With the ultimate quarter of the yr nicely underway, it’s sometimes a time of revaluation of previous methods. Project groups are taking the time to hunt new initiatives to remain aggressive within the manufacturing and distribution sectors.

As an unbiased ERP consulting firm, widespread questions we hear this time of year are “Are we ready for a new ERP system? Is next year the right time? Can we be successful with our existing system?”

Before any plans are set to undertake an enterprise technology evaluation project, we see probably the most profitable firms are people who set ERP targets early within the course of.

 Survey Shows Importance of ERP Goals

The significance of setting ERP goals is confirmed from findings in Ultra’s ERP Implementation Survey just lately carried out by Mint Jutras Founder and President Cindy Jutras, and sponsored by Ultra Consultants

The survey surveyed greater than 300 US manufacturers and distributors with a rigorously crafted set of questions designed to strike on the foundation of conceptions about ERP initiatives.

The focus was on ERP implementation projects by way of schedule, prices, and anticipated ROI.

The survey found that an ERP venture is just too vital to embark upon without first setting goals.

These targets must also kind the idea for expectations by way of return on investment (ROI). You might need a single over-riding precedence, otherwise you might need a protracted listing of goals.

The Top ERP Goals

Specific enterprise price savings and enchancment of chosen efficiency metrics high the record, however we discovered it considerably shocking that lower than half (46%) chosen every.

These two objectives present probably the most direct alternative for ROI and most firms embarking on an ERP project should cost-justify the expense.

In the previous, this was always a capital expense, however as software as a service (SaaS) turns into extra prevalent, much less (or no) capital could also be required, maybe making it simpler to justify. But that doesn’t imply you shouldn’t attempt for ROI. An ERP project team is wise to take this discovering into consideration.

Why Set ERP Goals?

Ultra-guides manufacturers and distributors to identify specific, quantifiable goals earlier than getting on board with any project, whether or not that venture is an implementation of a brand-new resolution, a big improve or a serious overhaul.

If your present resolution isn't assembly your goals, or if you happen to by no means set targets, it might very nicely be time to step again and carry out an audit of your current solution to find out whether it is dwelling as much as its full potential.

And then decide if that full potential is enough to offer you a aggressive edge. If not, it might be time to replace it. The function of an ERP consultant might help on this regard.

Your 2020 ERP Goals

As we wrap up this year and head into 2020, be thinking ERP goals. If you'll be able to be goal about this, discover an unbiased third get together that can.
