Pace have developed an approach to implementing ERP systems that avoids the common issues; spiralling costs, overt complexity, resistance to change, scalability and flexibility, or post-implementation problems. Head of Optimisation, Colin Gibbs reveals five ways to ensure your ERP implementation is successful. Watch the video now:

The $60.65bn ERP market is nearly always synonymous with “system”, be it SAP, Oracle or Microsoft. However, over years of evolution and learning Pace have developed a more holistic approach maps human interactions, processes and detailed system requirements across an entire organisation to an ERP system. The results are a centralised blueprint from which an organisation can start to realise savings efficiencies and zero critical issues at implementation and go-live.

In its greatest success, the Pace Optimisation team oversaw a major ERP implementation for a global electronics and media organisation and distilled the operations in over 50 countries into a single platform. This project aimed for 80% standardisation of processes to cap costs of systems adaption and customisation. By taking a holistic approach another client was able to achieve 95% standardisation with no “Priority 1” operational issues at go-live. 

To achieve the maximum cost savings, efficiencies, and achieve change successfully with zero issue implementations at go-live, here are the five core
points to Pace’s approach:

1. View an ERP implementation as a people and business project, not a technology project.

2. Map every interaction and then mine your data to verify those interactions.

3. Adapt and adopt.

4. Find the right implementation partner.

5. Evolution, not revolution.

Pace analyses the way people work and interact with each other to solve inefficiencies. In our experience, that’s where the problems tend to start. By asking the right questions and looking in the right places, we reveal the truth quickly – and use what we find to provide the best solution.

We believe that empowering people to work freely and reach their potential – with help from the right tech mix – is the best way to improve efficiency in the workplace.
