An overview of our services

Our ERP selection consulting aims to minimise your risk when selecting ERP software and providers and focuses on value-adding business processes. We offer tried-and-tested expertise and a transparent fixed price structure to save you time and money in the selection process.

Effective project management is crucial for the success of ERP software implementation in a company, as inadequate planning and uncoordinated control often lead to problems. Using an external ERP project manager with specialist knowledge can minimise the project risk and keep an eye on time and costs.

Our ERP experts specialise in solving problems in ERP projects, whether they are due to communication problems, a lack of employee involvement, poor advice or the wrong system selection. We identify the reasons for project problems and quickly get your project back on track.

The main objective of an ERP project is the successful introduction of a new system that fulfils the requirements defined in the specifications and enables optimal business processes. The focus should also be on integrating future digitalisation strategies and new products or services for customers.

Our experts thoroughly analyse your framework conditions, uncover differences between the actual and target situation and identify potential in management, value creation and support processes. We use employee surveys to tap into additional potential and analyse the data obtained individually. Based on these results, we jointly develop an implementation plan to implement solutions efficiently and cost-effectively, including an assessment of software up-to-dateness and adaptability to your processes as well as possible organisational improvements.

  • First-time implementation: If a company is not yet using an ERP system and is planning to implement one, an ERP selection consultation can help identify the most suitable ERP system.
  • Outdated systems: Companies using outdated or no longer supported ERP systems should consider conducting a selection consultation to select a modern and more powerful system.
  • Lack of efficiency and productivity: If a company finds that its current business processes are not efficient due to limitations of the existing ERP system, a consultation can help find a better solution.
  • Business growth and scalability: As a company grows or expands its operations, it may need to ensure that the ERP system can keep pace with this growth. A selection consultation can help identify a scalable solution.
  • Mergers and acquisitions: When companies merge or are acquired, it may be necessary to consolidate or integrate different ERP systems. In such cases, selection consulting can facilitate the integration process.
  • Industry-specific requirements: Certain industries have specific requirements that may not be fully covered by traditional ERP systems. A selection consultation can help to find an ERP system that is tailored to the specific requirements of an industry.
  • Cost efficiency and budget constraints: Companies with limited budgets need to ensure that they select an ERP system that fits their financial capabilities. A selection consultation can help determine the best price-performance ratio.
  • Compliance requirements: In some industries, there are strict legal regulations and compliance requirements. An ERP system must be able to fulfil these requirements and a selection consultation can help in choosing a suitable system.
  • Lack of in-house expertise: If a company does not have in-house expertise in ERP, working with a selection consultancy can ensure they get the selection process right.

ERP selection consulting can therefore be useful in various scenarios to ensure that a company selects the right ERP system that best meets its specific requirements and objectives. It helps to structure the selection process, make objective decisions and ultimately maximise the value of the ERP investment.

  • Experience and expertise: External project managers bring extensive experience and specialised knowledge to project management, This can help to avoid or effectively manage the typical pitfalls and challenges of ERP implementation.
  • Objectivity: External project managers are usually independent and objective, as they are not involved in internal company policies or hierarchies. This enables an objective assessment of project progress and risks.
  • Focus on core competences: Using external project managers allows your company to focus on its core competences without jeopardising the quality of the ERP implementation.
  • Avoidance of bottlenecks: External project managers can help to prevent or efficiently manage bottlenecks and delays, which optimises project progress.
  • Project management expertise: External project managers bring proven project management methods and tools to ensure project success..
  • Risk minimisation: By identifying risks at an early stage and implementing effective risk management measures, external project managers contribute to the security and stability of the project.
  • Cost control: External project managers help to keep costs within budget and ensure that resources are utilised efficiently.
  • Project transparency: Through clear communication and transparent reporting, external project managers increase transparency and enable better decision-making for management and stakeholders.

Overall, external ERP project management can help increase the likelihood of successful project completion by bringing expertise, objectivity and effective project management, while internal resources and business processes can be maintained.
