Signs That Your ERP Project Needs Saving
Scope Creep: Frequent changes to the project’s scope without adjustments to timelines or budgets, suggesting a lack of clear initial vision and planning.
Delayed Milestones: Missing early project milestones can indicate planning, execution, or resource allocation issues that might derail the project timeline.
Inadequate Risk Management: Failure to identify, assess, and mitigate risks early in the project, leading to potential obstacles later on that could have been prevented.
Lack of Customisation Strategy: Without a clear plan for customisation, there’s a risk of developing a system that doesn’t fully meet the business’s specific needs and leaves no room for accommodating any evolving requirements.
Technical Debt Accumulation: Early compromises on system architecture or design that may solve short-term challenges but create long-term maintenance and scalability issues.
How Do Our ERP Rescue Services Work?
We use a standardised approach to all ERP rescue projects, consisting of 4 key areas. We tailor our service within those key areas to your individual requirements in order to create a functional, well-received final solution.
Our consultants perform a detailed assessment of your system or project in its current state to understand the key issues and build a report of what areas need improving. This includes a review of project approach and methodology, your internal workflows, goals for your ERP and wider plans for integration and roll-out.
Based on what’s found, our experts will outline the problem areas in your current solution or project. We’ll then collaborate with you to re-scope and re-design your solution. Where practical, we’ll use as much of the original development as possible. In extreme cases, we may be required to start again from scratch, at which point we’ll be working at an accelerated rate to deliver your project as soon as possible.
Once our plans are approved, we’ll begin development (or modification in the case of an existing system). We’ll work closely with you to ensure your solution meets project scope and stakeholder requirements. Once fully tested, we’ll ensure your new ERP solution is implemented seamlessly.
4. Post-Implementation Support & Training
We can also ensure user adoption, post-implementation. We’re able to deliver in-depth training for staff to ensure they’re confident using the new solution. We then offer ongoing support to assist with any future issues, ensuring you’re never left in the dark.
Signs That You Need To Rescue Your Current ERP System
Warning signs that your current ERP system may require intervention include experiencing a low user adoption rate, which suggests the solution does not align well with your employees’ workflows or expectations. This issue often goes hand in hand with encountering inaccurate data within the system, undermining operational efficiency and decision-making processes.
Limited mobile access can severely impact flexibility and productivity, especially if your team are mobile. Furthermore, an ERP system that integrates poorly with other business systems can lead to operational silos, disrupting workflow and data continuity across your organisation. The absence of sufficient customisation options further aggravates these challenges by preventing the ERP from adapting to your unique needs.
Another critical issue is sluggish system performance, which can delay processes and frustrate users. Coupled with this is the problem of inadequate reporting and analytics capabilities, essential for guiding strategic decisions and maintaining a competitive edge.
A lack of scalability points to the system’s inability to grow alongside your business, potentially hindering expansion and adaptation to market changes. These signs collectively suggest that your ERP system may need a comprehensive review and possibly a rescue strategy to realign it with your business objectives and operational requirements.
