Prefer An ERP Partner Over ERP Professional For Your Organization
Once you have finalised to have an ERP solution for your organisation, the next big question that comes is how to implement it. Firstly, it should be clear to all that implementation of ERP on legacy companies is a very tough task. There had been companies which, due to the inadequate planning of ERP systems ran into losses. Obviously no company would like to incur losses with ERP which is actually meant for profitability, but this happens when companies underestimate the complexities involved in ERP.
Majorly it is not the technical aspects but non-technical aspects which creates hurdles in implementation. When we have an ERP Partner it comes with all organisational structure and processes which have to be followed for smooth ERP swap. Also, a partner has experience in getting ERP implemented in a number of other companies thus it can benefit you with rich learnings it has acquired in the process. On the other hand if we have hired expert it doesn’t contribute to structural changes and process which has to be changed. A partner can view your company from hawk eye thus can very well guide you about strengths and weaknesses of the company and how can we improve on same. This is a domain which we can’t expect from our internal resources.
While handing over the project to ERP Partner you can set documented timelines and also can add penalties if timelines are not met. This can’t be done with Hired recourse. Also, Partners have quality recourses and experience for completing projects as per set timelines thus one can be assured that project will run as per given guidelines.
Many times we will observe that once the project gets delayed blame game stars within organisation’s IT leaders, executives and techies, and nobody will agree to take the blame or rectify the issues. In case of partner we have single SPOC whom we have to approach in case of any issues thus can be assured that project will run as per our vision.
