So you know what enterprise resource planning (ERP) is and you know how it can streamline your business processes and help your company grow. You may think it’s just a simple matter of buying the product you want and then letting it work its magic – but that’s not always the case, especially when integrating your old system into a new one.
You may also not know how to fully utilize your ERP software, possibly losing out on opportunities to cut down time and costs. So even if you think that hiring an ERP consultant is just a waste of money, you may be surprised to learn how much money and time you are wasting while struggling to integrate an ERP system into your business on your own, or even by possibly purchasing the wrong kind of ERP software.
Experience You Can Count On
An employee at your company may only experience an ERP implementation once or twice in their career, and chances are that even you have limited experience with ERP systems. ERP consultants work with businesses every day to adopt enterprise software and business systems, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Human Resource Management (HRMS), and IT services.
ERP consultants use their vast experience to listen to your needs and expectations, enabling them to implement the perfect ERP software for your company with a painless, guided transition.
Change Can Be Overwhelming
The whole process of implementing a new ERP system can be overwhelming enough, but what happens after the crossover is complete and you’re left with entirely new processes and workflows? Consultants like the ones and IWI Consulting Group, a Sage Canada Software partner, will work with you from the start of the implementation process to the end, and also provide you with timely technical support and self-learning resources, like videos, tip sheets, and hands-on training, to ensure that you aren’t left in the dark.

Solutions for Any Industry
The other advantage of an ERP consultant is that they know which kind of ERP software will benefit your industry the most. Many enterprise management providers offer a comprehensive array of features to cover any aspect of a business for almost any industry, including accounting firms, franchises, healthcare, hospitality, nonprofits, and many more.
But sometimes even that kind of coverage isn’t enough to meet all of your unique business needs.
An ERP consulting company can provide you with custom development options to address the missing features that you are looking for in your software. They will adapt your ERP software and create custom builds with future upgrades in mind so that you don’t have to worry about software changes that may affect your ERP system.
So, when it comes time to digitize your company with the next enterprise resource software solution, don’t hesitate to hire an ERP consultant who can manage every aspect of implementation. Take the hassle and worry out of adapting to new software, get training for you and your employees, and simply enjoy the benefits of an automated ERP system.
