Switch / Change?
Switching an ERP System from your company’s Eco-system is a daunting task as it requires tremendous planning and participation from all employees. As time passes by, you might end up noticing that your ERP system is not functioning to the mark you would expect it to be. Employees might have issues updating new information, or simply the ERP system needs to be updated with new functionalities.
Sometimes, the process in itself can cause an issue with the current ERP system. If an ERP system expects things to be done in an order of 1-2-3-4, employees have to adhere to that way of action. Mapping out the employee journey is a crucial aspect which helps in determining any possible loopholes which can be eliminated with a new/updated ERP system.
Following are some factors to watch out for to avoid mishap and ensure a smooth transition onto a new/updated ERP system.

- On-boarding every employee about the new ERP system/changes
- Compatibility of ERP software with other software’s in use.
