ERP Implementation

Mangosis’s ERP Implementation Services

Our multi-step implementation process has helped over 300 manufacturing and distribution companies optimize their business processes. Here are our main areas of focus in an ERP Implementation project:

Pre-Implementation Expertise
During the business process improvement phase, we will help you define your key performance indicators and a reporting strategy as part of the future state.

ERP Project Management
Our project managers are experts in managing and leading client and vendor teams towards a successful ERP implementation.

Change Management
Organizational change management is a key part of process improvement, and therefore a key part of every ERP implementation. We will guide your client team every step of the way in the development of a change management plan.

ERP Education
Our team excels at setting up and delivering effective ERP education materials to the manufacturing enterprise. All process owners must become “ERP experts” in their own right in order for a successful implementation and go-live. A thorough ERP education helps with ERP adoption and effectiveness in the years to come.

Design and Configuration
Mangosis offers guidance to both the manufacturer and vendor team when designing and configuring the system to meet specific business requirements.

ERP Data Conversion
Mangosis’s consultants are experts in ERP data conversion and management. During the review of the current state and the development of the future state, we will map a data strategy for the conversion of data files, both current and historic. Mangosis will assist the client IT team with the planning and execution of data conversion to a new system.

Quality Control
Mangosis has significant experience designing an effective development/test phase for extensive testing of the new system in conference room pilot environments. We will lead in-depth sessions for testing of processes, integration and workflow.

Deploy/Go-Live
Mangosis assists in the final deploy and go-live after thoroughly managing and tracking the pilot, tests, data migration/integration and fixes or customizations and other pre-deployment phases. Mangosis will help your company turn the focus onto user instruction, user documentation and training with the entire user community. Finally, the team finalizes the “cutover” plan of activities, and revises as needed to minimize disruptions to the operation.

Deliver Business Performance Improvements
Mangosis will ensure the project team keeps their eye on the true goal: business process improvement. All too often ERP teams lose sight of the true goals of the project yielding to the desire to “just get it implemented.” Mangosis’s change management activities keep everyone’s attention on driving business process improvement that drives business performance improvement.

Most manufacturers judge an ERP implementation by the initial expense, ongoing operating or maintenance costs, return on investment, and time-to-value.

In today’s competitive business climate, we suggest an even more rigorous focus on enterprise software implementation by tracking additional metrics like disruptions in operations, impact on productivity, and level of ERP adoption across the enterprise.

Unfortunately, there are many horror stories of failed ERP implementations, cost over-runs, time delays, disruptions in operations and more. Now, mid-market manufacturers can avoid these pitfalls with our proven ERP expertise.
