When It’s Time for a New ERP System, Rapid Time to Value is Crucial

Your business is growing fast. New customers keep coming on board while products fly out the door and your service teams are stretched to the limit. 

What do you fear most?  Losing revenue when the customer can’t place their order or losing a customer who goes to a competitor with a more efficient order entry process?  Neither is appealing but why risk either by running a system that won’t scale to your customer’s needs? 

In essence, your short-term success could set you up for failure down the road.


Business Suffers When Deployment Delays Occur

While the selection of a new ERP solution that’s right for your business is a critical decision, the time it takes to deploy the platform is just as important. If your operations are suffering—from inefficient workflows and delayed delivery of products and services—every month that goes by represents another month of lost revenue, less than excellent customer service, lower margins, and lost customers.

Some ERP implementations drag on for months or longer. In worse-case scenarios, the planning, design, or deployment phase goes so poorly, the entire project is called off. The business has to start from scratch with another solution.

Meanwhile, workflows continue to function inefficiently, and the situation will likely get worse. In addition to the impact on the business, morale can decline as employees feel frustrated over how difficult it is to perform their jobs. And as they waste more and more time on administrative tasks, they spend less time with customers.
