Independent ERP Advisory

Home » Solutions » Independent ERP Advisory

There are thousands of ERP consulting firms, all of whom promise top-of-the-line solutions.

However, 55% – 75% of ERP implementation projects fail to achieve their objectives. It all boils down to the fact of “what & who” you choose and “how” you manage the Project. That’s where we, your trusted independent ERP advisors, can guide you in choosing the “best-fit” ERP solution and then help you in managing the implementation.

Understanding your Requirements?

While you know your business better than us, our consultants are focused on understanding and documenting what you, as a business owner, and your team expects from an ERP solution provider. Whether it is the automation of your business process, implementing controls and accountability, or developing an analysis report to support your decision-making – we ensure we know your expectations. This process helps in identifying objective reasons and developing a strong business case along with a Request for Information (RFI) which lays the foundation for a successful selection.

Selecting the right solution and partner for you

Based on the responses to the RFI, custom developed for your business, and the Proof of Concept (POC) Demos conducted, our consultants will shortlist the best-fit ERP solution and the implementation partner. Our ERP partner selection process not only evaluates quantifiable parameters like years of experience, team strength and the number of implementations, but also the qualifying parameters like the partner’s implementation experience in your industry, success rate, client feedback and methodology used for such projects. We advise you on what to agree to and where to spend when it comes to the ERP contract ensuring the maximum project-related risks are legally covered.

Managing the project for you

Our consultants come on board to act as Project Managers on your behalf ensuring that at every stage of the implementation key objectives are aligned ensuring success. Our consultants’ services can be leveraged for blueprint vetting and scope freezing, user test case preparation, data migration and change management. We act as a bridge between you and ERP solutions providers to ensure alignment with the project objectives at both ends.

We can help you with:

  • Identifying and documenting your business requirements
  • Creation of Request for Proposal (RFP)/ Request for Information (RFI)
  • Unbiased vendor evaluation and ERP selection
  • ERP Implementation Contract vetting and advisory
  • ERP project planning support and implementation advisory
  • Risk assessment and mitigation plans
  • Ensuring benefits realization

We work to bring the ERP that fits you and not force you to adapt the ERP that doesn’t suit you.
