ERP Consulting

Enterprise Resource Planning Consulting
  What is ERP Consulting? ERP consulting is the combination of services associated with implementing an ERP system. ERP consulting can encompass everything from initial business auditing and ERP system selection, to on-going training, support and workflow optimization. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) consultants are often specialists in a specific line of business, such as finance, or an industry vertical like manufacturing. Generally, consultancy services deal with the selection, implementation, training and support of an ERP solution. A consultant should give you good advice, listen to your needs and tell you hard truths when necessary.
ERP consultants are experts in the transition from old, usually disparate, business management systems to the new solution. They analyze and understand your business requirements, and in this context evaluate potential ERP solutions. Choosing the most appropriate system, then deploying, customizing, testing and fine tuning that system are all phases of the project which can be handled by ERP consultants.

What kind of ERP consultant do I need?

Some consultancies will specialize in a particular phase of the process, while others are adept at delivering an end-to-end solution.

Your requirements for a management system may be quite limited in scope or may be as ambitious as the complete transformation of your business processes. Your consultant should have knowledge of your industry and the consultancy and development resources to meet your project’s needs.


What should I expect from a consultant?

ERP projects are notoriously complex and high risk. Not surprisingly, the high-profile failures are the ones that get most attention. A good consultant will keep the project on track by following a road-tested methodology, listening to and guiding the client, mitigating project risks, and handling the psychological aspects of change. Again, a good consultant will recognize and avoid pitfalls, such as scope creep, inadequate testing and poor data cleansing. The best consultant is not necessarily the one who promises to deliver all your requirements. Honesty, and advising that something can’t be done, is better than starting down a path of inevitable failure. Value your consultant’s expertise and, at the same time, demand from them the highest
