
How do the client get visibility into your advisory activities once you engage on a SAP implementation ?
On every SAP project where we engage as an "Advisor", we create two periodic reports i.e. "QA Advisory Report" and "Executive Advisory Report". Typically "QA Advisory Report" report is submitted to our direct report on the project on a bi-weekly basis and include all the activities, outputs, deliverables and project practices we have reviewed during the two weeks. Key positives and shortcomings during these reviews are highlighted in the report with corrective actions and recommendations that were made to the teams to address any problems that were identified. Any risks or issues are identified and recommended actions to mitigate these risks are included.
"Executive Advisory Report" is the report that is submitted every 4-6 weeks to the project sponsor or steering committee that presents an executive summary of QA Advisory Report to the executive leadership. Typically this report is reviewed by the project sponsor or the Chief Information Officer (CIO) before being submitted to the steering committee. This report is optional and submitted if our client exclusively asks us to include this report in addition to the standard QA Advisory Report.
How often does an RICEF Advisor come onsite at project location ?
When we are engaged for a specific phase or full life cycle of an SAP project, our engagement is typically onsite fulltime. We will be onsite at the project location from Monday until Thursday every week (36-40 hours) for the duration of the contract. We do work offsite on Fridays' (up to 4 hours on a Friday) but we also incorporate our internal company and other business meetings into our Friday schedule.
Do you offer any special discounted rates for government or public sector organisations for the advisory services ?
We review each government or other public sector engagement on a case by case basis. Typically we offer up to 10% discount on our billing rates to public sector SAP implementations.
We are the SAP Systems Integrator and would like to engage your advisory services to take advantage of the best practices for RICEF development management. Would you work with us ?
We typically work with the SAP clients directly. On some occasions we have worked with the SAP systems integrators but we will commit only after reviewing your request on a case by case basis.
Are you a partner of SAP or any big 4 consulting company ?
We provide 100% unbiased and independent advisory service to our customers. We have intentionally not partnered with SAP or any consulting company including big 4 firms so as to avoid any conflict of interest that would prohibit us from provide 100% unbiased and neutral advise to our customers.
