Enterprise Resource Planning is an essential nerve system for any organization. ERP systems bring capability to organizations to integrate all disparate systems on one platform if they are designed and implemented well. ERP implementation or optimization is a key initiative for almost all the organizations.
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, resources, and time. 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.
We help organizations to define ERP initiatives in alignment with business strategy. We assist in mobilizing the senior management to use the tools developed through our extensive ERP implementation experience and come up with a list of high-level expectations. This is a very important step senior management should take and since they either don’t have enough experience in such exercise or they are occupied with other major initiatives, we are willing to complement their time and do the job for them.
We assist with a robust program and project management support through our proven methodologies. Program and project management are our core competencies. We design the program based on strategic priorities set during the initiative phase and carefully plan the projects by considering the organizational constraints such as resources, funds, and priorities.
Selecting the right consortium of vendors is another daunting task. There is always uncertainty in selecting the type of solution and vendors. Senior managers often face the dilemma to choose the best-of-breed solution to a standard horizontal solution. We can help organizations go through a systematic process to start and end the vendor selection. Our steps include documenting the business blueprint, writing RFP, and engaging the potential vendor consortia, selection criteria, and contracting.
Change and talent management
People are an integral part of any organization and almost everyone is 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.
