Common ERP Mistakes and How to Avoid Making Them

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are huge investments of money, resources and time. And while a successful ERP implementation can help your organisation streamline workflow and cut costs, a poorly planned and implemented ERP can severely cost organizations, in terms of lost productivity and delays. To help ensure your ERP implementation is a success, or at least to minimize potential problems we have come up with some common ERP mistakes and their fixes.
Common ERP Mistakes

Inadequate planning – Planning is absolutely necessary if you want your ERP project to succeed. Many organizations do not do enough forthright planning before they begin an ERP software evaluation which often leads to confusion because they might not fully understand their current processes and how to develop them to maximize business benefits and efficiencies. To solve this problem, organizations should conduct an internal assessment of all of their processes and policies before choosing an ERP system.

Not understanding or using key features. Without knowing features, companies miss opportunities to automate business processes, complete functions faster, and meet business objectives. To solve this problem, create a ist with all features, tracking usage, and occasionally reviewing the list to determine which features are being used and which are the most helpful. This knowledge catalog can be used to train new employees, write test scripts, and help with review, compliance, and reporting requirements.
Underestimating the time and resources required. All companies underestimate the time and resources required to implement a new ERP system. So how can you calculate the necessary time involved? The time involved can be estimated by dividing the cost of the software by 100. Double that number if you plan to self-implement with minimal professional assistance. It is important to assign a dedicated project manager.

Not having the right people on the team from the start. Sometimes, organizations do not bring the right people together from the very start of an ERP implementation. ERP implementation is one of the biggest projects an organization can undertake, and consequently, mistakes can be made and plans might get out tracked if the right stakeholders are not involved in every part of the decision-making process. For example, many organizations focus on getting executive approval, instead of gathering key participants from across the organization, from finance, operations, manufacturing, purchasing, and the warehouse, in addition to IT. The benefit: employees who are actively engaged with the ERP implementation, who have an investment in getting it right, right from the start.

Automating Export documentation can save significant time

Every export taking place in the company goes through defined steps of documentation like invoice, packing list, bill of exchange, shipping bill etc.

Instead of performing repeatedly the same tasks, it should be a simple set of few button clicks automating Export documentation to complete. Here we have taken the example of export documentation but in business no matter how simple or complex a task, if it is repetitive then it may be automated to save time and eliminate possibility of error. For example every invoice generated should be emailed to customer; every dispatch should be emailed to customer and a group of seniors. These are examples of simple tasks but there are numerous possibilities of errors. Even if it is done without error it is highly possible that every email is in a different format.Such automation involves time and money but once done properly, it has huge advantage like Performance and Efficiency (Task reduced from hours to minutes), Consistency and error free (Same standard professional output and no errors no corrections), Easy for anyone to learn and get going.

– Exporters have reduced rework due to errors by 75%. Man hours spent for documentation has reduced by 60% and output is now more professional and reliable with EXPAND smERP for exporters.
