Are you making these ERP Implementation mistakes?

If you are reading this, chances are you must have gone through the first part as well and if not, click here for Part 1.  

In the following series, we are going to continue with another list of commonly made ERP implementation mistakes that leads to failure and subsequent loss to the business.  

So, if you are planning to invest in an ERP solution, make sure you have thought it through, have a well-planned strategy, and are ready for the change that the ERP system will bring in your organization’s workflow. Because as mentioned in the earlier post, if not executed right, it can turn out disastrous for your business.  

  • Training too late 

You need to be prepared well in advance for ERP implementation to ensure that it is a success. And this is only possible when you understand transactions along with the implementor. This will empower your business is able to yield the benefits of the collaborated data migration and implementation. You will find yourself in a challenging position with what’s and whys if you try to understand or train your employees late in the process.  

  • Communication Gap 

We know ERP helps streamline and simplifies all the processes across an organization. Therefore, even a minor communication gap in terms of implementation can prove detrimental to the business and not give the desired output. Before you begin with the implementation, make sure that there is a well-structured communication plan. Your plan should allow and promote keeping everyone across the department on the same page about sharing any information or how are you to take the business ahead.  

  • Not designing a resolution strategy 

We know ERP implementation is a complicated task. Hence there is a high possibility of error or hitting a roadblock. Therefore, it is important to have a resolution strategy in advance if things go haywire. Note down all the plausible issues you might face in the onboarding process. Accordingly, create a resolution plan for the same. This will smoothen the implementation process.  

  • Not conducting testing 

Testing is important to see if the system is performing in accordance with what you had planned. But keep in mind to not just run some generic test. You should create a simulation and see the results in real-time. This will help you identify any issues in the system and fix them at once, ensuring implementation success.  

  • Going by one size fits all approach 

One size fits all approach has never worked and will never work, especially in ERP implementation. Depending upon the industry you serve, you need to customize your ERP implementation strategies for the business need and scalability. But while customization can help you achieve your business goal, it is important to note that over customization can escalate the scope of the projects, leading to loss of operational cost.
