Some professional services firms need to automate manual processes for tracking time and expenses, while others need to automate the entire project lifecycle, including resource management, detailed task tracking, and intricate costing and profitability reporting. ERP Advisors Group can help your firm plan what you need so you purchase the right software without buying modules you don’t need.
ERP Advisors Group will help your Professional Services business define requirements, set your software strategy, provide a roadmap, conduct a diligent vendor selection process, and manage the entire implementation.
We will define your needs and wants as well as how you would ideally use new automated solutions across your Professional Services company, whether you are an engineering, consulting, inspecting, architecture, accounting, financial advising, or other time and expense-based services provider.
After finalizing your Professional Services ERP software and services contracts, EAG 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, and go-live cutover and will provide executive and project sponsor support throughout the duration of your project.
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.
Surveys across all of our Professional Services clients reveal the most common reasons why they need new ERP to automate their business:
Time entry is not user-friendly or intuitive requiring repetitive entry of project attributes and lacking defaults.
Unable to see the availability of resources when staffing for projects.
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.
"I would definitely offer up EAG as an independent company to help guide somebody through the [Needs Analysis] process effectively." - Zan Murray, JUB Engineers
