ERP myth: “The bigger the company, dealing with implementation will be done in a better way …”
Reality: The majoriry of the customers of the big companies did receive excellent service. The implementation companies funnel into their major projects the biggest resources and the most talented and experienced people in the company, who are already experienced with smaller companies- What leaves the smaller companies a lot of times with less experienced employees.
ERP myth: “the provider will do the implementation and will take care of everything …”
Reality: management commitment is essential to the success in any circumstances of ERP implementation project. Much work lies on the shoulders of workers under different project and collaboration is required to advance the project. Project management involvement and control of the workers is essential to the success of the project.
ERP myth: “We launched within two months including finance, manufacturing, inventory, customer service, enterprise portal, pricing and supply chain management …”
Reality: The larger the organization the longer it will take to fully implement. Even after the system is up soetimes it is required to implement in another area of business that was implemented. There is also a limit to the amount of information in your organization that employees can pick at a given time, and sometimes they need some more time to digest efficiently the advanced functions that ERP system can offer.
