BPR In ERP: What Should Go First?

Representing BPR in ERP before implementation

Naturally, BPR in ERP implementation is mandatory. Installing ERP software means adapting business processes. Thus, business process re-engineering is synonymous with ERP. But, which one should go first?

That’s what we’ll find out in today’s article. If you have more doubts, don’t hesitate to book your free meeting today!

BPR in ERP implementation: Going for BPR first

Business process re-engineering evaluates and improves operations. As such, it goes hand-in-hand with ERP installation. Moreover, it would be better to do it before the project. This article explains several advantages of that approach.

Improving the ERP environment

Firstly, ERP software depends on your business processes. Re-engineering them lets you fix many issues. That way, you remove clutter that could hinder efficiency. In other words, you prepare the ground for ERP software.

Understanding business processes

BPR forces you to assess each business process. So, you gain a better view of how your organization works. Most businesses are dynamic. That means processes can form spontaneously. BPR lets you note everything that’s going on.

Better automation scripts

Obviously, automation is a primary ERP benefit. Unfortunately, neglecting BPR can turn it into a disadvantage. If you don’t assess your processes, automation will fail. It’ll replicate faulty methods. In the long term, that’ll eat away at your ROI.

Reducing costs

Speaking of ROI, BPR can speed up your ROI. Once you’re implementing the software, you can’t go back. Optimizing processes becomes more expensive if you do it simultaneously. With effective BPR, you can cut these expenses.

Easier customization

Finally, all companies have unique needs. Thus, customization is critical in ERP software. Running BPR beforehand lets you find software needs. Maybe you need extra modules for some departments. You find that out during BPR.

Why does BPR in ERP matter?

Expectedly, Acumatica has amazing insight as well. We already learned why BPR should go before implementation. But, why should we even consider it? Do the benefits outweigh the time and costs?

BPR optimizes processes for ERP

As mentioned, BPR prepares the groundwork for implementation. Improving your processes ensures your software will match them. That includes standard and integration features as well. Then, it lowers time, costs, and operational disruption.

BPR clarifies ERP needs

Understanding how your business operates is crucial. It’ll shed light on what you need from your ERP project. That means modules, integrations, features, and plans. Without BPR, you could run over or under budget.
