Top 10 Key Elements to a Successful ERP System Deployment-Key Element #7

September 11, 2018

AIT’s Professional Services Group is responsible for managing the implementation of an ERP deployment, making sure the project is properly resourced and executed. Our role with clients really starts during the sales process where we gather information about the company, its requirements, and the unique problems it is trying to solve. We get an idea of the personality and culture of the company. That gives us a great head start to hit the ground running after a contract is signed. AIT has developed a list of the top 10 keys to successful ERP deployment.


Top 10 Key Elements to a Successful ERP System Deployment


  1. Develop a project mission statement

  2. Get executive team commitment

  3. Identify and define the scope; map requirements to objectives

  4. Establish methodology, realistic resources, and timeline

  5. Identify, designate, and support key personnel

  6. Prepare your data

  7. Create a training plan

  8. Conduct pilots to work out the kinks

  9. Take steps to ensure things progress as expected

  10. Measure results


Create a training plan


At the beginning of the project, we determine what modules will require training and a develop strategy for education. We will work with your team to provide a mutually acceptable step-by-step training agenda and will schedule it into the overall implementation. This is typically handled with a two-phased approach.


The first phase includes standard training on how CloudSuite™ Industrial (Syteline) works out of the box, including best practices. The training comprises a combination of online training, with self and instructor led approaches. The second phase includes a more targeted onsite instructor-led method of working through our clients’ specific processes to provide operational alignment.
