A 29 Day ERP Go-Live
You invested in an ERP software with a promised three month go-live, and further phases of implementation to be rolled out in the following year. But now, it is 12 months past the Go-Live date and you haven’t fully gone live. Customisation and enhancements are still going on, with no end in sight. You’ve exceeded your original budget. Your team is frustrated, productivity has stagnated and your board of directors is asking for a justification on your investment. Sound familiar?
At FACT, we hear this story from our clients all the time. We are tired of this model of ERP implementation. We know first-hand the importance of a rapid Go-Live and getting back to what’s important - your business.
Business impact of long ERP implementations
Most companies struggle with setting and following through on an ERP implementation timeline - and 57% of companies face longer implementation timelines than expected.
ERP implementation timelines largely focus on your desired modules, data migration, deployment locations and number of staff. Requiring ERP customisation as your business evolves in scale and complexity is also a major factor. During the implementation process these can continue to vary as your business requirements and processes progress and change. This causes implementation delays on the previously agreed timeline.
Once delays begin to occur during the process of implementation, business milestones can be missed and processes broken. We see this especially when a business’ staff is poorly prepared for such a large-scale project. A significant amount of time and money is spent combating this. This is how ERP implementation can prove to be more counterproductive than beneficial to your business, impacting productivity and ROI.
We offer a software and implementation program that helps your business go live in just 29 days during the first phase. We don’t make unrealistic promises and aim to heighten your business’ productivity in the committed time.
The FACT 29 Day Implementation Process
Prior to implementation, we give our prospective clients a clear-cut timeline. We start collecting your business details at the early stage of Live Demos so we can hit the ground running once you decide to invest in FACT. Upon confirmation from your team, our ERP Consultants collaborate with you to ensure that the best solution is delivered based on your requirements.
Our 29 day timeline is Stage One of Implementation and Training. We equip your ERP system with five crucial pillars so that you can go live and start making productivity gains within just 29 days:
Tax & Compliances
With these pillars in place, you make massive productivity gains in just 29 days on all of your essential business processes.
After the 29 day implementation, you can then move on to implementing additional modules over time. This is Stage Two & Beyond, the post go-live stage, where your ERP is enhanced and configured to fit your business needs.
We work with you to create a timeline that makes sense for your company, rather than promising a full go-live. We aren’t in the business of making unrealistic promises. The truth is that ERP implementation brings important changes to your business process, and it is important to budget the necessary time to complete them. We are completely transparent in our implementation estimates – that is why we boast one of the shortest timelines within the industry.
Once your ERP is fully implemented, we continue to provide support to you and your business, as well as continuously improving on our software with over 500 updates annually.
