How Important is ERP implementation?


Eresource ERP believes that ‘A product is as good as it is Implemented’. eresource ERP Works on 5D’s which are:Define, Design,Develop,Deploy, Deliver

Define: This first phase begins during the sales process and then continues post-sale. During this period, the project team will be created. There will be initial meetings and documentation developed as the team works to identify current issues and potential solutions. An important part of this phase is constructing the project plan, which will serve as a guide throughout the rest of the project.

Design: Here we are talking about how will the new enterprise-wide system look like and how will it be used in the organization? In the ERP Design phase, the project team and implementation team will be working out the various configurations for the new system, defining roles, and documenting standard procedures

Development: The purpose of the development phase is to prepare the entire system for going live. This includes activities such as completing any necessary customizations, developing user trainings, and importing data. With ERP implementations, like any custom software development projects – “First, Solve the problem. Then, write the code.”

Deployment: The project team and implementation team will assess the situation and make the final go or no-go decision. Prior to going live, the final data will be loaded and validated. The project team will train other employees who will then start working in the new system, and completely stop using the old one.

Eresource ERP implementation life cycle focus on the ERP project which is carried out to make ERP up and running. ERP project is likely to go through different phases like any other project.Most often these phases do not necessarily depend on one another in a sequence, i.e. one phase might start before previous phase has finished.Also all phases that will be discussed may not be applicable in all cases.When the company has decided to implement the ERP the search for the convenient and suitable ERP package begins.The objective is to find the package that is flexible enough to meet the company’s need.To choose the best system, the identification of the system that meets the business needs, and that matches the business profile. Some important points to be kept in mind while evaluating ERP software include:Flexibility and scalability,Complexity,User friendliness,Quick implementation. An ERP implementation life cycle refers to the distinct stages in which an organization carries out an ERP implementation. Typically, we advise mid-market manufactures to move through the following seven stages:

Pre-Implementation
Project Planning
Product Education
Design Configuration
Development and Test
Go-Live
Post-Implementation
