Implementing an ERP software system not only involves a great deal of expenditure, efforts and time, it also involves change in some of the complex business processes. MCG welcomes changing requirements, even late in development. Software modifications harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.
We deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
Our continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount of work not done–is essential. The best architectures, tools, and designs are made available to our employees and clients. Implementing ERP requires a team of experts who understand the business and technical aspects of the project, like that of Michell Consulting. An ERP solution provider is responsible for understanding a department’s processes and challenges.
A team of experts with specialized knowledge in the field is made to study the basis of different parameters. The experts here at Michell, perform tests to determine whether the package is apt for the range of application in their field. Further, we ascertain the level of coordination that the software would be able achieve in working with different departments. This plainly means that we ensure whether the various departments would offer an increased output due to ERP implementation.
The implementation of ERP is defined this stage. The conditions and regulations to meet are also decided. This is done by a team of officers, who reports to the highest authority in the hierarchy of the organization.
In this stage, a lot of microscopic planning and deliberate action are carried out. The step helps to decide and resolve which areas is important for restructuring. It is chosen from the ERP implementation models.
This is a crucial stage where the implementation process is designed. In this phase the details of the implementation is worked out. The deadlines and the time-schedules are also decided. A plan is chalked out, roles are allotted and responsibilities are assigned. The date for starting the project is also decided. The planning is done by a committee of team leaders.
ERP implementation involves an evident change in the number of employees and their job responsibilities, which results due to a more automated and efficient system. The human factors are taken into account in this stage.
This stage is all about preparing the employees to use ERP. The employees in the organization are trained to handle the system on daily and regular basis.
The phase is marked by attempts to break the system. At this point, the company tests the real case scenarios. The system has been configured, now only extreme cases like system overloads, hackers trying to access restricted areas, multiple users logging on at the same time, users entering invalid data, are addressed. This phase is performed to find the weak links, which could be rectified before implementation.
Finally, the process of implementation would be complete when there is a regular follow up and proper instruction flow thereafter and along the lifetime of ERP. This involves the entire efforts and measures taken to update and attain better benefits, after the system is implemented. The organizations should ensure that the ERP implementation process should be smooth and safe.
