Epicor® Project Management

Skilled Project Managers Keep it On Time and Below Budget

When we are your Epicor® Kinetic ERP Project Manager at Tomerlin-ERP, our approach consists of five stages: Prepare, Plan, Design, Validate, and Deploy. It is a proven procedure which our consultants believe delivers a cost-effective implementation to the customer.

The Project Manager (PM) is responsible for overseeing the entire implementation process through to completion. One of the PM’s primary responsibilities is coordinating the Tomerlin-ERP resources required to perform an on-time and smooth implementation.

The PM works with the customer’s system administrator/project manager, and together they monitor the progress of the implementation. Together they set expectations, schedules, and timetables to measure progress. Together they manage the unexpected events as they occur.

An essential and often overlooked aspect of being a successful PM is “change management.” Your success not only depends on how well you manage the Epicor® implementation but also how well your associates accept and support this change. Your associates will have many different reactions, like, “This software does not apply to me,”; “We don’t need a new ERP system,”; and the most difficult to manage are the associates who don’t tell you they are frightened they might not be able to learn how to use the new software. For all of your associates, you need to show them the big picture and for those who are intimidated by the thought of a new software system, give them your assurance that they will receive the training they will need to be a success!

3. Staffing

How to Create an Epicor Kinetic ERP Implementation Success

1

Focus on the Critical Requirements

Focus on what actually drives your business, not every piece of functionality. Define which 3-5 critical requirements need to be clearly defined, and go from there.

2

Employee Organization

As a leader, make sure the right people are on the team. Having employees in their right positions will smooth out any bumps in the road.

3

Function-led

Bring all aspects of the business together and facilitate the implementation for success. Make sure your business leads the project process and focus on the key elements that will accomplish the project.

4

Change Management

You must prioritize change management for changes in jobs, processes, and the overall system. Be a strong leader and implement proactive communication for your Epicor® ERP project to be a success.

5

Proper Training and Education

Make sure that processes are defined and understood. Make sure that employees know their responsibilities, expectations, and other daily details. Doing so will allow the new system to be implemented without stress and failure.
