The implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is a common strategy for companies to improve efficiency and support future growth. However, this implementation process is lengthy, costly, and complex, bringing various problems and challenges.

Let’s further explain the five biggest challenges in ERP system implementation.

  • Challenge 1: Costs and complexity of ERP systems

Purchasing an enterprise information system can be financially demanding for small and medium-sized businesses. It is therefore important to carefully assess the benefits of implementing an ERP system, clearly define expectations, and compare available market options considering financial capabilities.

In this situation, expert consultants play a significant role by recommending the best solution based on an analysis of business processes and utilizing their experience for successful implementation.

  • Challenge 2: Integration with existing systems

Besides ERP systems, many companies also use other software platforms. Ensuring compatibility with the enterprise system can be challenging. Quality consultants have an important role in thoroughly examining internal processes.

Based on this analysis, areas where systems overlap and potential issues can be identified. Consultants also assist in creating an integration plan that takes into account your company’s specifications.

  • Challenge 3: Change acceptance and management

During ERP system implementation, we often face challenges related to organizational changes. These changes may encounter resistance from employees who tend to be conservative and have concerns about job security.

Effectively managing the transition to the new solution is crucial, which includes adapting employees, providing training, and presenting the benefits of the ERP system. A comprehensive adoption plan, including user training and technical support, greatly facilitates achieving this goal. It is also advantageous to involve employees themselves in the implementation process.

  • Challenge 4: Data migration

Data migration from existing systems to the new solution is an important aspect of implementation. This process is demanding and complex, requiring high accuracy and completeness to avoid data loss and disruption to company operations.

A reliable ERP solution provider addresses this issue through thorough analysis of migrated data, creating a detailed migration plan, and utilizing specialized software that automates migration and ensures completeness.

  • Challenge 5: Project management

Implementing an ERP system is a complex project that requires absolute priority within your company. Underestimating this project’s management can lead to delays, budget overruns, and failure to meet initial requirements.

Collaboration with experienced consultants is crucial in this case as they bring expertise and practical experience. It is key to have clearly defined project managers from the customer’s side and the ERP system provider, who will be responsible for the implementation. It is also important to select key personnel for different areas of the company under their leadership.
