ERP Benefits

What can an ERP system do for you?

An ERP system is a business management software that enables organizations to use one system to manage business processes. Companies that use multiple systems to manage their processes can experience inaccurate data reporting, downtime and poor inventory management and planning. An ERP system can resolve these issues with:

  • Streamlined workflows and processes
  • Better financial planning and management
  • Improved data security
  • Business resource tracking
  • Reduction in costs – on average, companies see a return of $7 or more for every dollar spent on implementing an ERP system

Is It Time for ERP?

Is now the time, and cloud or on-premise?

So, is it time for your business to implement an ERP system? Ask yourself a few questions. How accurate is your data now? Is your company growing? Are your systems connected, or disjointed? Are your customers satisfied?

If your answers reveal challenges or gaps in how your business functions, it might be time for an ERP implementation project to solve your issues and allow company leaders to focus on growing.

Some companies can’t make the move to the cloud fast enough, while others may not be ready. You’ll need to decide whether an on-premise solution makes more sense for your business, or whether a cloud-based system is more beneficial. Each has its pros and cons, and weighing those will help you make the best choice for your company’s specific needs.

Success Factors

Make your project a success

You’ve gotten this far, and perhaps you’re ready to begin your ERP project. Once you’ve chosen the right implementation partner and believe in their methodology, assess your side. Do you have key employees on your team? Selecting your best, as well as a project champion, is a necessity.

Are you and your data ready? Not being prepared at the start will lead to problems later. Many times, it’s not the technology that sinks a project. Don’t leave some the most time-consuming tasks to the end.

Have a good roadmap. Your implementation partner will have a methodology they follow, but you need a structured plan as well. Be sure to create a realistic approach for your project, and communicate your company’s specific needs to your partner. Your ERP system will need to function according to the requirements of your business, and you know it best. Keep the lines of communication open, and know how to measure that success before you begin to see it.
