6 KEYS TO IMPLEMENTING THE IDEAL ERP SOLUTION (As Presented In Dog Memes)


Implementing the correct ERP solution for your business can not only be stressful, but extremely confusing and therefore, time-consuming. Here's a quick guide to follow, comprised of dog-memes, in order to relieve your worries and to make that transition a little less daunting.

1. Research & Discovery

The first step in this process is going to take a little effort on your part. Take the time to first figure out what your company's needs are as far as the functionality you'll require in an ERP system. Once those points have been determined, do some research on your own as to what ERP solutions are available that fit with the majority of those needs (software enhancements to supplement your chosen ERP solution, such as the ones developed by IIG, can be available if it doesn't fit EVERY need). Lastly, make sure it's something you're comfortable with, not only as far as ease of use, but that will fit properly in your budget as well. Keep in mind, you can always refer to a consultant such as the ones at IIG to help you along with this process. The experts at IIG has been creating custom ERP solutions, tailor-made for our clients' needs, for over 25 years.

2. Setting Up Your New System

Okay, so you've finally figure out which one will work best for you. Now you'll have to have your new ERP solution installed, configured to the proper settings to fit your business's requirements, and have your company's internal data and information merged into it as well. This is a process that requires a series of meetings and discussions with your IIG rep in order to ensure everything is set up properly.

3. Staff Training

Once installation is complete, you'll want to go over a series of strategy sessions to fully train you and your staff on the correct functionality of your new ERP system, as well as the quickest and most efficient methods to do so. Again, this is nothing to stress over as the staff at IIG are constantly and consistently training our clients (and have been for over 20 years) as well as keeping them up-to-date with the latest versions and most effective processes of their ERP system.

4. Testing, Testing...1, 2
