Industry best practice on your ERP implementation

Rukshan B.


“Industry best practices” is a common term in the ERP world, where most of the ERPs utilize standard practices in the industry to build their ERP solutions. Best practices are a collection of norms & methods which are commonly accepted as successful practices by the industry professional and successful entities. In the context of ERP solutions, integrating industry best practices are important to fasten the implementation process and benefit from industry best practices that are tested and proven to be effective.

Industry-specific ERP solutions with industry best practices would provide a greater level of adaptability within the particular industry and its micro-verticals with minimum configurations and customizations. The below illustration explains the exact benefits of using Industry-specific ERP solutions compared to the traditional ERP implementation approach.

Every company has their way of doing things and completely replacing those workflows would alienate employees resulting lack of support for the new initiatives. On the other hand, our years of experience in implementing ERP is that no company is going to adopt an ERP as it is without personalizing it to the company. The interfaces, documents etc. are some frequently configured items that become different from one to another. Also, in many companies, there are unique configurations that might associate with their differential factors from others. An industry-specific ERP solution comes with a greater percentage of industry-best practices built-in within the system.

Benefits of having the best practices on your ERP implementation.

  • Quick delivery with a predictable outcome.
  • Incorporation of industry practices to align workflows according to successful similar companies.
  • Professionally produced technical solutions.
  • Broadly tested and verified with fewer possible errors and risks.
