What are the Different Methods of Implementing ERP?

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Companies spend a lot of time and money on implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning. They undertake rigorous assessment to find the best vendor and software. The top management tries to put all the recourses together to ensure the implementation process go smooth.

There are various methods to implement ERP. Read through and know which process will be suitable for your business environment. Of course, the business process of one company may be entirely different from the other company. Just don't go blindly because somebody else in your neighborhood has implemented ERP in different way. You have to choose the method which fits for your organization's environment.

Full-fledged and Module by Module Implementation

Depends on the company's business process both the vendor and the customer will decide for the implementation process. Based on the availability of the resources, they go for either full implementation or partial implementation. In the full-fledged implementation, the vendor opts for implementation of all functional departments at a time. This type of implementation needs many resources to be worked at the same time.

Almost all the functional consultants involve and start integration of all the functional departments at the same time. Whereas in module based implementation, they go module by module and then they integrate all the departments. If the customer coordinates with all the information and required resources, vendors will go for full-fledged implementation otherwise, they start implement step by step. Nowadays it is recommended to go with step by step installation. Implement the most important business function at the outset and start implementing other functional departments and integrate all of them at one pace.

Enterprise Wide Installation

Most of the companies used to go ahead with this type of implementation in olden days because they were in rush to implement ERP in their business environment. There are a lot of risks involved in this type of implementation because it is very difficult to get your core enterprise resource planning team on to single platform. The communication between the core teams of both vendor side and the customer side was too difficult. How much ever big the organization is, all the modules used to be implemented at a time. As time progress, business owners are realizing the demerits of this method and try shifting for other methods where they can comfortably implement the ERP application.

Unit by Unit Implementation

This is the most popular and successful method of ERP implementation in larger companies where there are a lot of branches existed. This is very useful method if the business process is different from one business unit to other. Nowadays, this is what the trend and most of the big companies following the same. In this method, the vendor will take one business unit and implement the required modules and then move to the next one. Once the implementation of all the modules in all business units, the integration will start across all the business units.
