Implementations are an important part of any software project, whether you're replacing an introductory solution, legacy piece of software or just starting a business.
This ERP Implementation Guide takes an in-depth look at what is involved with ERP implementations, common differences in implementations between vendors to keep in mind when evaluating options and how implementation costs are allocated.
Most implementations will include:
- Installation - physical installation of software and applications
- Configuration - managing system parameters to fit your business needs
- Data Migration - moving data from existing software or spreadsheets into the new system
- Employee Training - training employees on how to use the new system
ERP implementations tend to vary significantly from one vendor to the next so understanding what is involved will play a large role in your final decision as well as total project costs.
