Enterprise software is constantly changing. For example, Infor, Epicor®, and other ERP vendors frequently roll out upgrades that can change best practices. A CIP will prepare your business to adapt to these changes by determining how your business will upgrade your software (phase-in by department or simultaneous) with new training and possible workflow changes.
This will allow you to feel confident that your team will be ready for changes rather than scrambling to get everything in order.
Finalize Post-Live Operations
It’s not uncommon for customizations and adjustments to be made after enterprise software is live. This is due to the many (possible) unexpected roadblocks that accompany software implementation. With disruptions and unknowns, it just makes sense to push some tasks off to after you’re live.
By incorporating a CIP, you can ensure your post-live tasks are all completed, and you can map out the most time and cost-effective timeline for these post-live operations. Otherwise, you may find customizations and other important tasks are forgotten or neglected and aren’t there when your employees need them. Your CIP can ensure your business achieves everything you set out to with your software.
Enterprise software isn’t meant to work out of the box. For this reason, we recommend fitting it to your business processes and data. Datix conducts business process modeling to adequately fit your software to your business process. That being said, this doesn’t mean you should just model your software to your business process for your implementation. Your business will look different three years from now; growth, technological advances, and other changes will affect the ways that your enterprise operates, communicates, and services your customers.
A CIP will help your software keep up with business growth and changes. By avoiding processes that don’t support your business, you will optimize efficiency and eliminate weak software and lost profits.
At Datix, our consultants will take the time to learn your business process and develop a flexible software CIP that will help your business benefit from your software for years to come. We are enterprise software experts and offer a myriad of solutions–ERP, CRM, and eCommerce to name a few.
