ERP Implementation: How To Get It Right

So you’ve chosen your solution, selected the partner you want to work with, gone through and agreed with all the negotiations, and now you’re all set to start implementing your new business management system. This is where the fun begins.

ERP implementations are rarely straightforward to complete. When you’re deploying an end-to-end solution, such as SAP Business One, there are many cogs in the wheel that all have to align to get the solution firing on all cylinders. But don’t let that put you off. The reward will be a powerful business management solution that will help your business innovate, grow and boost profits.

Why ERP Implementations Fail

Any company that has implemented a new solution will tell you to expect some bumps in the road. And that’s perfectly fine. Certain problems implementing a system don’t always result in project failure.

Projects only fail when there’s conflict. Either internally when you do not have complete buy-in from senior leaders or when there’s a conflict with your chosen partner. If the problem is internal, then this is where things get tricky. If, for example, a new CEO or Financial Director comes on board halfway through the project, they may have ideas of their own that may not include your preferred solution or partner.

Hopefully, you’ve chosen to work with an experienced partner who has the right team working with you. This knowledge of having been there and got the t-shirt will get you over the line.

What Is An ERP Implementation Cycle?

Each implementation project is different. There are no set timelines or schedules for these types of deployments. You’ll have a go-live date set with your partner when you want everything up and running.

When organisations initially consider a new solution, it’s either because the challenges they are facing with their existing systems continue to grow or because they have a compelling event. If it’s the latter, your partner should be aware of this from the outset. Projects which are rushed through often result in lots of issues when systems are live.
