We guide your firm to fit technology
to your business purpose.

Cloud Readiness Assessment (CRA)

Is a cloud solution for infrastructure, storage, ERP, shipping, security, etc. right for your business? Although it is very popular to “go to the cloud” for everything, the correct answer is not always. Our executive advisory team of ex-CIO and finance leaders will help you assess your current situation and fit technology specifically to business needs. The answer may be a hybrid solution, staying “on-premise”, or pure cloud. We will guide you and help you execute a plan that fits your needs.

Intelligent ERP Planning - Process | Data | Productivity (PDP)

We guide you to Fit Technology to Your Business Purpose. We utilize your firm’s business processes, master data, and management reports as a competitive advantage, and to choose a software solution that presents the best fit. This program streamlines the ERP marketing discussion(s) to facts that enable your specific business, and it also identifies gaps that lead to cost overruns and/or ERP failure. As a bonus, it also prepares your internal team for the rigors of implementation and the organizational discipline necessary to achieve success.

Process

We start the PDP by capturing and visualizing your end-to-end business processes with an eye towards improvement






Data

Next, we focus on the information that "feeds" your business system. This data is commonly referred to as "master data," and it must be accurate to realize the true business benefit from your new PDP plan. Lack of accurate master data is consistently listed as one of the top three reasons for ERP failure.


Productivity

The last stage of the PDP plan is called productivity. This involves capturing all current and must-have reports/dashboards that you use to run the business. It also captures and highlights all the interfaces and forms (i.e. invoices, purchase orders, etc.) you will need to change in a new ERP system. Forms and interfaces are also listed as a top reason for ERP failure.

ERP Modernization

Is your legacy system holding you back? Have you made the decision to modernize to a Cloud ERP system? You don’t have to take this journey alone. Work with IT GuidePoint to Plan your Path forward.

Our methodology guides you to utilize your firm’s processes, master data and reports as a competitive advantage, and to choose a software package that presents the best fit. This program streamlines the ERP sales discussion to facts that enable your specific business and identifies gaps that generally lead to cost overruns and/or ERP failure. It also prepares your internal team for the rigors of implementation and the discipline necessary to achieve success.

ERP Rescue

Sometimes ERP implementations get off target. IT GuidePoint understands how to get your ERP implementation back on track. We start with a concentrated intelligent ERP plan called Process | Data | Productivity (PDP) and then we create a prioritized list of corrective actions to gain control of the initiative. These action items are anchored to your goals, timeline, and budget.

We understand that ERP failure can be stressful, so we provide you with a process and a plan to get back on track.

Your ERP is limiting your growth
