Before we go ahead and talk about why this is the right time for ERP implementation, let us check out why companies defer or delay implementing ERP and all the risks faced by a company dragging their feet in ERP implementation .
WHY COMPANIES DON’T GO FOR ERP IMPLEMENTATIONS?
- ERP implementation is a distraction from a company’s daily patterned workflow. It involves hard choices, based on the particular customer scenario. Someone has to take the lead and make it happen. It needs initiative and taking responsibility. Top management needs to get involved and be engaged.
- The ROI is not clear. The core benefits of ERP implementation services Dubai are not well understood. A clear answer is required for the question “Why bother?”.
- Cost considerations
- Current Team is comfortable with existing solution and Top management is getting their required reports.
IS NOW A RIGHT TIME FOR AN ERP IMPLEMENTATION?
In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity
So, let’s use this time of crisis as an opportunity to improve your supply chain, business workflow and the like. It is a good time to get your team engaged and motivated to take on a project of this nature. In the end, we will get the clarity of what is to be done for the organization.

When the economy is back on fire, organizations need to be ready for take off. Currently the systems and processes do not provide us visibility and actionable insights – this is what a well-configured ERP implementation can provide. When the economy train starts moving again, we can be well positioned to pivot to higher business and profits.
Smaller systems do not have the flexibility to be configured to enable new processes and new ways and modalities of business. The current and future scenarios require the system to be configurable on-demand to new process flows and the like. Flexibility to integrate e-Commerce, payment gateways, third-party applications have become important.
