[prMac.com] Hendersonville, North Carolina - Why do so many ERP implementations go wrong, and how can you ensure your ERP delivers the ROI you're expecting?
At AcctVantage ERP, we've been implementing small business software successfully for 25 years. In that time we've learned what it takes to ensure success. Believe it or not, it's really not all that complicated-if you know what you're doing.
Here are a few factors that we have found to be critical to an ERP implementation's success:
Be realistic about schedule: Getting into your new ERP system is not something you want to rush. In our experience, 30 days is a absolute minimum. You can do it if you don't plan on importing a lot of historical data (most companies do) and if you can accommodate the training very quickly. But a more realistic time line for implementation is 60 to 90 days. This allows for the proper organization of incoming data, installation and people's schedules for training.
Get guaranteed results: At AcctVantage ERP we guarantee our implementations. By working strictly under a fixed bid arrangement, we share the risk with you inherent in any ERP implementation. We don't ask you to sign a blank check, or take our word that you will be up and running for the cost we estimated. We fix the cost, so we're equally motivated as you are to make sure you get up and running successfully. It's win-win by design.
Participate: You are busy. Your business is most likely thriving, which is why you want to implement a new ERP system. But, in order to be successful, you must participate fully in the implementation process. It's not something you can delegate, no matter how much you wish you could! Sure, it's a team effort and it probably won't be just you, but your team needs clear leadership and direction through this process. We bring a lot to the table, but we can't just step in and tell you how to run your business. You are the expert in your business. We are the experts on our software. By working together we all get the best of both worlds, and a successful implementation.
We've been implementing ERP software for small businesses for a long time. We know what it takes for you to be successful, and we apply this hard earned knowledge for every new AcctVantage ERP customer.
Give us a call to see if we might be the right solution for you. We love serving our customers and are happy to speak with you and help you regardless of whether we end up earning your business or not. We're here to serve.
