ERP is Easy as 1-2-3!
"You’re going to select the ERP this month?” asked the CEO of BetterThanBoxes.
“Yes” said Isabelle, the CFO. “I have a simple way of making decisions.”
The CEO was intrigued. He was interested in anything to make decisions simple so the wait would be over and they could start using a system that would help the business. “What’s the secret recipe?”
“I’ll show you,” said Isabelle. “It’s as easy as 1-2-3.”
“Key to the magic is bringing on a Project Manager to get us all on-course. After that, the steps are simple. First, we put together the show-stopper requirements. This step alone knocks out half of the ERP contenders. Second, we gather the right people onto our company’s Project Team - those who are key people in our company. Third, we know the numbers before starting the demos so that we can make a decision right away. It’s fool-proof.”
Isabelle knew she was right because she had been part of the ‘right people’ in the room at her former company. They had hired a Project Management group who'd led the company through all the steps of systems evaluation and selection.
The Project Manager for Isabelle’s former company had been experienced and genial, making the whole Project Team feel that they were doing something important.
Isabelle felt that she could put the same scenario together, with the help of the Project Management group, and make the magic happen for her new company, BetterThanBoxes.
So, she hired the Project Management group and she put together the list of the right people in the company to be part of the Project Team.
After that, the Project Management group took care of the details. Details such as the requirements, the budgeting, the demonstrations, and the selection process.
For Isabelle, this was as simple as 1-2-3. She had made the right decision. Now she just needed to let the selection process take its course.
To the delight of the CEO, the Project Manager presented all the options in a way that enabled them to select an ERP system quickly - and at a cost much less than expected. In addition, he was presented with a plan for implementation that involved the Project Team.
BetterThanBoxes was moving forward quickly. More data, more sales, more profit ahead!
