As a result, all financial processes were docked with the processes that took place in the operational contours of logistics, tested, data was transferred, and integration was carried out, for correct reflection in the financial data block from logistics processes.
Since the company is growing and developing very quickly, and its business processes are constantly being modified and optimized, the Nova Poshta team decided to launch the system in several stages. The transport logistics module was put into operation in January 2018. The functional blocks of procurement: internal procurement, procurement, distribution of materials on the internal network and the block that dealt with the reflection of income, as the most closely related to finance, were launched simultaneously with the finance module on July 1, 2018. Due to its complexity and the need to adjust the initial reference data, which had to be finalized and validated by the joint efforts of the project teams of Nova Poshta and OntargIT, the launch of the Management of requests for payment and outgoing payments (treasury) module was completed somewhat later.
Since November 2018, all key processes of the company have been set up and run in the new ERP. The system also generates and maintains IFRS reporting, accounting and tax reporting, which is based on localization developed by OntargIT and fully adapted to the needs of Nova Poshta and Ukrainian accounting standards. Today, the system generates accurate operational information for financial control, forms documents and analytical reporting, set up end-to-end control and a clear audit trail for control. All key participants in the processes perform their functions in the system without double input of information, loss of time, resources, etc.
As part of the implementation process, OntargIT consultants conducted a comprehensive training for the working group specialists and key users. Today, Nova Poshta has formed an internal team for the implementation and support of the solution, which includes more than 20 people (business analysts, developers, support service specialists, testers), which fully covers most of the issues related to the support and further development of the system. Nova Poshta is developing rapidly, and the internal team will continue to develop the system in-house, while retaining the key expertise accumulated within the project.
At the end of 2018, the active phase of support provided by OntargIT was completed. Today the second stage of support is coming to an end – the stabilization phase, which is carried out by the specialists of the internal team. At the moment, OntargIT provides support services to Nova Poshta in the mode of the 3rd support line and performs targeted improvements on requests arising from the changing processes in the company.
The implementation of a complex and large-scale project took place thanks to the well-coordinated work of all team members. Today Dynamics AX employs over 600 employees of Nova Poshta, who are located at the sites: in Kiev and Poltava.
