Equipped with a strong future vision, Avantiico will map solutions from the full Microsoft ecosystem to support your organization’s strategic goals. From Dynamics ERP, Customer Relationship Management, Machine Learning, Virtual Agents, AI and more, We understand that the range of technology choices can be overwhelming- Avantiico works with you to compile a manageable short-list of potential technology solutions which can be further analyzed to validate business value. 

Benefits of Short-listing Solutions & Goals

Validate Business Value

Avantiico uses the Design phase to build a compelling case for change by reviewing previously discussed business and technological impacts. During this phase, we will quantify the return on investment (ROI), as well as the benefits of making a move- reviewing facets like revenue growth, cost savings, as well as employee efficiencies. This phase allows your business to align technology investments to your most important business goals.

Outputs of the Business Value and Solution Assessments

Build confidence in technology options and choices by validating benefits through a detailed Business Value Assessment. Receive a comprehensive assessment of potential investments and benefits before committing to specific technologies.

During the Design phase, we’ll use two important workshops to create a blueprint for specific plans for change:

The Business Value Assessment (BVA) helps your organization link the business outcomes you want for your business with the previously discussed capabilities you want to prioritize. In a BVA, Avantiico will create a solution prioritization analysis, a timeline, a budgetary estimate and a projection of the value of implemented scenarios over time. This will help you quantify the business value of the proposed solution. 

The solution assessment brings your most important stakeholders together to review current objectives in the business, processes, and existing technology. It helps you summarize your plan to achieve a digital transformation while tackling specific goals, using the tailored roadmap blueprint that Avantiico helps you put together. 

Following the above assessments, Avantiico will evaluate submitted documents, data and findings from the workshops to deliver you an all-encompassing presentation. You can expect the following outcome: 

Involve Your Team

The Empower phase of this framework includes the generation of a solution demonstration. This demonstration can then be used by stakeholders to share their vision with the rest of their organization, ultimately aligning key influencers and important decision-makers. Avantiico will help you align tailored demo content and resources with their relevant product capabilities to showcase new business processes, as discussed in the envisioning workshop. 

Achieve Your Vision

The Achieve phase of the framework helps you transition from envisioning to executing. Avantiico will offer a customized action plan blueprint that will aid you in actionizing the proposed solutions and processes in an effort to transform your business. To do this, Avantiico uses a comprehensive Transformation Plan that includes the Observation Model, the Business Value and Solution Assessments, and the Solution Demo. We will also help review advocacy planning and support adoption through client-success workshops.
