Why is a Post-ERP Implementation Strategy Just as Important

Why is a Post-ERP Implementation Strategy Just as Important

Why is a Post-ERP Implementation Strategy Important?

At Mantralogix, our ERP consultants spend a lot of time discussing ERP implementation possibilities for many industries and organizations requiring the proper tools to continue to grow. With decades of experience, we want to share the importance of planning for post-ERP implementation activities. If you are preparing to make in investment in an ERP system, don't focus all your attention on activities before and during the implementation. Your post-implementation activities are equally important for your ERP system.  Be sure to read another Mantralogix blog that references useful implementation information - The Key to a Successful Implementation.  

Pre-ERP Implementation Strategy

The lead up to going live with your new ERP system is an exciting experience. It is also mostly what people focus on, and is often what they consider the completion of the process. But, this isn’t the case! The true test of ROI and overall success begins the moment following your go-live event… and even within the first year.

Post-ERP Implementation Strategy

A cause of this can be attributed to the fact that many ERP teams end their work, or go part-time once the system is in place. The ideal scenario is that they will stay on and help guide the company through the process. This post-implementation process should not only consider technology, but should take into account the people when they are determining success.

Ideally, you should be planning your post-implementation activities around, or before your UAT, or User Acceptance Testing. This is the best time to be putting together a strategy that allows you to test the ROI of the people, technology and the processes of your ERP project.

Some activities that your company can put into place within the first year following your ERP implementation are:

  1. Performing a post-implementation review
  2. Transitioning the ERP consultants
  3. Determining a governance strategy
  4. Continued training

And after all of that, don’t forget to do a follow-up on how the post-implementation went! A review system will help you identify issues early, before they become bigger adoption issues. This step will also help you create a channel for feedback from your users, and aid them before they abandon the ERP system. New Call-to-action
