Ensuring Proper ERP Rescues: What can you do to Save your Investment?

Rescuing an ERP project is complicated and tends toward errors and increasing costs. That’s often because companies panic and take inefficient steps, making the problem worse. They could also realize things are going wrong when it’s too late.

How can you streamline your ERP project rescue? You must be patient. Working with good service is also highly beneficial.

Find out what’s wrong

Typically, you need to realize something’s off before you take action. What are the most common causes of an unsuccessful project? We can summarize them into four. You might run into one or several simultaneously.

1.   Your partner

Not working with a real expert can take you to failure before starting to work. They might have the right experience, but many still use standard methodologies with virtually no consideration for their client.

2.   Data migration

Data migration is as tedious as crucial for ensuring proper software implementation. Many clients and experts fail to consider this when implementing ERP solutions. That tends to mean they don’t care enough or assign enough time for it, botching the project.

3.   Training

If your users aren’t receiving enough (or any) training from your service provider, that’s a considerable red flag. It’s fine if you already have a training service, but it should be standard for all services, and it’s key to guaranteeing success.

4.   Technicalities

Finally, you might simply run into many troubleshooting requests. Unfortunately, it’s normally a consequence of all previous causes. Technical problems may come from improper data conversion to compatibility issues no one considered beforehand.

Take a moment to think

After you realize your ERP project isn’t going anywhere, you mustn’t succumb to panic. Yes, you might have lost some money, but not all failed projects need redoing from scratch. Panicking and making more mistakes only endangers your capital as well.

1.   Communicate

The first step to getting everything back on track is to communicate with your teams and your implementation partner. Make sure you tell them what’s going on. They might even help you come up with a solid solution for the problem.

2.   Find a good service

Finally, consider hiring a specialized ERP rescue team. Many ERP partners don’t support rescue, and they often take longer to fix their mistakes than an experienced solution. Make sure to look at our services if you think you need specialists.

Work with your new partner

You want to cooperate with your ERP rescue service if you don’t want to make the same mistakes or slow down the process unnecessarily. Provide all the information and reports about your failed project to ensure they know where to start.

For instance, we provide a free consultation for every customer to help them come up with an optimal approach. Make sure to contact us to get your project back on track!
