5 Steps to a Successful ERP Implementation
Implementing an entirely new software system can be a tricky business. Find out five simple steps to get you started.
Your Local Partner Will Be There For You
Requirements & Selection
In the early stages, your local partner will help you establish the overall scope and budget for your project and also advise you on how to assemble an evaluation team to oversee a successful implementation.
After your team mutually assembles, prioritizes, and documents your business requirements for the new system, your partner will carefully go over these requirements to determine if Acumatica fits your business needs.
And finally, you and your partner will discuss and establish deployment options to be investigated. Your partner will assist in deploying Acumatica wherever it makes sense for you. Options range from top-tier global hosting platforms, to familiar local providers, to your own data center.
Implementation Planning, Training, & Support
Based on the scope of the project, you and your partner will jointly develop an implementation project plan for your project team that includes details on how and when data will be migrated or inputted to the system.
While training on and testing the software, you will be creating your new and improved processes. Be sure to utilize your partners’ business process experience to suggest improvements where applicable. Your partner may have you use a “sandbox” to perform these activities. By using a sandbox with a snapshot of your data, you have a safe learning environment where nothing will be changed in your live data.
Consulting, Customization, and Upgrade Services
We want you to get the most of your software investment. Our experienced partners have the business knowledge and technical skills to help you tailor, and possibly customize, the software for your business.
And as your business grows, your local partner can fine-tune the flexible Acumatica software to fit your new needs. They are there for you over the long term to advise, consult, support, train, and provide services related to IT and business applications.
