Enterprisewide Resource Planning is the word of the future. Every organization worldwide is considering the option of deploying ERP solutions to ensure productivity, lower costs and increase profit margins. It is proved across the globe that ERP does bring in discipline within the organization, brings more focus to business areas, reduces cost of operations, facilitates planning, helps in forecasting business trends, analysing and developing new revenue streams and expanding the operations of an organization.
One has to have a broader outlook towards ERP. ERP solution cannot provide all features in one shot or at one time. Secondly, an organization which has been in existence since long would be having legacy systems already in place handling the basic accounting and personnel functions. When deputing a new ERP solutions factors of legacy integration, data migration and re-training end users have to be considered.
A stage wise approach is required in implementation of ERP solution. Secondly, it becomes all the more important to analyse in advance as to which functions organizations will need. It is important to understand that ERP solution should be working according to organizational requirements and not otherwise. Projects fail due to myths. Though change is required, it should not lead to stoppage of operations which in turn would lead a profit making organization to become a loss making entity.
It is hence important that all factors are considered before zeroing on an ERP solution besides cost. Growel states that, ERP implementation planning is more crucial than the planning it offers!
