Learning from the mistakes of others

If you don’t want to make any mistakes when selecting and implementing an ERP system, you should check your decision against the management consultancy’s negative hit list. The company analyzed 102 ERP consulting projects in order to put a name to the error devils.

90% of the companies surveyed did not compare the ERP systems in question in terms of their cost/benefit ratio. This is one of the reasons why in 80% of cases inefficient order handling processes were cemented and systems with too much complexity were installed. Experience shows that only 15% of the available and paid-for functions in ERP systems are actually used. A review of this decision by external specialists is therefore essential.

Abels & Kemmner recommends that the first thing to do is to design future rational organizational processes. Based on this, a company should select suitable ERP systems in an initial selection stage. In a second selection stage, these were to be examined more closely on the basis of our own data. The functionalities must also be evaluated from a cost-benefit perspective before a decision can be made that also makes economic sense.
