Reduce the Cost of ERP Software Implementation with Detailed Timelines

Visit Website View Our Posts

As a businessman, I like schedules; I like knowing when things are going to get done and by whom. Things just get done on time when people are held accountable. In my line of work, many processes require timelines and I definitely see the value of them in any situation, especially ERP implementations.

There are many costs associated with ERP implementations as it is a complex process. The implementation process should include all departments for an effective and successful deployment and everyone in your company should be patient. Including the insight and collaboration of all the people in your organization with different schedules and unique needs usually results in delays for most software implementations.  We find that the more detailed the timelines, the smoother an ERP implementation can be. This requires a lot of coordination between various members. It involves core team members, managers, CEO’s, and of course the ERP consultant helping you implement your software. Proper coordination, interaction, and communication are all essential and necessary to ensure that it does not take too long to implement your ERP Software.

We often see clients more focused on the end result and less focused on the steps it actually takes to get there. Creating concise timelines and clearly communicating the importance of them to your team sets the stage for a smooth implementation and helps ensure the work gets done on time and within your original budget.  So when you’re budgeting for your ERP software implementation, don’t underestimate the power of timelines.
