I mentioned in my previous posts that my team is now currently rolling-out the last 3 plants with a total of 16 sites for a Client's Sales and Distribution system.

This system allows full integration of Sales Route Management (Route Calls, Booking activities), Order Processing (Order encoding, Stock allocation, credit checking & approval, Invoicing & delivery documents generation) and Financial Transactions (Accounts Receivables, Collections and daily closing activities) and Reporting (Reports, Portal). Quite an ambitious undertaking (implementing to over a dozen provincial plants with close to 80 sales offices - and integrate all these locations into one system using a Web Portal application).

These past 3 weeks, I have been hopping from one place to another to check out and oversee the Teams assigned, conduct Business Process trainings, monitor progress of sites' preparation activities. In a week, I was in Naga, then Tacloban & Tanauan (in Leyte) and then took a 6-hour bus ride to La Union - all in just 5 days.

With pride, the Team in Leyte was able to 'cutover' the Plant to the new system last week ( I was there with the Team when they worked over night and completed all transactions 10:00am the next day). But it was a succesful cutover - I should say, where local users were able to transition to the new system more easily.

Naga site encountered some few roadblocks, nonetheless, a smooth cutover was done last weekend. Both Teams (Naga & Leyte) will move on to the sales offices next week - starting on 04-February and should be finished by next weekend.

Since Wednesday, I'm in La Union to oversee the transition and cutover activities. Yesterday, the Team succesfully cutover the site to the new system as well. It feels good that the Teams were as reliable as ever, and this makes every Project Manager very proud!

It's almost done - and I will definitely find ways to give another challenging projects for these Teams.

The Consulting team that I was tasked to manage is composed of 12 young, energetic, talented, smart and beautiful men and ladies who are always up to take every challenge given to them. With these in my arsenal, we can readily take any Sales and Distribution and Finance projects with ease and finesse.
