Steps to a Successful Conversion

Step 1: Understand Requirements

SMA Solutions’ expert consultants meet with your team to understand your existing scheduling environment and put together a plan to convert your data to OpCon. All conversions are tailored to each individual customer’s environment to meet the specific needs of the business.

Step 2: Data Extraction

Working together, we use existing data export programs, reports or databases to extract data from your current scheduling environment. We convert all of your workflows or only certain pieces, according to your needs and wishes.

Step 3: Customization

Our consultants use a collaborative approach to understand how your current schedules and jobs are defined to then map that data into the OpCon database. SMA Solutions’ consultants translate your data in a way that preserves what you are currently doing in your new OpCon environment.

Step 4: Testing

The most important part of conversions is testing. Our consultants work with you to produce an iterative process to test, refine and retest the conversion data until you are assured of the results.

Step 5: Go Live

We go live only when you say things are good. After your approval, our consultants will run the automated conversion programs and build the new OpCon database to be used in your live environment.
