According to studies without proper planning, about 70% of implementations ended up as failures. How can you avoid that? By choosing a right ERP implementation partner. From planning through go-live and beyond, ERP implementation life cycle is the process of deploying enterprise resource planning software. The typical implementation journey is six to 12 months but can differ from 3 to 6 months or 12 to 18 months, according to the size of the organization and business needs.
The implementation life-cycle involves project planning and funding, team organization, selection of ERP technology and installation and go-live and beyond.
The entire ERP implementation life cycle is difficult, long and tedious; and requires a partner like Prudence who has the relevant experience and expertise to shorten and simplify the life cycle wherever possible along with making the journey seamless. We, at Prudence, believe in maximizing your return on investment.
