The key players in the digital process aren’t simply the members of your IT team. At the very beginning of your planning process, consider taking the time to speak to those involved in your Sales or Finance operations, or someone on the Accounting team who handles income statements and can give you insight into how a typical accounting period runs. By doing so, you’ll better understand your overall operations and will be able to fully communicate your objectives and vision to your supplier.Using these details and your business’ yearly activities, you’re now in a better position to build out a schedule, which will include milestones and important dates along the digitization path.
Defining and following through with your ERP implementation can be tricky, but with the right partner, you can ensure objectives are clear and met along the way.
All that said, before you write off the idea of digitizing your business, take the time to learn more about roles and responsibilities, costs and benefits and the importance of a knowledgeable team - both internally and externally. You want to work with a NetSuite implementation partner that you can be open with about your budget, schedule and objectives - these are basically the main pillars of a proper plan. To learn more about how digitally transforming your business - if you haven’t already started - will support your current operations and ensure growth with future projects, contact the knowledgeable members of our own GURUS team.
