YMS integration is a complex and challenging process. That's why the C3 implementation team has worked to combine its experience and expertise with best-in-class processes to create an implementation roadmap we call Project In Motion.

YMS integration is a complex and challenging process. From defining the business objectives to fine-tuning pre-launch bugs, the process demands rigor and the flexibility to adapt to changing requirements and stay on target.

Creating zero-risk roll-outs

The C3 implementation team of industry experts, project managers, integration specialists and trainers has worked to combine its experience and expertise with best-in-class processes to create an implementation roadmap we call Project In Motion.

Project In Motion is based on the Project Management Institute’s tried-and-tested software deployment methodology overlaid with 10 years of C3 experience and innovation. We’ve developed a set of highly adapted tools to help us manage every phase of your implementation.

Going further than implementation

Process analysis is an integral part of the implementation process. But during the process analysis phase, our consultants go beyond simply looking at software issues. They may make recommendations for the physical layout of the yard or business process improvements. Best of all, you can simulate the impact of any changes using Yard Smart to test the change scenarios.

Our fully documented process guarantees that every change in your business procedures is properly recorded. Our adherence to the Software Engineering Institute’s Capabilities Maturity Model best practices also ensures that any modules developed specifically for your implementation will meet Yard Smart’s service level guarantees.

The Project In Motion methodology doesn’t end when your project goes live. Our team follows a strict schedule for follow-ups, fine-tuning and continued training – all to ensure your organization gets the maximum impact out of its Yard Smart implementation.
