The goal of Core Radar Implementation is to train your Superadmins to complete all daily, weekly, and monthly tasks necessary to maintain your Radar database. Consider who from your organization will be the main point of contact for Radar Onboarding. R365 highly recommends having all the Radar Superadmins for your company participate in the implementation process.
This article reviews some key ideas and topics related to the Radar Superadmin and their time with a R365 Radar Implementation Coach.
What does a Radar Superadmin mean?
A Radar Superadmin has the following qualities:
- Has intimate knowledge of current processes and pain points.
- Has access to documents: POS Reports, Payroll Reports, Order Guides, Purchasing Reports, Recipe Books, and current Inventory Count Templates.
- Has the bandwidth to meet and complete homework. Five hours a week is a good average during setup.
- Can act as a liaison with any third-party software
- Authority to approve billable requests for the database
What to Expect
You can expect the following:
- 3 hours a week setting up Radar.
- A weekly one-hour call with a Radar Coach (a call will not always be needed at different stages of the training process).
- Train the Trainer approach. Your Radar Coach will help train you, so you can train your end users.
- All calls with your coach will be recorded and available to your team.
- Project Management tools that are customer-facing. After the project is complete, your team will continue to have access to train the rest of your team.

Consider the following and be ready to discuss with your Coach:
- What are the main goals you have and how will you measure a successful roll out of Radar?
