ERP implementation process

The ERP implementation process, a scenario which can only go one of two ways. A successful implementation helps companies to streamline processes, drive profitable growth and ultimately lead them onto the path for a prosperous future. However, a failed project only means wasted time, money and the potential to put an organisation out of business.


A failed ERP implementation is one of the worst-case scenarios for a potential ERP customer. Though making the move to a new ERP system costs companies thousands of pounds in investment, certain businesses don’t take the ERP implementation process as seriously as they should do.


With the stakes so high, it’s essential you know step-by-step how the ERP implementation process works. Knowing this, will be the key to a successful future for your growing business.

Managing the SAP Business One project


For an SAP implementation process to be successful, assembling a Project Management team to assist the project from beginning to end is essential. The team should consist our chosen SAP consultants and the staff from your business who will be the most affected by the SAP Business One system.


Our consultants make sure to communicate everything from what is happening, why it’s happening and when it’s happening between them and your staff to ensure everyone is in the loop.


The Project Manager of the SAP implementation process is there to provide the targets and resources for the project, assign team members to jobs, answer any questions or concerns which appear, and to make sure everyone’s on track for the go-live and project objectives.
