Often, the whole reason for embracing a complete ERP software solution is to streamline business processes, to improve profitability and make data-driven decisions. Without proper use of the system by staff, these goals will be short changed and profitability and efficiency will suffer.
To get the best results from all of the hard work put into new ERP implementation, a company must ensure that everyone using the system is comfortable and confident in its use. Training staff will also help company culture. If employees feel confident in the decision to switch to this system, they will embrace its use and use it properly, which will ensure ideal results.
To get the best results with new ERP software, provide plenty of opportunities to learn.
- Scheduled, instructor-led computer-based classes from the software partner are available. These classes give users the ability to work through demonstrations of the software for their business function with help from an instructor and the ability to ask specific questions relating to the new system.
- Scheduled, instructor-led classes at software training centers.
- Some software companies offer pre-recorded, on-demand training sessions for major aspects of the software. These are available 24/7, so scheduling is not a concern. These are also handy for times when only certain parts of the training or retraining are needed.
- Software implementors, like Parallel Solutions, can also help companies train new employees, retrain staff and offer general assistance to expand software use.
Parallel Solutions will work with a company onsite or via web conference to provide training and consulting assistance as needed. If you’re considering a new ERP system, give us a call at (440) 498-9920.
