Why choose
Kickstart?

Moving systems critical to your business, especially if you’re moving to the cloud for the first time is usually a painful, slow and expensive process.

No one wants down time in their business, which is why it’s often difficult to take that first step to make the change – even if that means living with the headaches of outdated and expensive systems.

That’s why we created KickStart.

Once you get the information to us, we’ll have you setup, trained and live in ONE WEEK! yes really.

• Super speedy implementation. Less downtime, less lost earnings.

• You’ll be up and running in a week, so you can take advantage of better processes and productivity, so you can start saving money sooner.

• You’ll have a fully future-proofed ERP system that can grow with you as a business as and when you need to expand.

• No expensive features you don’t need, just the core setup you want, and then you can add on new features and packs whenever you and your business are ready.

• One system, to manage and run your ENTIRE business. No more trying to get different systems to play nicely together, no more trying to integrate other platforms into Sage or Xero, with Business Central, it’s all self contained in one system.

FAQs

Answers to common questions.

What data will I need to provide?

You will need to provide us with your Customers, Vendors (Suppliers) and Bank Accounts.

How do I get started with data templates?

As soon as you’re signed up you’ll be provided the data templates to complete. These are Excel spreadsheets with some clever business behind them that allows them to be imported into Business Central. A helpful walkthrough is provided alongside to make this process as easy as possible. If you can extract your Customer and Vendors out of your current system, it’s more of a column reshuffling than anything else and should take a couple of hours. 

Can I view an example of the Chart of Accounts in Business Central?

Example Chart of Accounts listed (Download or pop out as it may be 100-150 lines long).

What if I want to provide my own Chart of Accounts?
  • In order to get you up and running so quickly a “fixed” Chart of Account is required. You can add as many additional G/L account codes as you like once you’re live (you may have some extra Expense accounts you wish to add), but G/L accounts that are linked to other ledgers in the system are fixed.
  • If you need to maintain an existing account structure, no problem. Check out our Packs and Pots Implementations.
What transaction history is brought across from my old system?
  • General Ledger: Opening Balances for each G/L Account (you can post this by previous months if you wish to provide a little extra for reporting)
  • Sales Ledger: Any open items for the Customer (including original dates/document no’s/due dates)
  • Purchase Ledger: Same as above
  • Bank Accounts: An opening balance plus any unreconciled entries
What if an area/module that I want isn't covered in KickStart?
  • The idea of KickStart is to get you going as quickly as possible. Additional consultancy packs can be purchased after go-live to setup/configure/train/support you in this new area
  • If you really need one of these areas on Day 1, that’s no worries – take a look at our Packs and Pots implementations.
Can I add extra data such as G/L accounts/Customer/Vendors after my data has been imported?

The data and system is yours. Once Business Central has been setup/configured you can add extra data as necessary, whenever you like.

If I sign-up for KickStart how soon can I have my KickStart week?

Data needs to be with us a week before your KickStart week.  Generally we’d say to give yourselves at least a week for data, so if you signed up on a Monday and data was done for that Friday, your KickStart week could be as soon as just 2 weeks away! Ultimately though it’s flexible and the KickStart week should be booked at a time where you can give it your full attention. 

What if I don't provide my data on time?

If you know you’re going to be busy, make sure you book your KickStart week to give you ample time to sort out your data. We’re all booked in to make sure everything happens on time, so if the deadline is missed it’s likely your KickStart week will have to be moved. Dependent on availability this may be multiple weeks. Moral of the story – don’t miss the data deadline! 

When should I 'Go-Live'?

After your KickStart week you can use Business Central from the next day. However, most people will wait and complete month-end on their old system – transfer the opening balances/items – and then start on Business Central from the new month.

What if my Kick-Start week is in the middle or the beginning of the month?

If there’s a gap between when your KickStart week ends and the beginning of the next month (your planned Go-Live), this just means you have more time for having a test and a play with Business Central. We’ll ensure you have a “Sandbox” company that you can train in up until (and after) Go-Live.
