Kljub zaprtju mej smo uspešno dokončali projekt ERP na Jamajki
Čeprav se je svet zaradi epidemije ustavil, je ekipa Utility Infrastructure Management (UIM) dokazala, da so ovire le izzivi, ki jih lahko z močno ekipno voljo vedno premagaš.
V lanskem letu je ekipa UIM pričela z implementacijo projekta ERP na Jamajki, ki so jo ob večkratnem obisku uspeli spoznati tudi izven pisarne in nekaj dni preživeti tudi ob čudovitem Karibskem morju. Po letu dni trdega dela, prepletenega z izzivi dveh časovnih pasov in usklajevanja ekipe, ki je prisotna v štirih državah (Slovenija, Hrvaška, Srbija in Danska), so projekt uspešno končali v roku.
Kljub temu da začetka delovanja projekta ekipa 16 članov ni mogla praznovati skupaj v prostorih podjetja, smo tudi za ta izziv našli rešitev ter jim organizirali spletno go-live praznovanje. Na domače naslove smo jim poslali paket presenečenja in povabilo na virtualni dogodek, ki smo ga organizirali na platformi Microsoft Teams. Kakšno je bilo videti praznovanje, lahko preverite na našem profilu LinkedIn.
Vodja ekipe, Tamara Bertok Velkavrh, ter projektni vodja, Gal Šmidovnik, sta na vprašanje, zakaj je bil ta projekt tako poseben in kakšni so njuni občutki sedaj, ko je projekt uspešno zaključen, odgovorila:
There were moments when doubts about going live with this project were running high, when nerves were tested at their limit, when all we had was our determination and each other, which was what kept us pushing forward and not accept a not going live as an answer!
All this could be possible only because of the people, who were involved in this project. And I mean really all of them, from the most junior consultant to the most top manager with all the consultants, developers, architects, team leads and our project manager in the middle. The spirit we developed in really, really working together as a team and not just as a one-time project group is amazing. There were no “mine and yours” it was always about “we and ours“. It is an everyday small miracle that keeps me going on despite various challenges life lays down on my path. I cannot express enough how thankful I am in working in the middle of these amazing people and how confident it makes me feel knowing that I can always count on them.

The project was without a doubt a very challenging one as is usually the case with international projects. Cultural and language barriers coupled with different time zones make coordination and cooperation much more demanding. Unlike most of our projects, where Adacta is the main contractor, this time we were a subtractor, further adding to the complexity of the project, as we were dealing with customer and main contractor stakeholders, we had much more communication channels, etc. We were able to overcome all of this with dedication and teamwork between all three parties. The fact that the customer decided to purchase UIM module had a positive effect on the project timeline, as it reduced the required level of customizations in D365FO. In the end, we delivered the project on time and we can safely say, that Adacta has yet another satisfied customer.
