Replacing Outdated ERP Software: How to minimize the risk and maximize the return
Time & Location
About the Event
ERP is the core operating software for any business, and mid-market companies often outgrow it. Chris Doig, CEO of Wayferry will share the ERP litmus test, the #1 sign that your software needs replacing. Since the new ERP is much more work than expected, he will review the 5 costs incurred by companies that shortcut the process.
ERP is expensive, and you really want to change it from an expense to an investment with a real return. Chris will show you how to estimate the project ROI because you should only proceed if there is sufficient ROI. He will follow this by explaining how to align your new ERP so that it delivers what is
needed to achieve business goals.
Buying ERP is complicated and it’s a bit like repairing an engine of a plane while in flight. Chris will share a secret: why ERP is a business decision, not an IT decision. In plain business language he will explain WHAT must be done, HOW to do it and WHY it needs to be done. He will conclude with a brief overview of the 6 phases in every successful ERP project.
Chris published a book “Rethinking Enterprise Software Selection: Stop buying square pegs for round holes.” It’s available on Amazon, but he will send a free pdf copy to any attendee on request.
