How to select right ERP?
Cost Benefit Analysis
The cost of ERP implementation versus the benefit derived post implementation is a critical factor for consideration. An ERP should help overcome the cost and continue to pay dividends for years to come.
Business Specific Requirements Implementation
Although the basic operation model is standard in every industry vertical, there are exceptions that make yours’ unique. An ERP should account for and cater to each exception and meet the precise requirements of your business.
Unrealistic Implementation Expectations
ERP sales representatives often understate the level of resources required to close the deal. Therefore, many companies fail to budget adequate time, money, resources and external consulting support to make the project successful.
An ERP consists of multiple modules. However, a business should limit the scope of the implementation to the module(s) needed to meet its operational goals. An attempt to overachieve can lead to failure.
Cost of Implementation
ERP implementation can be a long and expensive process. Businesses should identify the deliverables and relevant cost implications for development and deployment of various modules along with the timeline. Cost of ownership of the required hardware system is a onetime expense, however the cost of up gradation and maintenance should be carefully considered as well. Additionally, salaries of IT managers and trained operators will remain a recurring cost.
Employee Feedback on the ERP
Your employees will be the key stakeholders impacted by the ERP implementation. Consequently, employees from every department should preview the product to ensure their respective requirements and concerns are addressed.
Selection of the ERP Vendor
Technology and business process implementation are generally the pillars to short list ERP vendors. However, the credibility of the vendor and testimonials to back the service quality should not be discounted.
Long Term Planning
Although the primary criteria for ERP selection will be the current business requirements, future enhancements and requirements should also be considered and relevant provision should be maintained in the ERP.
Post Implementation Support
A lot of issues arise once an organization starts using the implemented ERP system. Unless the issues are addressed appropriately and in a timely manner, the ERP cannot function smoothly
