Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step
Implementation Methodology
A critical component to the success of an ERP or CRM implementation is careful
planning, execution and follow-up of all processes. For the same reason, the use of a
proven methodology tool becomes a key factor to achieve this.
Sure Step has become Microsoft's strongly recommended implementation methodology for all its Dynamics products. Since all
Dynamics products are implemented by partners, it's in Microsoft's interests to facilitate consistent implementations whenever
possible. This is why at GCG we employ the Microsoft Sure Step Methodology. This tool integrates a project management discipline
and recommended proven practices of implementation, migration and upgrade of ERP and CRM systems. Sure Step is designed to
accelerate the productivity of all users. It is standardized and organized in stages, allowing us to implement projects in a consistent
and reproducible way using a set of tools and templates which help us ensure that projects are completed efficiently. It also allows
us to minimize risks during the implementation process and maintain customer satisfaction.

Implementation Methodology
Phases 1 & 2
Where we discover essential project details and define the project scope.
This is the initial phase of the implementation. Includes the specific interviews of key users and observation of
business processes. The objective is to understand existing procedures and recommend new business
processes complimentary to the capabilities of the proposed solution. This information will be referenced
during the training and implementation phases of the engagement, to ensure success in achieving the
customer objectives.
Where we identify critical processes and help our customers make smart
decisions for implementation.
During the analysis phase we go much deeper than the high-level analysis performed in the Diagnostic phase. At the
end of this phase, our customers have a detailed understanding of the proposed Microsoft Dynamics
implementation. This includes the project cost, deliverables, and milestones. Although the deliverables may vary
according to the size and type of project, they can include: Project Kick-off, Project Charter, Project Plan, Risks,
Change Control Plan, Communications Plan, Training Plan, Functional Requirements Document (FRD), Fit Gap
Analysis, Test Plan, Infrastructure Scope and Design Document, Integration and Interface Requirements and Data
Migration Requirements.
Implementation Methodology
Phases 3 & 4
Where we identify how the system needs to be customized to our
customer specific needs.
Building on the deliverables created during Analysis, this phase consists of determining the design for the overall
Microsoft Dynamics implementation and designing solutions for specific customizations, integrations, and data
migration needed to satisfy business requirements. The primary deliverables are a high-level design specification that
satisfy the decisions determined in the previous phases. These design specifications will guide the development
activities in the following phase.
Where we customize features, migrate data, test and configure the
system to ensure functionality.
The primary purpose is to develop the customizations, integrations, and data migration processes defined in the design
specifications created and approved in the previous phase. We also complete the setup and configuration of the
standard solution and any other vertical.
solution that may be added by an ISV. The primary deliverables of Development phase are the completed and tested
setup, configurations, customizations, reports, integrations, and any data migration programs and processes. Each
component developed in this phase is tested and verified to be functioning as defined by the Functional requirements,
design specifications, and testing criteria.
Implementation Methodology
Phases 5 & 6
Where we implement our customer solution.
The primary deliverable is a functioning live system. Activities in this phase prepare the infrastructure, application
environment, and end-users for the cutover to the new system.
Activities in this phase include:
• Prepare Go-Live plans and system test plans.
• Confirm end-user training plans as part of the finalized deployment plan.
• Configure the live and test environments.
• Perform system testing and load testing using a subset of the customer's data.
• Prepare and delivering end-user training.
• Complete final data migration and validation.
• Complete all Go-Live activities to launch the new system.
The primary deliverables from the Deployment phase include all tasks that are required to deploy the new solution
to the live environment so that the customer can start to use it in day-to-day business processes.
Where we ensure a smooth transition to the new system.
The primary purpose is to support the customer technically and functionally during the initial Go Live period for the
new system. At the end of the phase, the project is transitioned to the customer, and we welcome the opportunity to
provide on-going support.
Awards and Recognition
Probably there is no other Microsoft Dynamics Partner in Latin America who
has received more awards than GCG during the last few years. We are
pleased to share some of the honors and recognitions the GCG has received
that are related to our customer service, performance and best business
Microsoft Dynamics Partner of the Year.
The only seven-time recipient: Microsoft Dynamics Outstanding Partner of the Year Award for Mexico or Latin America (2013, 2012,
2010, 2008, 2005, 2004, 2002, 2001)
Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle.
9 consecutive years: Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle and President’s Club Awards (2005-2013)
This award is granted to a very small Group of partners and it is known as “Inner Circle”. It represents the most prominent Partners
whose performance places them in the highest level of recognition a business of our type can aspire; it is formed by the top 1% of
Microsoft Dynamics partners worldwide. Since 2001, GCG has received it eight times (2012 , 2010, 2008 , 2007, 2005 , 2004, 2002 ,
Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club.

Microsoft Gold Certified Partner en AX, CRM y SL
This is the highest certification level a Partner from Microsoft can receive and it takes place every year. This is to ensure they maintain
their staff with the experience and knowledge necessary to deploy successful implementations. GCG has maintained this level of
certification for the past thirteen years in a row.
Strategic Alliances
With customers across 30 countries and many Microsoft Inner-Circle and President's Club partners, ZAP is focused on
delivering rapidly deployed, business-focused business intelligence software and solutions.
Unlike other BI companies that are just focused on features and functionality, ZAP focuses primarily on what is needed
for rapid uptake and effective use of BI across the enterprise. ZAP applications have state-of-the-art features and its
essential difference is they focus on the content itself; which can be immediately made available to the users. This
removes the burden of the end-user from trying to figure out first how to use the software provided, and second, what
questions they should try to answer with the tools.
ZAP's software is such that BI content can be pre-built, packaged, maintained and reused. This allows ZAP and its
business partners like GCG to apply their deep industry expertise and data analysis skills to create business intelligence
solutions for applications (like Microsoft Dynamics) with specific industry focuses with BI deployments that are rapid,
deliver immediate business outcomes and are tailored for each user in an enterprise.
Nom2001 is a comprehensive Payroll, HR and Social Security system. We offer this product as a complement to
Microsoft Dynamics AX. It has been designed and developed for Mexican mid-sized companies and is one of the top
leaders in the market.
“Now that the project has been released with AX and ZAP BI, I’m very happy to
confirm that our expectations have been exceeded and our project goals have
been met. GCG’s guidance and support during the time of implementation was
crucial. The team of consultants had a deep understanding of our company
and it is really a big pleasure for us to have GCG as our IT strategic partner”
