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

We guide you to Fit Technology to Your Business Needs. 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.


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


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.


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.

Business Transformation Roadmap

ERP Modernization

You have outgrown your current suite of fragmented business applications. Manual efforts and excel spreadsheets have become some of your most critical applications, not true ERP. This legacy system has created data silos, and getting accurate reports, managing pricing, and shipping is extremely difficult, if not impossible. Call us at (312) 515-9997 to discuss.

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.
