5 Elements of Successful a Sage 100cloud Software Implementation

Written by Annette Manias on Sep 1, 2022 1:00:30 PM

Here's the Path to a Successful Sage 100cloud Implementation

Not every software implementation is the same because every company has requirements unique to your own business. However, there are common elements we've seen in the hundreds of Sage 100cloud software implementations we've completed to date at Oasis. Make sure you incorporate these five elements to help you avoid costly mistakes and ensure a successful implementation.

1. Needs Analysis

The key to any successful ERP implementation is starting off with the right ERP for your business. Since there are many ERP solutions, it’s critical to make sure you select the right solution to meet the needs of your specific business requirements.

But before selecting an ERP, decide if your business will require on-premise or can opt for cloud/SaaS deployment. For some companies that work with government agencies or have other compliance requirements, make sure you know what your needs are.Start Your Journey with the Oasis Analysis

2. Seek User Buy-In

Get buy-in from stakeholders and end-users. Any ERP migration is prone to challenges no matter which solution you select. To set up yourself up for success, you’ll want to enlist an executive sponsor who will shepherd the project and drive buy-in. For smooth adoption to occur, it’s crucial to involve users at all levels in the needs analysis to identify their use and processes utilizing the current software.

3. Trust an Experienced Partner

Find an experienced ERP consultant with specific experience in your industry. Relying on a guide with experience increases the odds of you having a successful implementation. Your business will likely go through 2-3 implementations in its lifetime, while an experienced ERP consultant has successfully completed dozens or hundreds. For example, at Oasis, we’ve helped hundreds of companies adopt Sage 100cloud and other ERP solutions.

4. Test Before Going Live

An experienced ERP consultant will guide you on the best way to roll out your new solution. You'll have a number of options. A phased approach, also referred to as a parallel roll-out, is typical. If you made it a priority to ensure the data going into your system is clean, your go-live will be smoother.

5. Ongoing Training

Don’t skimp on ongoing training and user communication. It’s not just your accounting and operation processes that change when you get a new ERP system. You’re also updating many business processes. You’ll want an ERP consultant to guide your organization while you adapt to the software, especially in the first few months.

You may discover the need for modifications as you begin working in your new system. You may need custom reports, extra training or workflow modifications. Keep an ongoing line of communication with your users to help drive adoption and prevent users from bypassing the new system. If users still work outside the system, it’s not as effective as full adoption. 

Sage 100cloud Supports Multiple Industries

When it’s time to change software, a proven solution like Sage 100cloud may be a good fit for you. Unfortunately, a great majority of companies exceed their ERP implementation budget. Luckily, these days, SMBs have an advantage when adopting new SaaS/cloud ERP technology.
