Government

ERP Advisors Group (EAG) is one of the top independent enterprise software advisory firms for government organizations across the country.

Our focus for governmental software advisory services lies in helping a champion for an initiative take the work out of nebulous discussion and into concrete requirements definition, RFP creation, vendor research, and vetting and procurement.

We have worked alongside governmental procurement departments and supported their unique statutory needs, all the way to working with government sponsors with full volition over final software selection.

We have helped departments within larger entities to acquire and implement custom solutions to better serve their constituents — including automating tedious and manual processes and freeing up city, county, and state workers to do more value-added tasks.

Implementation Project Management

After finalizing your government ERP software and services contracts, ERP Advisors Group stays with you to oversee your implementation until you successfully go live.  We will oversee integrations, data migration, change management, budgets, design and configuration, walkthroughs, training, testing, go-live cutover and will provide executive and project sponsor support throughout the duration of your project.

Data Migration

We assist with all components of data migration: extraction, cleansing, transformation and loading into your new system to ensure you have complete confidence in the accuracy of your data at go live.

Why Government Organizations Upgrade Their ERP Software

Surveys across all of our government clients reveal the most common reasons why they need new ERP to automate their business:

  • System does not provide structure and avenues for resource allocation.
  •  Constrained and inflexible system that cannot work within very constrained budget cycles and timelines.
  • Reliant on disparate systems, manual processes, limited reporting, and inflexible resource planning systems for citizen insights.
  • Poor integration between core accounting, budgeting, human resources, and payroll into existing systems.
  • Highly customized system requires extensive knowledge and training to operate.

 

  • Inefficient processes reliant on manual workflow, paper documents and unorganized data management.
  • Budget restrictions and increased service-level demands require highly specialized functionality and controls.
  • On premise systems have high cost of ownership.
  • Forced to make tradeoffs between business functionality and IT needs.
  • Legacy solution does not meet current federal and state government regulations and compliance requirements.
We wouldn’t be in the spot we’re in as an organization, in replacing our record management system or hardware or software, had it not been for the Needs Assessment ERP Advisors Group did at the beginning of the RMS selection process. That was so key and has paid for itself many times over.

Why You Should Hire ERP Advisors Group

We are 100% independent ERP consultants, and we never take commissions or payments from any vendors. Combining our objectivity with our white-glove selection process, you will be absolutely certain that you are selecting the right software and implementation resources.

Resource-Constrained

Our rapidly-growing government clients are already very busy with their day jobs and do not have time to become ERP experts.  Though your key people still have to devote some time to an ERP initiative, hiring an ERP consultant frees them up to make the important ERP decisions while staying focused on their day job.

Complex Business Processes

The more complex your organization, the more likely for difficulty when selecting and implementing software.  ERP Advisors Group will help you uncover your true needs and will only vet the most viable options for your size, requirements, resources and strategy.

 

 

Best Practices for Your Industry

We will create your requirements document and demonstration script with government best practices in mind while retaining what is unique to your company, leaving out the manual workarounds.

 

Change Management

Many clients hire us to help when they suspect they need a business case for new software.  ERP Advisors Group helps supervisors buy into what is best for the taxpayers by getting their input at multiple stages throughout the Needs Analysis, Selection and Implementation.

 

Vendor Demonstrations

A frequent complaint we hear from prospects who tried to select software on their own is feeling confused about the software's capabilities.  We get vendors to show your requirements during their product demonstrations.  This ensures you feel confident about selecting the best products that can meet your needs.

Contract Negotiations

We negotiate tens of millions of dollars in deals every year for our clients.  We provide contracts review on all terms and conditions, including software and services and every agreement embedded throughout the contract.  Our clients receive price protection for many years to come on their purchase.  While we don't guarantee it in writing, we normally save our fees on this step alone.

Benefits to Upgrading Your ERP Software

ERP Advisors Group's Needs Analysis will uncover the benefits your organization would realize with an ERP upgrade.  Some of the most common benefits your government organization will realize include:

  • Provides interactive dashboard, real-time business analytics, drill down reporting, and reporting templates.
  • System that is web and mobile enabled. Cloud-hosted ERP solutions, native iOS and Android mobile apps for easy remote access.
  • Reliable and secure solution that meets all federal and state government requirements. 
  • Improve efficiency and organizational process with paperless document management, email and mobile approvals, intuitive and easy to use data management, and improved data reliability.
  • Personalized and customizable API/integration framework, configurable workflows within internal IT team control.

  • Cloud-based solution with lowered total cost of ownership, reduced implementation times, and easier incorporation to best-in-breed solutions.
  • New system allows for an environment with a mix of vendors and functionality, on premise or in the cloud.


Without a doubt, I will refer ERP Advisors Group to anyone looking to update their software system. As a matter of fact, I in essence referred EAG to myself when I came to Boulder because I knew about them and I recommended them as a firm. I would have no reservations making that recommendation, not just to other public safety entities or governmental entities, but also to private sector firms that are looking for the kind of service that I think EAG is very unique at providing.
