Typical ERP Mistakes To Avoid: Part 1

When it comes to your business, the prospect of streamlining processes and saving money is very appealing. SolutionsX realized the need for such goals, and, in 2004, became what is now one of the top ERP companies in the land. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) provides a central platform on which to design and combine all aspects of your company. However, when it comes to ERP programs, many business owners see the prize without taking the proper steps to successfully get there. ERP system implementations can be a long, complicated process. Today, we’ll look at a few common mistakes that people make when working with ERP companies such as ours.

Improper Planning

The phrase “measure twice, cut once” can be more than appropriate when dealing with integration software. Many businesses simply do not plan and prepare enough before starting their ERP implementation process. Having a full, precise picture of your company’s operations is vital for long-term success. This will help the overall transition from beginning to end. Being able to distinguish which sectors need to the most improvement can also be very beneficial when creating an ERP plan. When it comes to enterprise resource planning, there is no such thing as being too prepared!

Picking The Wrong ERP Provider

Many companies face struggles when it comes to picking the right vendor for their unique business needs. Often times, a business will fail to realize it had chosen wrong until it is far too late. Many experts recommend doing your homework to ensure that you find the best ERP supplier possible. Typically, it is suggested that you also do homework during this phase. Reaching out and contacting any ERP vendor’s clients is highly suggested. If they do not want to relinquish any sources to talk with, be wary.

Not Fully Training Employees

Another problem we see in the business world is the improper utilization of key features and processes. Many people are uninformed about a lot of the ERP solutions offered by their new implementation software. After the cost of the whole process (manhours and monetary), every key aspect of each module should be documented and listed in order for fully employ the software. Otherwise, businesses are paying a lot and losing productivity. We’d consider that a lose-lose situation.
