5 Ways to Avert an ERP Disaster

There are many benefits to implementing a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system at your business. However, there are valid reasons as to why one would be hesitant to do so as it can be a very stressful time for everyone involved. There are certain steps that businesses both large and small can take in order to make the time less stressful and prevent an ERP disaster.

  1. Get Everyone on board – Explain to your team all of the benefits of implementing the new system and how it is going to improve the daily workflow.
  2. Take Advantage of Implementation Services – These implementation services were created to help ease with the transition process.
  3. Choose the right software for your company – What works for one company may not work for another. Research the system and discuss it with your team before making an overall  decision.
  4. Customization isn’t Always Better – Sometimes going overboard with customization can have disastrous consequences and even more difficult to fix the problem.
  5. Create a Realistic and Flexible Timeframe – Most ERPs take at least two weeks to set-up, so plan ahead and don’t rush through it.
