EBMS Nimblex joins VendorPanel, creating a world class Source-to-Pay procurement suite

Project Management and Implementation.

Nimblex assigns a Project Manager to each new project who works with clients and the Nimblex staff to expertly deliver the final product.

Project Management and Implementation

The Project Manager will keep the client and Nimblex stakeholders updated on the status of the project, and will manage the implementation process.

The method chosen depends on the type and size of the project: our Core Solutions follow the BRIDGE methodology while the more configured solutions use the Nimblex SIMPLE methodology.

Nimblex Core Solutions: BRIDGE Project Methodology

The BRIDGE implementation approach is used in the delivery of our Core Solutions. Core Solutions are mature solutions that require little configuration. They are off-the-shelf applications, yet they remain flexible and configurable.

The word bridge refers to ‘bridging the gap’ which encapsulates the main emphasis of this approach – we do a gap analysis between your current needs and the Core Solutions you are implementing.

Key benefits of this implementation approach:

  • Starting with a mature framework: Our Core Solutions enable you to start with a framework and we will help you to correctly identify your needs using this framework as a guide.
  • Quick and Easy: This way of implementation will ensure we get you up and running in a short lead time with a best-fit solution.

The BRIDGE Process

  • Stage 1: Introduction to the Project (Guide)
  • Stage 2: Gap Analysis (Guide)
  • Stage 3: Tailoring (Guide)
  • Stage 4: Launch (Guide)

Nimblex Configured Solutions: SIMPLE Project Methodology

We at Nimblex use our own process called SIMPLE to develop and implement solutions. The SIMPLE implementation approach is used for the successful delivery of more complex solutions. It has been designed to respond to the flexibility offered by Nimblex for the creation of best-fit solutions.

Key benefits of this implementation approach:

  • Clarity: All your questions about who, what, when, where, how, etc. are well defined throughout the methodology.
  • Low Risk: The iterative review process gives our clients ample time to suggest changes, which is also well accommodated by the flexibility Nimblex offers.
  • Fixed Price: Subject to a confirmed scope, this approach help us to successfully implement fixed price projects making it super easy for you to manage your budget obligations.

How and why we developed SIMPLE

SIMPLE differs from other methodologies because it has been designed to fit the flexibility offered by Nimblex.

It is also a blend of the well-known application creation methodologies, Agile and Waterfall. It is our way of delivering projects and over the years has proven to be a winning recipe for the delivery of Nimblex applications of all levels of complexity.

The main aim is to simplify, standardise and then to digitise. The SIMPLE journey will help our clients to achieve these goals.

Over time, we have experimented with various processes for managing projects.

  1. Ad-hoc
  2. Agile
  3. Bringing in elements of the waterfall model

The Agile process proved to be difficult to follow on a fixed schedule and budget.
We found that vanilla waterfall does not take appropriate advantage of Nimblex’s level of flexibility and time reduction during implementation.

For these reasons we follow a methodology related to the traditional waterfall model with some variations:

  • Waterfall is the base.
  • A phase of wireframing implementation in the Requirements phase is added.
  • Implementation is performed in short iterations (approximately 2-3 weeks) before giving back to the client for feedback.
  • Implementation time is reduced when compared to custom IT implementation projects.

The SIMPLE Process

  • Stage 1: Introduction to the Project (Guide)
  • Stage 2: Requirements (Guide)
  • Stage 3: Build (Guide)
  • Stage 4: Launch (Guide)

Our Process.

We offer an alternative to expensive custom software solutions that take a long time to develop and install. Our flexible, low-code Nimblex platform is easily configurable.
