Factors of Successful implementation of an ERP system. 

Successful implementation of an ERP

Factors of Successful implementation of an ERP system : Information technologies are increasingly becoming an integral aspect of corporate strategies that aim to compete. Enterprise resource planning systems (ERP), one of the information technology products, are quickly becoming integrated into the operations of businesses. They have developed into a crucial tool in today’s business environment, one that most businesses could not operate without. Systems for enterprise resource planning are the main information systems infrastructure that support an organization’s success in the current economic climate. Enterprise resource planning systems that are successfully implemented foster organisational synergy, which in turn stimulates the creation of very efficient procedures that are essential to an organization’s success. Experience has shown that, in many cases, the installation of an enterprise resource planning system falls short of the organization’s goals, is significantly more expensive than anticipated, and takes far longer to complete than anticipated. The range of implementation outcomes necessitates analysing the ERP implementation process and determining what needs to be done for a successful implementation. This article’s goals are to identify the elements that contribute to deployment success and examine the variations in assessments made by experts and ERP system users. Enterprise resource planning system implementation is a very complicated process that is influenced by a variety of factors in addition to technical ones. 

Following are the success factors for successful implementation of ERP system 
  • Assistance from top management: Among the most important elements that determine whether enterprise resource planning systems are successfully implemented in a company is this one. Further evidence of its applicability comes from the fact that nearly all literature sources evaluating the elements influencing the effectiveness of deployment of ERP. For an ERP system to be implemented successfully, most research studies have focused especially on top management support. Encouraging the deployment of ERP systems and achieving the intended outcomes is the primary responsibility of upper management Senior managers need to be participants as well as observers. When implementing enterprise resource planning tools, senior management has a responsibility to formulate realistic and well-reasoned goals while being aware of the opportunities and constraints presented by IT.
  • Competent project management: Project management is an expert activity with a high-results focus that is founded on current scientific knowledge, experience, methods, means, and technologies. Management of ERP implementation projects is a sufficiently complex process, as evidenced by significantly overrun ERP implementation financial budgets, frequent delays with respect to scheduled time schedules, and unsuccessful system implementations. When compared to managing any other information technology project, managing ERP implementation initiatives is a little different. 
  • Identify the right ERP and Implementation partner: In order to ensure smooth and steady operations of your Business, one must be aware of a right ERP system. We at Craft Interactive have ERPNext to cater to those requirements, termed as the most agile ERP on the planet.

  • Costing: Normally ERP systems cost a lot based on features, requirements, interface, cloud etc. It may also come with recurring annual license costs and additional costs upon onboarding users or different firms. This is not the case with ERPNext as it comes with no annual recurring cost and no onboarding cost, once implemented you may onboard as many users you like and there is no need to worry about any sorts of annual license fees as there is none. 
  • Employee education and training that is appropriate and timely: Numerous writers frequently pinpoint two elements: instructing potential users on how to operate a system and educating users about novel company procedures. One issue that leads to a bad ERP implementation is frequently cited as being the lack of user training and ignorance of how an enterprise resource planning system will alter an organization’s business processes. Executives and staff members become familiar with the concepts and logic of enterprise resource planning systems through a process known as education and training. All employees benefit from education when it comes to recognising the connections between their job and other functional areas of a company. We at Craft Interactive take all these above points into consideration to ensure smooth training and support throughout the entire implementation process on top of that we also ensure our local availability within the region. 
  • Detailed analysis of the goals and requirements of an organisation: Prioritising business process evaluation, rationalisation, and reorganisation, workplace information needs assessment, and computerization (informatization) plan formulation are required of any organisation purchasing and implementing an information system. After that, the business can outline reasonable and convincing criteria for the information system that needs to be built and bought. When planning and analysing the purchase of an enterprise resource planning system, especially in the pre-project phase, a thorough examination of the organization’s goals and vision is crucial. Because they don’t see the value of optimising their business processes, organisations frequently choose solutions that are inappropriate for their operations. 
  • Reorganising the way business activities are done: The incompatibility of a system with an organization’s business operations and information provision demands is a pretty severe issue with ERP adoption.Of course, this does not even address the situations in which a system that is wholly inappropriate for a particular organisation is chosen. Organisations typically consult experts when choosing a system; these experts suggest the systems that best suit the requirements of that particular company branch. Nevertheless, regardless of a system’s appropriateness, there isn’t a single ERP solution that works for every business. Almost invariably, during ERP deployment, an organisation must choose between changing the system by tailoring it to fit its current business processes or reorganising its business processes in accordance with the logic suggested by the system.
