5 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your ERP Implementation
To guarantee a successful software implementation, certain steps need to be considered when choosing or deploying your ERP solution. This will decrease the risk of failure and ensure that your ERP software works as per your expectations.
No matter what stage you are in, early phase of researching or further into the planning phase, here are 5 suggestions that can positively affect your ERP performance:
1. Select the Right ERP Solution
You can adhere to the widely used practices when choosing the right ERP like appointing the right people to your selection panel, developing a roadmap, considering total cost of ownership (TCO) and timeline, choosing the right vendor, and determining quality of service. They will help you prepare for your ERP selection and will make the process less daunting.
2. Define Requirements and Specifications
The appointed panel of people and all stakeholders involved will contribute to defining the finer requirements and features of the ERP. You may also consider employing external sources to help you organise your processes like an experienced consultancy that will assist in evaluating important components. Once all that’s done, the selected ERP partner will help you determine which functions of the ERP you should deploy in the first instance, and whether there should be future phases.
3. Oversee Configuration and Implementation
You may experience challenges with migrating your data, project managing your deployment, meeting budgets/deadlines, and adapting the whole team to the changes. Don’t worry – the right ERP partner will support you through the journey by ensuring smooth transition. It is important that you allocate sufficient resources for the changes to take place and have enough time just in case things don’t go as planned.
4. Provide Training
Once deployed, training will be useful to maximise the benefits of the ERP software and familiarise your team with important system features. In addition to using user manuals and free training materials that are widely available online at no additional cost, professional services support can also be offered to you.
5. Customisations and Technical Support
Your business may require additional functionalities and customisations that will improve the overall system performance and make the system tailored to your preferences. For an optimal result, make sure your selected partner provides a level of technical expertise to suit your business, and that they offer additional technical support and consulting services where needed.
