Managing ERP Implementation Projects to Deliver Increased ROI
Thursday August 22, 2013

Study highlights importance of adopting a solid strategy and selecting a reliable ERP Implementation partner when it comes to Enterprise Resource Planning Implementation projects.

Enterprise Resource Planning systems are vital to those businesses that are looking for a business management solution that can scale out across the growing enterprise. ERP systems link up powerful modules and tools to integrate Accounts Data with CRM and Business Intelligence.

Making the jump from an entry level accounting system to an ERP system requires a carefully considered Implementation plan and without putting together a full scale project plan and resource allocation plan, you run the risk of jeopardising overall project success.

The Aberdeen Group’s industry report ‘Managing ERP Implementation Projects to Deliver Increased ROI’ highlights the top pressures faced by organisations during an ERP Implementation project.

Taking on a new ERP System does require an initial investment in terms of money and time from your organisation to complete project goals and attend system training, but ERP Implementation partners are here to guide you through the process and plan the best route forward to help deliver a long term ROI.

At Oakley we undertake a Customer Requirements Analysis (CRA) at the start of an ERP Project Implementation to run through and map out your existing business processes and create a project plan with timescales and resources required.

This provides a comprehensive project plan and helps us work with you to transition your enterprise over to a Sage mid market ERP system such as Sage 200 and Sage 300 ERP.

For advice on an ERP Implementation process contact us on 01268 724005.
