ERP system as a long-time business solution

As a comprehensive, flexible and industry-specific ERP system provider, eresource, satisfies all its clients' need for quick access to reliable, one-source information for continued business growth. eresource, a leader in web-based ERP solution for many industrial verticals has recently launched its SAAS model ERP solution focusing the small and medium sized companies in India and abroad.

Web-based eresource ERP system made business process easy for companies. The legacy system they were depend on their day to day work process getting outdated as the demanded regular customization and even after the customization the system lacked integrated functionality.

The data available to support critical business decisions also lacked quality and as a result every sections were forced to develop their own database on spreadsheets and workarounds. Additionally, companies having different ERP system deployed in their other location further contributed to the islands of information and multiple data entry points.

Companies also realized that application support and customization was not adequate enough for an efficient business process and many companies after implementing eresource ERP started feeling the impact with streamlined and effective working method of the system.

It makes extremely happy when we hear about the success stories of our customers that are experiencing with the implementation of our system in their companies. It makes us more proud when we hear that our customers are recommending eresource ERP to new clients, which is highly unusual in today's competitive business world.

Success of eresource ERP starts from the time of its implementation. As you know the catch word of ERP implementation is speed. It was our New Year resolution that all our future implementation will be completed just in 90 days. However, we ourselves surprised that our first implementation of the New Year has been completed in a record-breaking 40-day time span.

The mission was started when the company, the Byteware Technologies in Dubai has planned to implement an effective ERP system sometime in February 2011. Though the company has evaluated many ERP products, they could not find a suitable one that will match with their requirement. It was during the month of October 2011 that the company happened to established the rapport with us, eresource Infotech, and demanded a quick go and implementation process. The order was finally placed by the company in the month of November 2011 and wanted to see the project go live by January 2012.

The project covered end to end business functions, i.e. from Sales, Procurement, Material Management, Distribution, Warehouse Management, Project Sales and Finance. Yes, of course, the project went live on January 8, 2012, as demanded by the company. It was really a record-breaking achievement.

It is normal to encounter with some technical setbacks at the implementation time. But we have surprised this time there were hardly anything that took much time to resolve. The credit must be given where it is due. Hats off to our implementation team for completing the mission in a very successful way. All our current and future implementations are focusing on the same line of working method and we can promise all our clients that we deliver what you demand that too on time.

Mistakes committed during implementation of an ERP system

As we have said it earlier, all ERP implementations cannot be 100 per cent successful and the reasons for this are various. Though this may be the ground reality, the failure percentages are getting reduced to the lowest, which is surely an encouraging development.

Poor planning is the main cause of ERP implementation failure. The scope, size, complexity and change required for a successful ERP implementation requires support from all corners of an organization. Without major decision makers involved from the beginning, critical steps and activities can be easily overlooked.

Change management is the second reason for any ERP implementation failure. Changing the corporate culture, business processes and employee training can be a long-term, uphill climb. Understanding change management and training are essential components to a successful ERP implementation. Employee training should begin before implementation, educating all employees of the benefits of using this new tool; making their jobs easier and the organization more efficient as a whole.

Poor selection of wrong ERP tool is another reason. Some of the biggest ERP implementation failures occur due a mismatch between the needs, processes and structure of your organization with the implemented software. This can create significant problems such as loss of productivity and time along with many of the new system's benefits. Therefore it is very important to select the right ERP system for your business to avoid any failure from that quarter.

Thoroughly understanding the complexity of an ERP implement would contribute to the success of its implementation. Some companies, on the process of cost-saving exercises, will run over budget on their ERP project by requiring their IT department to work overtime to complete the implementation. However, with inadequate skills and directives from the contracted software provider this exercise of the IT department will turn out to be disaster which would create only more knots in your ERP implementation than make any progress.

It is important consider your ERP system as a complex project. Considering the ERP system as a simple IT project can be the most costly mistake one can make. Without proper input company-wide, your ERP system will not be engineered and aligned to work with the business processes and needs of your employees.

Training in ERP for everyone

Inadequate training in ERP can lead to system failure

eresource Academy's training on ERP training is important as the system itself and all users of the ERP system should be trained properly in using the system to its fullest. ERP training to all employees of a company will not be the same. Training requirement and options may vary with different groups of people in the company.

Managers need more focus on the decision-making and analysis features of the system, while the clerical staff need more focus on how to perform their jobs. But all the users must be trained in the ERP basics, overview of the system and its working, how an action by an employee triggers a host of events through the organization, how automation will help, what processes are changed and so on.

Decision makers in an organization need to have sufficient understanding of what is involved in an implementation project so that they appreciate the potential problems and are able to give the commitment and support that is required for their employees.

It is important to educate everyone in a company about the working of an ERP system so that they understand what is going to be achieved with the new system. Additional education should include total quality management and change management strategies. Also the training sessions should be used to gain acceptance for the ERP systems by dispelling the myths about ERP. When the employees do not understand what the new system is and what it is supposed to do and how to operate it, they will not use it or use it incorrectly. This can lead to failure of the system. Train process owners (department managers) in how to use the system. Have them train the users.

The members of the project team need to get thorough training and skills that will enable them to establish how to best use the functionality for the operation and maintenance phase. Since the members of the project team will become the trainers of other employees in the organization, they must be provided with the skill to able to formulate and deliver a training course.

The users of the ERP system need to have the skill for using the functionality relevant to their roles. They should understand the basic concepts of ERP and also how to perform the day-to-day activities in the ERP system. Others who require training include managers, who should have at least an appreciation of what the system does. Ideally, the project manager should have a good understanding o fall aspects of the system so that he can be effective in dealing with any issues raised.

A select number of people will require more specific technical training so that they can design databases, write scripts, manage users, generate reports and query the database for specific requirements.

The system administrators need to be able to setup the system and then maintain it. They will require knowledge about how to handle system security and deal with technical problems. They will need to develop a level of understanding of the functionality so that, at some stage after implementation when the project team is disbanded, they are able to manage the system smoothly.

Additionally, over the period it can be expected that the ERP tool will evolve to some degree along with the company and projects that it serves. From time to time it may be necessary to conduct additional training sessions to keep everyone abreast of the changes that have been implemented.

eresource Academy has developed program dedicated to training users in every aspect of the Integrated ERP software system. Its exclusive two-day basic ERP training course gives an opportunity to the users of ERP systems and other IT professionals to get acquainted with ERP software.

Allay the fear of losing jobs; get trained in ERP

ERP training is very important not only to improve the business process, but also it helps eliminating any fear that the employees may have due to the changing work environment. What everyone must realize is that change is happening faster that most people care to think about. While everyone accepts that change is a must most people do not want change to happen. An appropriate guidance and training must be provided to the staff to overcome any mental fear that has been cropped up due to the changes has taken place with the ERP implementation in their work place also in their work nature.

The biggest fear shared by people in companies going in for ERP implementation is the loss of their jobs. As soon as the decision about the ERP implementation is announced rumours about the new system automating all the tasks and making people redundant will start floating around. When a company talks about ERP and automation, the immediate reaction is that computers will replace people.

But what most people fail to hear is that the people who are doing manual jobs before computerization were able to get better jobs with higher salaries once they got trained in ERP system. So if a employee is trained with ERP system and willing to learn the new system and new way of doing business, then he or she does not have anything to fear. They will also have very good chance of getting better jobs with higher salaries.

Another fear that must be addressed is people's fear of failure - the fear of not understanding or being able to work within an automated environment. Many companies make the serious mistake of not insisting on a very thorough ERP training program that will insure the employees have the knowledge and a confidence level of adapting and using the new ERP system to the maximum benefit of the company.

Some employers view ERP training as an expensive exercise and by not sending the employees to the training session save some money. Beware of that claim and the firms are bound to face huge loss due to improper usage of an ERP system and on the contrary depriving ERP training to the staff could bring big loss to the firm in the long run.

Employees must get proper ERP training

For the successful operations of an ERP system it is very important that the employees who use the system must be trained properly. Training should not be confined only the initiall training but there is a need for continuous training programs and refresher courses for the ERP success.

In every organization there will be occasional new recruitments of employees and these employees should be properly trained in the basics of ERP and how to use the ERP system before they can be allotted to different departments. So there must be an induction, orientation and training program that is conducted on a regular basis.

Mainly the ERP training strategy has two objectives - the transfer of knowledge from the vendor's personnel and external consultants to the organization's key personnel and the dissemination of this knowledge through the organization. More precisely, the learning objectives establish what the learner should be able to do as a result of the training. Knowledge may be sought, particularly if related to operational best practices.

An ERP training strategy can be developed defining the ERP training policy and outlining the training program. Each steam will be identified and outlined in terms of the above stages. The strategy will provide an overview of the training objectives, identifying the people involved, the different streams and the content of each steam, organized into courses and sessions.

In many cases while organizations spend whopping amounts on ERP software and its implementation, training of employees who are assigned to run the system is getting neglected or not provided adequately. This act amounts to improper handling of the ERP system which ultimately results in sub-optimal performance of the system or in some cases failed implementations.

eresource Academy has developed program dedicated to training users in every aspect of the Integrated ERP software system. Its exclusive ERP training course gives an opportunity to the users of ERP systems and other IT professionals to get acquainted with ERP software.
