Modern ERP systems ensure the performance of all enterprise functions, despite their type of activity. Now, ERP systems are used both in commercial and nonprofit structures, in governmental and non-governmental organizations.

The installation of an ERP provides standardizing business processes and other services to simplifying and improving reporting, as all information is stored in a single database.

ERP is often erroneously related to as back-office systems, designating that consumers do not interact directly with it. But, ERP performs many functions on a business scale. All functional divisions of the management or production areas are integrated into one system. 

A company that has decided on completing an ERP faces several challenges. The first question faced by a business owner is implementing ERP independently, or it is reasonable to involve external consultants - ERP consulting firms. 

We are confident that for the ERP implementation to be successful, it is better to involve professionals - to hire ERP consultants who have relevant experience. When choosing an ERP consulting services for such a project, it is necessary to responsibly approach this issue because you select a business partner whose responsibility, reliability and professionalism must be high. 

ERP consultants are usually responsible for the initial implementation of ERP. This refinement usually includes additional testing of the ERP, elaboration of the initial stage of implementation, professional advice on improving ERP in the future, system optimization, assistance in creating reports, and extraction of complex data.

The next challenge is how to choose an ERP consultant. Pay attention to:

  • Approaches to training your staff to work with the ERP
  • Support after launching. 
  • Relevant experience of the company
  • Specialists who will be involved in the project. 
  • Price quotation. 

Advantages of using an external ERP consultant:

  • Checking the project results: sometimes, excessive involvement and staying inside the project do not properly assess the situation. An ERP consultant's participation will help to get a fresh look at the project.
  • ERP consulting firms experience: an experienced ERP consultant will become a link between your company and experts who have repeatedly participated in new technology implementation projects. Likely, ERP consultants have already faced problems similar to yours and understand how to avoid all the pitfalls of organizational changes in ERP implementation.
  • Special skills: your company may not have a specialist capable of managing inevitable and complex organization changes during business automation and implementing ERP. As a rule, third-party ERP consultants are competent in technical and business management spheres, solving the issues of the whole cycle of your company's transition to digital technologies.
  • Reducing pressure on staff: With ERP, you won't significantly disrupt your employees' daily work. However, you will need a dedicated team of employees for the project, and ERP consultants will help you form it. The team will consist of experts with a clear understanding of their roles and specific area of responsibility.
  • Universal problem solving: successful automation requires increased attention to business process management during the whole project life cycle. ERP consultants can work directly with those responsible for the process, identify problem areas, and determine the future state's business processes. 

Sometimes, an in-house manager has a great idea to save the company time and money, but there is no authority to implement it. ERP consulting companies will help to build a business case for the project that will convince management to invest in new technologies at their enterprise.

Weaknesses

Most difficulties with ERP systems arise in organizations due to insufficient investment in staff training, including employees who are involved in the implementation and testing of system changes, as well as the lack of company policy aimed at the correct use of them.

The weaknesses of implementing ERP are as follows:

  1. The success of implementation depends on the qualifications and expertise of staff, including exercise on how to ensure bug-free operation ;
  2. Opportunities for individual improvement are limited. 
  3. Installation of ERP can be costly.
  4. ERP can be challenging to use.

Eventually, companies that recognize their limited capabilities and involve representatives of ERP suppliers or independent ERP consultants in project management of ERP implementation become stronger, getting an objective assessment from the outside, using unique external experience, and reducing pressure on staff.
