ERP is more about people and outcomes than it is about technology

One of the main reasons that ERP implementations are unsuccessful is because of poor product selection. In many cases executives are trying to put square pegs into round holes with decisions based on a poor selection methodology. Truly independent, objective advice will ensure that shortlisted software is a good match for your people and business objectives.

The other key reason for poor implementation results is the misalignment between strategic objectives and the tactical methods used to achieve those objectives. Although it is common for a system to be changed for reasons relating to the technology, rather than the delivery of improved business conditions.

If a new system does not deliver improved business outcomes then the project should not have been undertaken to begin with.

The important connection between business strategy, supply chain tactics and a new system can’t be ignored, although these three elements are often out of alignment. Truly independent and experienced advice can provide a clear roadmap to outstanding improvements in a business. 

When an effective ERP strategy is implemented well by a software partner/vendor who is a good cultural fit for the biusiness, it has the capacity to shoot that business into a completely new universe.

If an independent, objective ERP Consultant could help you take the next step towards achieving your business goals, get in touch today for an obligation-free conversation.
