Entitled "Ten Tips for a Successful ERP Implementation: A Guide for Multi-Channel Merchants, Internet Retailers, Publishers, and Fulfillment Solutions Providers," the free 13-page white paper includes detailed strategies for reducing the errors that increase costs and delay the critical "go-live" date. Specifically, the paper covers everything from appointing a project manager and developing a top-down communications strategy to scheduling user testing and training, as well as managing expectations throughout the process.
"When companies decide to implement a new ERP system, they often make the mistake of not creating a full action plan that covers all aspects of the implementation - including helping people within the organization accept change, communicating the business case to employees, and allocating time for training," said Morse Data vice president of software systems Tony Marchese. "The implementation is then riddled with problems and set-backs, which increases costs and delays. This white paper will help companies considering an ERP implementation avoid these classic mistakes as well as keep the implementation within budget and on schedule."
