How to make ERP software implementation successful?

 

ERP implementation is an important part after the ERP installation. There are various things you can do to make the implementation of an ERP system successful.

Following are the important ways that will help you to implement ERP successfully :

>> Training is the main part under ERP implementation. Prepare a real training schedule and ensure that the users get sufficient amount of training to get familiar with the system.

>> Ensure that while migrating or transferring the data, you give sufficient time and ample resources to handle the data migration.

>> Also ensure all possible sources of data that you have to migrate to is properly identified. This will help in smooth flow of business activities. The old or stale information should be brushed out and not relocated.

>> Short down your competitors to a few top competitors. This has to be done after thorough evaluation of different ERP vendors. Also, the ERP vendor should be ready to share about the training, time spent on project, resource allotment, etc. And enable you to judge how sensible they are.

>> Keep some probability of increased budget while implementing ERP. Have a flexible budget as the cost of implementing the system may vary.

>> Don’t forget to involve the end user in the process. They will gain sharp observation as well as they will have a important part in the implementation phase
.
>> Last but not the least, do not purchase more ERP than you require on the assumption that you'll develop into it and don't aim to manage with a bundle that doesn't address your issues. While it's vital to have headroom to develop in your ERP system, it's similarly important not to overbuy. Instead, search for an item more suitable to your business needs.
