Implementation Process Continued Consultant On-Site –Training on Administrative Setup –Training on basic procedures –Converted data will be imported –Assists in the Go-Live
Data Conversion Nearly everything can be converted Cannot convert: –G/L Transactions –Tejas Setups –Lockers (Locker Assingments can convert if you use the same locker #s) –Scheduler/Spa/Facility (yet)
Data Cleanup Here’s your chance to clean up unwanted data. Before the data conversion, make sure all: –Terminated employees are labeled so. –Unused products are labeled Inactive. –Inactive members are labeled as such. –Old membership types have no members tied to them. Make a list of the areas that you want to have deleted and let CSI know about it.
Preparing for Spectrum NG Implement new AP/GL Package Ensure that your CC Merchant Account is with one of the following: –VISANET/VITAL –NOVA –Paymentech Tampa –First Data North/CardNet
Credit Card Processing SpectrumNG uses RiTA software to send CC transactions to your processor. If you are not currently setup for RiTA, then it is necessary to change. Speak with your Merchant Provider, inform them of the move to a new software. Your Merchant Provider will generate a setup form for you with one of the 4 processors supported by SpectrumNG.
Credit Card Processing Submit the setup form to CSI –Larry Rook, Implementation Mgr Once CSI receives it there is a 2-week processing time. CSI will respond with your Merchant Number and RiTA ID Number, and instructions to put in SpectrumNG. Remove and reattach the credit card payment types to ensure the transactions are going to the right bank, then reset Payment Shortcut Keys. Perform a $.01 test transaction to verify everything is working.
