If you are considering incorporating an ERP system into your organization, it is important to start planning the implementation strategy as early as possible.
As you plan the ERP implementation project, you will make several decisions regarding money, staff training, and so on.
Here are some factors to consider when designing an ERP implementation strategy:
First off, consider your company’s finances. Do you have the financial resources to invest in ERP? Implementation is just one part of the process. Your staff will need to be given proper training to ensure they can adopt it successfully.
Along with staff training, additional costs include hardware upgrades, data backup and storage and more.
It is important to understand that implementing an ERP system requires investment. If you cannot invest your time or money in it then you will face many bottlenecks during the implementation process.
ERP systems are not equal. After assessing your business issues and requirements, you need to ensure you’re investing in the right ERP system.
Compare at least four ERP packages to choose one that will provide you what your business needs. Finding the right ERP system requires some research and time. Whatever ERP software you choose, it should suit your corporate objectives, functional and technical requirements. Also, take into consideration your budget and the upgrades and maintenance costs of the system.
Next step, create an implementation schedule. Your ERP system implementation schedule should be realistic and be convenient for everyone on board.
Last but not least, successful implementation of ERP system requires a trained, qualified and dedicated project team. Your team will consist of a project manager, an application analyst, and engineers – among others.
From time to time, your team will need training to make the most of the ERP system. The training sessions can be conducted online or in-person, depending on the preferences and availability of your staff.
