5 Tips to make the ERP Implementation a successThe job is only half done, after evaluating your ERP software vendor. Here are some tips to make the implementation of the software a success.

  1. Set your goals, then expectations
    Companies often lack proper objective and scope of their ERP development. Understanding the business requirements is the key to prepare a proper plan to implement the new ERP system. An action without a plan is not likely to yield better results, so it is always better to set goals and then plan the desired results from the new system. Being specific about the features, functions and business processes you want to roll out and about the ROI you wish to achieve will make it easier for you to find an ERP solution that suits you well!
  2. Test, ReTest and Test again
    Don’t forget to test the new system you are planning to invest in, because obviously, you don’t want yourself in a state where you are not able to understand basic functions of the system and regret your decision. Testing helps you avoid under/over customization of the software.
    A pilot testing can help you come up with real queries and will make you understand your requirements better.
  3. Ensure clean data and have a back-up
    Once you want to move your data from on-premise to cloud based ERP, the data not being ‘clean’ might become a nerve-wracking issue. It is nothing, but shows that your data is not of high quality or is not precise. Keeping high standards of data entry, like having correct information in the correct field will ensure a successful implementation of ERP. Even if the software claims high data security standards, it is necessary to keep a back-up for all the data.
  4. Make sure your IT department meets the business line
    Implementation of ERP system is going to affect your whole business, so it is necessary to have a robust IT department, who could rectify the issues which users may find thereafter. It’s more like having a well-trained ERP champion group. Having a top-down approach with the ERP will ensure a very smooth implementation.
  5. Strong business management
    When a business changes its work platform, especially from legacy on-premise to cloud based ERP solutions, the restructuring of the business process and an effective change management is a must. It is also necessary to train the employees about the changes after educating them about its benefits.

Having a smooth ERP implementation is the requirement. Keep these tips in mind and your business will rock the world.
