Our ERP Implementation Process
- Our ERP implementation process is thorough but straightforward. We begin with in-depth business analysis in order to understand the working methodologies as well as to identify any existing gaps and weak points in the process.
- Next, in addition to manually inquiring about the struggles of the workplace, our team prepares a Business Requirements Document (BRD). This outlines the situation as it is and provides a feasible solution to the problem. In fact, a BRD is the ultimate guideline for any business. It includes key factors like project overview and scope, potential successes and limitations, along with a timeline and budget, and more.
- When it comes to software development, on the other hand, we follow a combination of the Agile and Waterfall methodologies. We have a highly skilled team based in North America, that handles the front-end of the ERP implementation process, while our ERP developers handle back-end matters such as the coding and testing of the software.
- Our main goal, at Bista Solutions Inc., is to support our clients by selecting and implementing the best technological tools available for their business.
When do you need an ERP implementation?
Our customers include companies with revenues in tens of millions to public limited companies with revenues in billions. Here some signs that your business is giving if you need process automation:
- Most of your processes are manual and require automation
- You have a legacy software system that has worked well over the years but is fast approaching obsolescence. In today’s competitive world, it is necessary to make the most of the latest and greatest technologies
- You have outgrown the standard accounting package that helped you while you were smaller
- You have too many software systems and need to consolidate
- You find your existing system too expensive and want something more affordable
- You need to be compliant with industry regulations
Key considerations while choosing the right ERP implementation solution
- Understanding complexities of ERP implementation – Decision makers and leaders often underestimate the complex challenges of ERP. This is why picking the right ERP implementation partner is key. More often than not, this can result from failure to deliver suitable integration expertise, ultimately, hindering you from achieving your business goals.
- Understanding the power of cloud ERP – Traditional ERP integrations might not meet evolving business needs because they do not support new requirements such as multi-cloud integration.
- Choosing a scalable solution – The integration tools and techniques that supported older and outdated ERP deployments are usually not agile enough to support new innovation goals. Organizations must continuously extend the capabilities of ERP.
Checklist for your ERP implementation solution
- Know the cost – When you’re planning a project as large as an ERP implementation, it’s easy to overlook some cost areas. This is especially true when the individual costs can be hard to estimate—for example, the costs of providing online training for staff or doing a hands-on start-up.
- Define the benefits – Understand the ways an ERP solution can affect your business. Along with this also, look at the benefits your implementation partner can deliver. If you see potential in your partner to deliver the benefits you listed, you can move on to the next step.
- Do the math – Return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) can clarify the value of an ERP implementation. The calculation process can be as simple or advanced as you need it to be. In many cases, you can start with ballpark estimates of benefits and costs. For the numbers that look good, you can proceed. In other areas, you may need to dig into the details before you’re confident of your forecast.
