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

We utilize your business processes, master data, and reports to choose a business technology solution (ERP) that presents the best fit for your organization. This program converts business technology solution discussions to facts that enable your specific business to succeed, not a generic marketing pitch that highlights the vendors strengths. Our approach identifies gaps that lead to cost overruns and business technology solutions implementation 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. We can focus on one mission critical area or document this in a comprehensive manner.


Next, we focus on the information such as pricing, part numbers, etc. that "feeds" your business technology system. This data is commonly referred to as "master data," and it must be accurate to realize the true business benefit from your new or upgraded business technology solution. Lack of accurate master data is consistently listed as one of the top three reasons for business technology solution (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 your 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 business technology (ERP) system. Forms and interfaces are listed as a top reason for business technology solution (ERP) failure.
