Looking for a ERP Partner? ERP Solution Provider Attributes That Separate One From Another.
ERP Solution Provider Attributes That Separate One From Another
There’s no doubt when implementing an ERP there’s a huge amount of time and effort required from your employees needing to juggle their day jobs and work the implementation team, coupled with the associated risk to your business to get it right the first time; you want to ensure there’s the efficiencies in the business case achieved and ROI at the end of it.
Despite the ERP software being extremely important to ensure the features and functionality match your business requirements, just as important (if not more so) is who you select as your ERP implementation partner. With so many ERP solution providers out there in the market, the choices can be quite challenging considering each may have their own methodology, client success stories and wide variances in price between them.
More often, the success rate of your ERP implementation is predicated on the solution providers abilities to understand your business product or service delivery model, transferring this to the ERP solution whilst at the same time (and in my opinion, most importantly) transferring the solution and reporting knowledge to your employee users in the quickest possible time or and for the lowest cost.
Below are some of the attributes that make a great ERP implementation and support provider
When delivering an audit or review for our clients and providing recommendations to improve their ERP utilisation, each time we find that often, only 30-50% of the ERP solution capabilities are being utilised. This means that the respective businesses are not achieving their desired initial business case ROI.

What Makes a Good ERP Solution Partner
Every enterprise has a different criterion set and requirements in choosing the right ERP solution partner. Here are some of the elements you can use to evaluate a good partner.
- Fit for Your Business – Many cloud ERP solutions have a weak point in supporting the processes and workflows, like the requirements for retail won’t have the same for distribution and vice versa as an example. So, it’s important to choose a solution and provider that knows the ins and outs of your industry that can readily respond to your needs.
- Ease of Everything – Choosing a suitable partner will allow you to enable your success. Don’t add to your stresses by choosing overly complex solutions. Look for systems that are easy to learn, reliable, efficient, effective and have built-in support tools.
- Future-Ready to Support Growth – Being innovative and strategic are factors that cannot be easily pulled off by many partners nevertheless, a good partner can open up a door of possibilities to your organisation especially with ever-changing and fast pace technology.
