Aligning the disconnected processes between the customer relationship management software and the accounting software are among the typical challenges a software company hopes to overcome when choosing a new ERP.
While choosing the right software is key, choosing the right implementation partner can be the “make-or-break” point for a software firm implementation. Achieving the goal of an integrated source for all data related to the software firm’s customer, order, contract, billing, revenue recognition and account data relies on a tight integration between the CRM, configure price quote, revenue recognition, and billing software.
ERP Advisors Group will help you identify the correct software footprint that your company needs — or doesn’t need — while setting realistic expectations for the new application’s functionality.
ERP Advisors Group will help your software 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 software company, regardless of your software licensing model.
After finalizing your 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, 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.
