Enterprise Resource Consulting is an independent strategy and results-oriented business consulting firm specializing in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. We provide the strategic thinking and professional advice to help clients manage growth and maximize performance in the areas of ERP selection, implementation, business process improvement, and failing implementation project rescue. Independence means that we're 100% technology-agnostic, and have no financial ties to any software vendor or reseller. Our ERP selection specialist will provide the project management services necessary to insure that the best possible software for your business is selected. We will provide cloud consulting (off-site) for your business, whether it is a small wholesale distributor that needs to replace QuickBooks, or a large manufacturer that needs to replace a legacy system, and every business in between. For larger, local process manufacturing clients, we’re pleased to provide the required on-premises consulting. The first consultation is absolutely free, so contact us to see how our specialist will manage your ERP project. Our responsiveness and flexible style make us an invaluable business partner and advisor.
Small to Medium Business
If your business is growing rapidly, you most likely have found that it has outgrown QuickBooks. QuickBooks and Peachtree/Sage 50 are replaced more often than any other business software. Growing businesses need more features, scalability, and real integration than starter software can provide. If you have outgrown QuickBooks or other accounting software, you’ll need ERP professional services to help select a replacement. But how do you choose the right software? By combining our cloud consulting model with our QuickBooks replacement consulting, you can gain the advantage of having a full-service ERP consulting firm on your side, while keeping the cost to an absolute minimum. Our expertise in negotiations with vendors will most likely save you more money than our fee. We’ll guide you to the best possible software for your business, whether it’s a traditional on-premises vendor, a cloud ERP vendor, or one of the open ERP software packages that are available.
Medium to Large Business
If your manufacturing costs are more than they should be, the right ERP system can improve equipment management, procurement procedures, allocation of labor resources, and enhanced planning and control to shorten WIP times. If you have multiple facilities and/or companies, multiple systems can be integrated into one system or database, to allow for consolidated reporting. Improved job costing and estimating accuracy will generate ROI as will a reduction in selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) costs. Improved inventory accuracy will eliminate the paradox of too many stock-outs while at the same time having too much money invested in inventory.
Which of these are concerns for your business?
The business has outgrown the current system
What ROI can be expected from a new ERP system?
How long does it take to implement ERP?
There is too much reliance on Excel spreadsheets
The existing legacy software is heavily customized and difficult to support
Better information is needed to make pricing decisions
It’s difficult to determine how much inventory is in the warehouse(s)
Month-end closing takes too long
Running out of stock on components and/or too much inventory
You may review an in-depth analysis of these issues on our blog.
While conducting an assessment of your business, we will categorize your unique needs and objectives, and create a Return On Investment Analysis to determine whether replacing your legacy system is necessary and justifiable. Whether selecting, implementing, or rescuing your system, we’ll assess the situation by truly listening, and develop a plan that fits the unique requirements of your business. Here is a sample of the document we’ll create:
Of crucial importance to your Enterprise Resource Planning project is the consultant that you choose. Allow us to suggest that you review the pdf “Why you should engage ERC for Your Project”.
