5 phases of an ideal ERP Implementation Model 

Congrats! You were helplessly searching for how to plan your ERP implementation and you found the right place! After hours of research and careful selection, you have picked your ideal ERP. Let’s implement it!  

What is an ERP implementation Project?   

All company areas like finance, human resources, sales, or manufacturing, are impacted by the implementation of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.  

 This process includes planning, setting or modifying, and implementing your ERP system across your entire company. Your business should be well prepared with discussions with external stakeholders before and after the implementation to ensure a smooth transition. This entire process requires a full transfer of all your current data into a brand-new system making it a time consuming yet rewarding process.  

How does this work? 

 To summarize this procedure, it begins with setting up your software, pushing all your financial and transactional data alike and then planning your business processes, and instructing your users in how to utilize the program.  

  1. ROI Analysis – allocate a Budget to calculate the cost of your ERP implementation including how much should it cost, and hidden expenses you may not have foreseen.
  2. Project Kick off – Create an exclusive ERP project team helps decide who will be in charge of making sure your implementation is successful across all departments. The kick-objectives goals are to orient the SPoC to the methodology and coordinate visions, quickly assess the project’s return on investment to confirm its viability and complete the project’s plan. 
  3. Draft an ERP change management strategy, consider how to assist your team as they transition from outdated systems during the deployment.
  4. Invest in Data migration – Start planning on moving your data from old systems to new systems. The Project Leader or a developer will perform this work depending on the volume and complexity of the data to import. The SPoC and the key-users gather the data and prepare the import-ready file in accordance with the Project Leader’s instructions.

  5. Go Live – Create momentum and build excitement around the release. Don’t push the date or be discouraged with issues, the fixing last-minute bugs preparing your staff to be equipped to deal with any issues.
