5 common mistakes when choosing your ERP

1. Not knowing your needs

When choosing an ERP system, it is important to know the purpose of the process and the purpose of the company. In other words, why do I want an ERP system?

In addition, it is relevant to know which areas or segments of my business I want to target or improve. By taking this into consideration, you will be able to know which features of the ERP system you will need.

In order to solve this problem, you need to familiarize yourself with the ERP system and its different functionalities.


2. Do not prioritize criteria

Often, there is a lack of preparation at the company level and oversights are frequent. It is therefore necessary to establish a system of criteria to choose the right ERP system.

It is important to prioritize your list of criteria. For example, the features my business needs, the price and the support you need are all things to consider.


3. Lack of support from the seller after the sale

It is very important to follow up after the sale of ERP software. We sometimes see a lack of support from the vendor after the sale, which creates problems for companies.

When you buy an ERP system, the ERP expert becomes a business partner. You need to trust them and make sure there is follow-up after the sale.

At Bluebee, with more than 25 years of experience in the field, the after-sales service is very important and the objective is to simplify the processes for the company thanks to our new technologies and our great expertise in the field.


4. Inadequate resources

It is also important to note that implementing an ERP system requires time and resources. That said, as a company, you need to make sure you have a dedicated team for this project and the resources to ensure the system is running smoothly.

In addition, you must have a group of trained people who understand how the system works before it is launched.


5. Underestimating the importance of good project management

Project management is essential for the proper functioning of the ERP system. Good management means that at the beginning of the project, it is important to establish the roles and responsibilities of all project stakeholders.

In addition, a realistic schedule must be established, taking into account the availability of resources and allowing time for contingencies. Finally, rigorous meetings and follow-up reports help avoid moments of hesitation in the project and promote communication between stakeholders.
