Implementation & Integration
How to Launch MentorAPM & Integrate it with Existing Systems
"Enterprise software implementation is my favorite." — said no one, ever.
We’ve been leading projects like this for decades, and we know how it usually goes. You start with a lot of excitement and energy, you spend a lot of time designing processes (that will be ignored), the project drags, user fatigue kicks in, and millions of dollars and many months or years later, the project limps across the finish line.
This is one of the primary reasons we built MentorAPM. We believe you deserve a better experience than that. We want you to avoid an 18-24 month project that costs millions and ends in user frustration and fatigue.
Designed for better implementations
Everything about MentorAPM has been designed for a better customer implementation experience from the beginning. We aim to get you fully up and running in half the time or less, with considerably lower costs. And a lot less pain.
MentorAPM Quick Start Implementation
MentorAPM is a cloud based SaaS solution that allows you to plug in, subscribe and start using the application on your existing devices. SaaS solutions simplify the implementation process and offer far greater flexibility for the user than on-premise installations. Software updates and upgrades are delivered instantaneously and hassle-free. MentorAPM uses AWS and employs the highest industry security protocols.
Our implementation plans are based on Agile principles of iterative development and short cycles. Instead of spending months planning prior to deployment, we want you to be working with the software as quickly as possible under real conditions. We will then collaborate with your cross-functional teams to frequently review and adapt processes to how you actually need them to work under real use circumstances.
Many system elements in MentorAPM are pre-configured, including industry-vetted asset libraries, workflows, Preventive Maintenance plans, asset condition and failure profiles. These pre-configured libraries give you a jump-start based on reliable industry experience and asset history. They are also fully customizable to reflect your specific utility history and needs.
Data Migration and Conversion
Our Data Store adaptor allows any object in your system to be accurately matched to MentorAPM’s architecture. Our data migration paths set up safe passage that will secure your data and maintain its integrity. We can also help you rescue asset data and work history trapped in obsolete systems.
Our published Restful APIs streamline integrations with your other enterprise applications, dramatically reducing implementation time. Unlike many legacy providers, you are not required to buy any platforms or expensive applications to facilitate the transition from your old system to MentorAPM.
Some Important Technical Stuff for your IT Team
(‘Cause they’re gonna ask)
MentorAPM was built with ease of integration in mind first. In fact our suite of mobile apps and web applications are built on the very same APIs customers can freely access for integration, custom applications, and reporting. MentorAPM adheres to standard REST protocols over HTTPS. This means that developers do not need to install libraries or additional software in order to take advantage of our REST API design. It is notable for its incredible layer of flexibility. Since data is not tied to methods and resources, REST has the ability to handle multiple types of calls, return different data formats and even change structurally with the correct implementation of hypermedia. This freedom and flexibility inherent in our REST API design allows us to meet your diverse needs. Unlike SOAP, REST is not constrained to XML, but instead can return XML, JSON, YAML or any other format depending on what you request. And unlike RPC, users aren't required to know procedure names or specific parameters in a specific order.
