4 Ways to Avoid Implementation Failure

We have seen many implementation failures over the years, and we have observed a few common denominators. Below is a glimpse into top ways to avoid ERP implementation failure. 

Ensure you have the RIGHT resources
  • Sometimes the implementation resources are too bogged down by other projects or their day jobs to devote time to the success of a major transformation. Poorly managing resources will be detrimental to your implementation.  


Hold users ACCOUNTABLE during training

  • Organize sessions where users can practice entering orders or handling other common tasks. This ensures that training is not only assigned but is completed while also creating a safe environment for employees to ask questions.
Plan for DATA MIGRATION early
  • A system will falter without good data. Data migration processes should begin months prior to implementation (or longer for multinational or complex companies), so put data at the forefront of your implementation.

Don't underestimate the power of TESTING
  • You don't know if an ERP works until you test it. Understand how to test your system leading up to going live to cut down on surprises (and headaches) the day of. 

We decided to hire ERP Advisors Group because they were professionals in the industry, and ERP implementations are the only thing they do. We didn't want to choose a firm that had two or three other side businesses. EAG helped us determine that there was one system that was going to be a fit for us. In the end, they made our choice easy. Read more or see Bron Tapes case study.
