Epicor ERP Implementation
ERP solutions have revolutionized the way companies produce goods and services. They integrate different parts of a company and ensure smooth flow of information across the enterprise quickly. ERP systems provide benefits to organizations by tightly integrating all departments across the organization. Implementing an ERP system is not a matter of changing software systems, rather it is a matter of repositioning the company and transforming the business practices.
Implementation of Epicor ERP software will cause massive change. The critical issues must be carefully considered and managed to have the results you want and expect. You need to identify those critical implementation issues: top management commitment, re-engineering your existing business processes, select a single ERP solution with the right software modules, identify skilled and experienced Epicor ERP implementation consultants, schedule adequate time for the implementatio process, identify the cost of implementation, dedicate some of your best employees as in-house project managers, train all users, and be sure to engage your employees so they have a sense of ownership in the outcode of the implementation.
At Tomerlin-ERP, we utilize the Epicor® Signature Methodology when we perform an implementation.
Stage #1: Prepare
The Preparation Stage is when Tomerlin-ERP aligns the implementation project expectations with the software suite the customer is planning to implement. Tomerlin-ERP validates that the software being considered will meet the customer’s business needs and explore the right suite of implementation tools and techniques that will meet the timeline and budget requirements.
Stage #2: Plan
The Planning Stage is when we and the customer agree on the goals for the implementation.
Stage #3: Design
The Design Stage begins after the implementation is launched and the project plan is approved. In this stage the team begins to use the system and they determine and document how the system will be used.
Stage #4: Validate
The Validation Stage is to ensure that all procedures are correctly implemented and that the transactions flow correctly through the system.
Stage #5: Deploy
The Deployment Stage is when the Go Live Plan is created so Tomerlin-ERP and the customer can both be prepared for this critical phase of the project.
