The context & challenges

The project scope was the migration of a large cooperative’s information system to another companie's portfolio. The activity was driven by transfering the leasing activities of the source company to the larger group comapanie's systems. The outstanding amounts of the real estate leasing had been purchased and transferred as part of the project; that said outstanding amounts were supposed to be managed by a Service Bureau from the larger group company. Our objective was to help scope the project and ensure its subsequent implementation (merger of entities, implementation of the information system for the new business, migration of contract portfolios).
