How Can An Organization Optimize Its ERP Deployment

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a software that allows a company to practice a system of combined applications in order to accomplish the business and automate several back office jobsassociatedwith technology, human resource as well as services. This is the most accepted business management trend by most organisations as it provides proven methodology for business planning, optimal productivity while reducing the cost to company and capitalize on the return on investment (ROI). However, many organisations face myriad challenges while executing the implementation. In this blog, we are going to do a detailed discussion on how an organisation can optimise its ERP deployment.

First of all, one needs to understand the software, what it can do and what it cannot. While implementing the ERP solution, the company should survey the functionality and the features of the solution whether it is suitable for their business plan or not; and then select the ERP software.

Now when they have chosen the software, it’s time to involve the executives and build the correct team. Which means they should set up the group of people who have the technical know-hows to keep the operation moving forward. There should be a core project team which is able to take the leadership as ensuring to fulfil the organisation’s vision, observe the business requirements following the recent market dynamics.

Third step should be review the return of investment (ROI). Any large-scale organisation generally defines business objectives for the ERP operation while processing the business case for the ERP system. Commonly, swift and high-end decisions, authorisation and enhanced efficacies for the end users, greater employee engagement as well as establish a closer relationship with customers, business partners and suppliers are included in the business goal. However, companies should shift their focus to the return of investment for the ERP from the expenditure of the ERP establishment. In this way they can take a close note on the performance measurement.

If the users will not be able to use the ERP solution completely or even at all, do not expect any profit, not even the return. Hence, the end users also need to get familiar with the system and this is the responsibility of the functional team to train the end users. The system including a user friendly interface allows companies to get employees up to speed faster and it is much cheaper.
