Rolling out a powerful ERP system is just half the battle won, as the real challenge lies in implementation and adoption of the same in long run.

During the implementation stage, it is important for a company’s employees to acknowledge the fact as to why the legacy or traditional system is failing to keep up and why the company is moving to a new ERP software. This might include bringing in people from all the departments. As a natural human tendency, people tend to resist change and might find it a bit difficult to digest the fact. Irrespective of all such misconceptions, it ought to be confronted head-on. It is imperative for business leaders and managers to demonstrate and explain as how a new ERP solution can make lives easier.

The key to deriving optimum value from your ERP investment is to get the system up and running into the hands of your people, who will then proceed to using the data and information generated to make sound and critical business decisions. At Sage Software Solutions Pvt. Ltd, we abide by the following tricks to ensure a smooth and seamless ERP adoption.

  

  1. Employee accordance

To reap the most from your ERP system, you ought to get your people to adopt the methods defined in the solution. If employees in different departments using the ERP system disagree with the methods outlined in the solution compared to the current or existing system they have used, they will most likely resist using the new system or might ask for customising the solution. This is where ERP solutions tend to fall back.

 

  1. Engagement

Often, the top management rolls out new programs and policies without involving company’s employees. Optimum ERP adoption is possible only if all the users and stakeholders are engaged in the process right from the start. Getting hands-on experience with the software at early stages can help curb fears among employees, who show signs of possible resistance.

 

  1. Prompt deployment

ERP deployments can fail miserably due to time delays between announcement and training on the system. This is imperative for updates and maintenance of the system as well. Businesses ought to streamline their deployment and development processes to make them consistent and predictable.

 

  1. Maximising the users

Data in an ERP solution should never be confined to a limited number of people. The ingenious value of ERP solutions and the data it generates can be leveraged only if the system is extensively used across the organisation. With the growth in the number of remote employees, deploying an ERP solution that is compatible with mobile devices is a boon.

 

  1. Full integration

Your ERP software ought to connect and integrate with multiple enterprise apps such as CRM, HR software, etc. An integrated ERP solution delivers 360-degree visibility and insights into key business operations thus, saving significant amount of time and resources.
