It is usual for any company considering a new ERP implementation or an upgrade to worry about the success of their project. This is normal because the success or failure of an implementation or upgrade has an enormous impact on the company. Training will significantly minimize that risk.
How to Achieve the Most from Your Epicor Training
Whether your company is new to using Epicor or you’re looking to increase the efficiency in which your company is using it, ensuring that your employees have adequate training is essential. This ensures that your company continues to grow financially.
Your company’s training needs will vary based upon what departments you’re training.

It’ll also change the skill sets of your departments and the learning style of your employees.

We always recommend Epicor® software users leverage Epicor University when they want training for their employees. Epicor® offers three different training experiences. They are: 1) Live Classroom Training, 2) Live Remote Training, and 3) Webinars. Of these three methods, Tomerlin-ERP believes the most effective ERP software training method is the live classroom, followed by the live remote training session. The webinars seem to work best for knowledgeable users who need more information about a specific process.
What happens after you implement your enterprise resource planning software? After the date you “go live,” the leader of the project should have a complete understanding of how to use the software. That doesn’t mean that the rest of your company is in as solid of a place after training.
Training Each Role
One of the most significant benefits of ERP software is that it encourages inter-department teams to work together. As your employees are going through the offer training process, you must explain how they can take advantage of the new software. Offering this insight helps to encourage employees to use the software for increased communication through your enterprise.
Keep in mind that users throughout different departments will perform unique ERP functions. Ultimately, this means that you shouldn’t train each of your employees the same. Some employees on your team will need to understand how to manage your company’s inventory, while others might work the shop floor, etc.
Any power users you have on your team will need intense training on several aspects of the ERP software. However, other team members will only need to be using a handful of features.
The remote users you have working on your team will need to understand mobile functionality, unlike the in-house employees!
Depending on the role they fill in at your company, make sure that your employees receive an appropriate training level. This ensures they can easily incorporate the new software into their daily work routine.
Just as your company isn’t static, the way your employees interact with the ERP software will continue to change. There will be vendors that will upgrade their ERP products, and even some of these updates may be a bit drastic.
You can quickly increase the longevity of your ERP software by providing your employees with yearly refreshers. This can be achieved by educating your Epicor® users on new and essential changes that have been made to your business processes or any changes to the system. Your company may even hire new employees or find new points in the system that can be improved over time.
Going strictly off of book knowledge when training your employees isn’t nearly as beneficial as hands-on training. Working with our experienced consultants will provide your company with someone who has extensive training experience with this software. Not only will this help you to maximize the value of your investment in ERP software, but it’ll also take all of the stress out of teaching your employees off of you!
Instead of having the stress of getting every branch of your company trained on handling this new software, hire our consultants. We can teach everyone in your company how to use the software and ensure effective employee adoption.
The training you’re providing your employees shouldn’t end with a training session. As your employees develop their understanding and knowledge of ERP, there’s an increased potential for a significant ROI. It’s essential to provide your team with continuous training if you’re looking for ongoing ROI.
Without continued exposure, your employees’ knowledge through the initial training sessions will fade. It’s beneficial for your company to revisit training and find ways to build learning. This will help your employees develop a better understanding of the software.
By integrating siloed departments and encouraging continued education for the software, your company will easily collect data and get a better insight into business intelligence.
Finding an ERP consulting firm like Tomerlin-ERP, which has a large selection of training resources, will allow your company to receive consistent training which fits your unique needs.
Once your employees have completed the initial formal training, they must have online documents. This will provide your employees with a tool to rely on for field definition and assistance. Creating defined fields with context-sensitive help is invaluable to anyone new to this software.
Any technical reference guides you provide your employees will give detailed information on handling specific tasks. This will provide your employees with permutations, functional overviews, case studies, process flow diagrams, and calculations.
Ensuring your employees have access to substantial remote training resources that are readily available will help your team to keep the training they received refreshed in their minds. This will support the success of your company.
Not only will this increase the user adoption of this software. It’ll also ensure that the ROI you receive encourages growth and innovation inside your business.
When employees are better trained, you’ll find a better return on your Epicor® University investment. Epicor® software was built to make it easy for a company to work effectively and efficiently.
Providing your employees with continued training on your company’s ERP solution is an essential factor for growth for your business. By enabling your employees to use your ERP platform efficiently, your company will be better equipped to identify potential events which might need your attention. It’ll also provide your employees with the ability to extract information from the data you collect.
