Learn About Our Process-Centric Approach to ERP Implementation and Adoption
There are thousands of Microsoft Dynamics solution partners across the globe with different levels of experience and knowledge. Each solution partner has their own unique way of approaching an ERP implementation that can depend on their team, their services, how many years they have worked in the ecosystem, the types of industries they work with, and more.
A methodology is a defined set of guiding processes used to manage a project effectively. Due to the complexity of ERP software implementations, a structured project methodology is essential to ensuring organization, communication, and consistency. It is ultimately designed to:
- Reduce project risk
- Determine how work is prioritized and completed
- Make better use of resources
- Define a schedule and timeline
- Increase time to value
- Lower operational costs
- Increase the probability of success
As a global enterprise solution integrator and experienced Microsoft Dynamics Silver Partner, OnActuate has built its methodology around our people first philosophy. We understand that not every business has the resources and funds to roll out and customize a brand new, state-of-the-art ERP system, and we have invested the time into navigating the stresses of large-scale software implementation. That’s why we have developed a trusted process-centric approach focused on key processes that deliver value.
Before we dive into the details, it’s important to understand the common ERP project risks and critical success factors that we have built our methodology around. There are a lot of moving parts in an ERP implementation, and your project will have no direction without establishing a clear project scope and structure. Without these steps, you’re putting your business at risk and can create any of the following problems:
- Missed deadlines and permanent delays
- Additional costs and business disruption
- Unnecessary complexities added to your system
- Employee frustration and poor ERP adoption
- Misinterpreted delivery requirements and unrealized process efficiencies
If you are ready to make the investment in changing your business processes, you want to reduce or eliminate the possibilities of these risks. To do that, you need a solution partner with a tried and trusted plan.
