Enterprise Resource Planning

Enterprise Resource Planning

Overview

Enterprise Resource Planning is an essential nerve system for any organization. ERP systems bring capability to organizations to integrate all disparate systems in one platform if it is designed implemented properly. ERP implementation or optimization is a key initiative in almost all the organizations take up.

Costing anywhere from hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars, and requiring hundreds of man hours to implement, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are huge investments of money, resources and time. And while a successful ERP implementation can help your organization streamline workflow and cut costs, a poorly planned and implemented ERP rollout can severely cost organizations, in terms of lost productivity and delays.

Top mistake in ERP implementation are poor planning of initiative, poor selection of vendors, not defining the requirements and expectations clearly, not having right people in the team, not setting priorities, under or overestimating time and resources required, not investing enough on training and change management, not understanding the importance of the data, and not having right post implementation support.

We help organizations to have smooth ERP journey

Designing ERP initiative

We help organizations to define ERP initiative in alignment with business strategy. We help in mobilizing the senior management using the tools developed through our extensive ERP implementation experience and come up with list of high-level expectations. This is very important step senior management should take up. Since the senior management is either don’t have enough experience in such exercise or they are busy with other major initiatives, we are willing to complement their time and know how.

ERP program and project management

We help organizations to have robust program and project management support through our proven methodologies. Program and project management is our core competency. We design the program based on strategic priorities set during initiative phase and carefully plan the projects by considering the organizational constraints such as resources, funds, and priorities.

 

Vendor selection

Select right consortium of vendors is another daunting task. There is always confusion in selecting the type of solution and vendors. Senior managers always face dilemma to choose best of breed solution to standard horizontal solution. We can help organizations to go through systematic process to start and end the vendor selection. Our steps include documenting business blueprint, writing RFP and engaging the potential vendor consortia, selection criteria, and contracting.

Change and talent management

People are integral part of ERP implementation. Almost all people in the organization are influenced directly or indirectly by ERP implementation. This is a tremendous opportunity to upgrade people skills and develop future leaders. We help organizations through carefully designed change management and talent management methodologies.
