Switching software made easy

We understand your fears and concerns about switching software providers, but when you partner with Osprey you’re not alone. You’ll have an assigned implementation team, a project manager with you on go-live day and priority access to support during your post go-live period to ensure you’re set up for success.

Our implementation process

1. Welcome session

In the welcome session you’ll meet your implementation team, and we’ll begin to better understand your business – what you hope to achieve, you firm’s goals, your current processes. We’ll take you through the key project stages and outline initial expectations and requirements to get the project off to the best possible start. We’ll also discuss options for importing existing data and how you want to go live.

2. Project planning

This is where the details begin, and a full project plan and scope can be created. Data migration, system configuration and detailed project processes will be discussed and agreed. We recap a demonstration of the software to help familiarise the team with the system, we go through our important fact-finding question pack and plan each users’ training requirements that will form your firm’s training plan.

3. System configuration

Using the information we gathered during the project planning stage, our team will set up your database and configure all the necessary settings, features, and functionality specific to your firm. Part of our initial setup includes preparing your letterheads, two standard documents and your bill templates to get you started.

4. Data migration

We customise the data migration based on the format and complexity of the data you wish to import. We have migrated data from a wide range of case management solutions, for hundreds of firms, so you can be confident your data is in safe hands. Before the data is imported it goes through verification and import procedures for quality assurance.

5. Training

Your firm will have access to our training site so you can feel confident navigating the system, which can alleviate any pre-go-live worries. Your agreed training plan that will take users through role-based online training courses to help them understand the fundamentals of the system. We can also arrange on-site training days and you’ll have 24/7 access to the Osprey Academy, how-to guides and tutorial videos.

6. Go live

You’ll have priority access to our implementation and support team when you go-live to ensure any issues or challenges are ironed out and questions can be answered quickly. Depending on the size and complexity of your firm, you could also choose to go live with elements of Osprey separately. The choice is yours so you can be confident your migration meets the goals of your firm.

Post-implementation support & guidance 

It’s important to us that Osprey is working hard for your firm, so our customer success team regularly check-in to update you on the latest features, gather feedback on your experience, and help you get the most from the software to better meet your goals.

All Osprey users also have access to unlimited telephone-support, online training, and 24/7 access to the Osprey Academy so you always have the guidance and support you need to make the most of the software.  

Supporting you through your software migration

We know switching software or implementing new systems is scary. Often, it’s the fear of change and the unknown that stops firms from implementing solutions that’ll boost performance, so we ensure you and your team are supported in getting up and running. We operate a ‘no question is a stupid question’ policy so everyone, no matter their technical knowledge, background or role, can feel comfortable and confident in using Osprey and are optimistic about the benefits it can bring. When you partner with Osprey you’re not alone, you’ll have an assigned implementation team, a project manager with you on go-live day and priority access to support during your post go-live period to ensure you’re set up for success.
