Functionality and Ease of Use
Yes, ERP success needs to be measured on hard numbers to justify its cost, but it should be equally judged on its ease of use. In other words, will it make your employees’ lives easier in the long run? It’s crucial that you work closely with every ERP end user in your company to understand their day-to-day tasks and align your new software to streamline activities. What specific processes will your ERP be intended to support? Go through the modules you are implementing, where they will be implemented and what each workflow will look like once the system has been put in place.
Bottom line: User adoption needs to be a priority when it comes to your ERP project goals. If no one uses the system to input information or support their work, it is just an empty piece of software—certainly not worth the significant investment you made in it.
Your ERP project goals will need to cover a wide range of factors and figures within your company in order for the implementation to have the structure it needs to succeed. In addition to ROI and cost reduction, an ERP project team needs to keep broader goals in mind—including ease of use and the long-term sustainability of the software. By combining specific, short-term ERP project goals with broad, long-term plans for the future of your software and your business, you can build a solid structure to ensure your company thrives for years to come.
