Re/Implementing an effective Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System
(Maximizing business results through IT-enabled processes)

Workshop Date: 2017-08-18

Whether you are about to implement, are implementing or have implemented an ERP system and want to maximize business results, this workshop is designed to help participants learn HOW TO IMPLEMENT a successful ERP system. A successful ERP implementation provides companies with: lower cost, lower inventory, increased product availability, improved customer service, increased volume, and higher profits.

ERP systems provide companies a competitive advantage by integrating data and streamlining and accelerating information flows. Data integration enables companies with the information to run the business. Moreover, ERP systems provide key information to make executive decision quicker and surface issues early on before they become major problems. The rich functionality of the ERP system has been the major reason why many companies rush into ERP implementation.

While ERP systems have proved capable of improving the quality and availability of management information where none previously existed, each implementation is unique. In fact, the Gartner group predicts that there is an 80% chance that 50% of enterprises will spend twice as much time and cost as originally planned for, and 70% chance that less than 25% of the ERP projects will deliver monetary benefits that exceeds cost of implementation.

Admittedly, implementing an ERP system is not an extension of past experiences. Users who have been used to run legacy systems found out that ERP systems require more formal procedures, strong coordination with other functional groups, and high data accuracy. And while an ERP package is quite flexible when bought, it becomes increasingly inflexible as the business rules and policies are defined in the system during the implementation.

If implementing an ERP system is difficult and carries a lot of risks, is there a way to control or reduce the risks? Fortunately, there are the pioneers who have successfully implemented ERP systems. You can call it best practice, current best approach, implementation framework, or secrets of implementation, but what is more important is that these technologies are now available to guide companies to successfully implement ERP not only from a technical standpoint but from a business standpoint.
