When you go to a new ERP system, you are really changing your company and putting it in place to go forward. Some companies get blind-sided because they do not really understand the depth of change that is going to happen. There is no doubt it is a good change if done right, but the first step is to accept that change. Otherwise, you and your company may be doomed.
In addition to understanding it yourself, you need to prepare your employees for the weeks and months ahead. Be completely clear on the implementation steps, so everyone knows what to expect. It is definitely not going to be easy. ERP software requires more information, has more disciplined processes, and is ultimately more work in the beginning. The truth is your employees are not going to like it, but they will thank you in the end because in a few years, your business will still be booming and they will still have a job.
The fact of the matter is ERP software changes the front end and back end of your organization so that you can scale to the demands of market upswings and downswings. You will be able to compete with the big guys and make the path for optimal growth.
