Congrats! On the biggest day of love, also known as Valentine’s Day, it looks like it is your Chief Financial Officer’s lucky day. Your CFO matched with an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Solution that meets their business needs and objectives. This ‘match’ is ready to settle down, make it past the seven-month itch, and is in it for the long haul. Also, this match, like any other new date, takes time to get used to, but it won’t take long to get acquainted and comfortable. Your CFO swiped left, just like you would on Tinder, and it turns out that match is Sage Intacct!
Choosing to implement an ERP like Sage Intacct is a massive decision for any company, and trust us, it comes with careful planning and execution. Get ready CFO’s, just like dating, a new ‘relationship’ comes with its hurdles and challenges.
Here are three very common ERP implementation hurdles almost every company will often face:
- Choosing a suitable system – The size and scope of any ERP like Sage Intacct ultimately determines any business strategy and plan for many years to come. The choices that are made when a CFO signs the dotted line and at the beginning of implementation will play a crucial role in the success of all business actions, so company leaders (that is you CFO’s, CIO’s, and CEO’s) must ask themselves what features are good for me now, tomorrow, and ten years from now. This also goes for customizations as well. Your ERP needs to scale; don’t regret this decision in a few years…
- It’s cost a lot of money and time – It’s no secret that implementing an ERP ain’t cheap. Sadly, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ with an ERP and the more customizations to the ERP, the higher the price tag. Also, with more customizations comes more time. As soon as one chooses to move forward with a new ERP, it is time to prepare yourself to chill out and namaste. The more prepared a company is to begin the implementation process, the better its employees will be able to anticipate how long the implementation will cost and how long it will take. Because of the sticker shock and the time it takes to implement a new ERP, you need a trusted and local partner that isn’t out for just your time and cash.
- Training training and more training – Once all decision makers are on board to move forward, it’s vital for employees to feel comfortable with these changes. Proper training for all parties involved will make for an easy transition and smooth sailing.
