This year at ECi Macola Evolve there will be several customer-led sessions where you can hear first-hand experiences of upgrading from previous ECi Macola solutions to ECi Macola 10. These customers are prepared to share specific benefits they are receiving as a result of the upgrade, as well as the nitty-gritty details about the upgrade process itself.

Customer-led sessions Include:

How Wastequip, LLC Prepared for a Successful & Seamless Upgrade to ECi Macola 10
Paul Thomas, Director of Enterprise Applications, Wastequip, LLC
Jim Widner, Senior Business Analyst, Wastequip, LLC

Typically, software version upgrades are viewed with equal parts anticipation and FEAR. In years past, Wastequip almost resigned itself to the fact that there would be two to three weeks of business disruption post-upgrade, as IT and business users “discovered” changes in system functionality or new bugs. In preparation for the upgrade from ECi Macola ES to ECi Macola 10, Wastequip IT overhauled the process for testing ECi Macola 10 and raised the commitment level of business stakeholders to “certify” acceptance of ECi Macola 10 and readiness for the upgrade.

The result: Eight ECi Macola ES instances (with hundreds of users) were upgraded over a single weekend. Normal business activity commenced on Monday morning with almost NO user disruptions – and full stable operations by Tuesday.

In this session the Wastequip team will describe:

  • Lessons learned from prior upgrades
  • New processes introduced
  • Third party considerations (Avalara, Wisys, Crystal)
  • Post implementation user care
  • Benefits from being on ECi Macola 10
