by John Stucky

Have you recently decided that your organization needs new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software? Now what? What are the next steps? How do you have a successful search? This new blog & video series explores the top four mistakes to avoid when selecting new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software. Today, I'm discussing mistake #4.

#4 Not Knowing Your Partner

Everybody is impressed by the sales team when they do demos and answer the questions. However, many organizations don’t take the time to meet the actual implementation team who will be on-site, doing the work and the training. That's what you want to watch for as you evaluate new systems. Be sure to meet, interview, identify, and vet the implementation team: the actual consultants and technical experts that you'll be working with day in and day out during the project.

If you do that, your project has a much better chance for success.

Miss the first three mistakes? Read them now:

#1 No Documentation

#2 No Definition of Success or ROI

#3 Limited Involvement from All Departments or Locations
