If there is an Implementation project, the Customer will be assigned to an ENABLEHR Implementation Project Manager who will work closely with the Customer to configure enableHR to strategically align with the Customer’s own unique business processes, documentation and HRIS requirements.
A project strategy and plan will be developed to ensure an efficient and effective implementation of enableHR and will confirm the scope, tasks, roles and responsibilities relating to the Customer’s project. The plan will identify the Customer’s priorities and the associated timeframes.
The following project controls are necessary to ensure an efficient and effective implementation of enableHR with minimal impact on quality, time and cost to deliver.
- Length of Projects – The length of projects are not permitted to extend beyond 6 months, except under exceptional circumstances. All requests require prior authorisation from enableHR. If approved, an extension of 2 months will be applied together with an up-front fee for this additional time period. If the project is not complete within this period, the project will close and all remaining hours will be forfeited;
- Usage of Hours – If any hours are remaining after your project has closed, these hours must be used within a 12-month period from the date the project closed;

- Change in Client’s Project Managers - Where there is a change in the Customer’s Project Manager, the onus is upon the Customer to provide a comprehensive handover of the project and up skill the member to ensure that there is sufficient technical understanding of enableHR’s functionality, the configuration process and project management approach. Any additional time taken by enableHR’s Project Manager to undertake this on behalf of the client will be charged;
- Re-Configuration – As part of the implementation project, a rigorous scoping and design process is undertaken prior to the technical configuration. Requests for change during the testing phase should be minimal to none. If there are requests to fundamentally change what has already been configured, the additional time taken by enableHR’s Project Manager to undertake this further change will be charged.
