ERP Advisor's Primary Service is the ERP Project Health Assessment, which

provides an impartial review of your project to highlight plan deviations

to help you achieve a successful project

ERP PROJECT HEALTH ASSESSMENT

The ERP Project Health Assessment process helps ensure that your ERP project continues to achieve its milestones on schedule and within budget. If deviations from expected milestone timelines, spending, or projected project completion date occur, corrective actions will be detailed in a report to Project Management and the Project Steering Committee.  The ERP Project Health Assessment will normally be conducted on-site for 3-4 days every 4-6 weeks depending on the length and complexity of your project.  The first review will normally occur two weeks after the project kick-off to ensure that no early milestones are missed that could cause serious downstream problems with the overall implementation plan.  This service also includes participation in go-live readiness assessments.

 

ERP Advisor offers Additional Services to help you select the best ERP software,

to engage executive management in your project, to ensure that your project

team and executive management are operating under the same assumptions

when the project begins, and to help assess best practices and lessons

learned once your project has concluded

POST PROJECT ASSESSMENT AND BEST PRACTICES SUMMARY

It is important to understand what worked for your project and document those best practices so that these successes will be repeated on future projects.  It is equally important to understand what didn’t work as expected and document those lessons learned in order to determine how to avoid those problems on future projects.  In addition, it is important to define and implement a process to capture benefits to validate payback and ROI assumptions made in justifying the ERP project. ERP Advisor can help you achieve these project close-out activities.
