Be prepared!

Installing an ERP takes time. Think for example of data transfer, (test) conversions, training and testing. Preparing well is everything. In this way, the new ERP system can be incorporated into your organisation faster and more thoroughly:

  • Never rush an implementation
  • Make good agreements with your ERP partner: draw up a clear schedule with various small deadlines.
  • Test sufficiently and make adjustments in good time.
  • Involve a core team of employees in the implementation and preparation.
