Revitalization Tips and Tricks
Rescue and Revitalization Projects
Your business has grown. Congratulations! But now, your current ERP software is no longer delivering all the functionality you need. Assuming that you have a budget and you only have X dollars to spend on a remedy, the question is how and where to spend those dollars wisely.
You have 3 options.
Upgrade to the newest version of your current ERP software
Buy new ERP software
Optimize and fine-tune the version of your ERP software that you’re currently running
Options 1 and 2 are the most obvious solutions. But they also tend to be quite expensive. Even if you have the budget for a significant upgrade or new software, option 3 is worth serious consideration. In most cases, revitalizing your current software would be both the quickest and most cost-effective alternative.
There are many factors that need to be considered.
How old is your current ERP software?
Is it still supported?
Have you already installed all the patches that have been released?
What updates and/or upgrades are available?
Would your current system integrate easily with any third-party add-ons that cloud deliver the incremental functionality you need?
Consider also these 3 scenarios
1. Your business has changed and evolved
Change is a constant! However, your systems and processes may not have been updated to deal with the changes.
We will help you assess where there are opportunities to improve your processes and fine-tune your Dynamics 365 Business Central/NAV system.
2. Your system is not fully integrated
Often, new applications such as CRM have been added, but they’re operating as technology islands that are not integrated with your ERP.
We will review your systems, recommend integration options, and tie the systems together. This reduces non-valued added work and streamlines the organization.
3. You lack visibility into daily operations
There’s a lot going on every day, and a lot of valuable information and data is being created. But not everyone can see it.
We will help you get critical data in front of the appropriate users, allowing them to manage their roles more efficiently and productively.
It’s a fact, but a little-known fact, that most companies running ERP software use only a fraction of the capabilities available. This can occur for any of several reasons, for example:
When the software was initially implemented, there were disparate solutions still in use for certain capabilities that the company wanted to keep, such as separate e-commerce, CRM, or HR software.
The implementation was scheduled to occur in phases, but only phase one was completed.
Insufficient training or employee turnover
Getting more value from your investment
You have already invested a lot in Dynamics 365 Business Central/NAV. Now it’s time to get more out of your system.
Liberty Grove will work with you and make recommendations for optimizing your current ERP software. We can also discuss integrating third-party add-ons that will round out your solution, so you can achieve the level of functionality on Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) that your growing business requires.
Revitalizing your ERP may involve automating workflows or just showing your users where opportunities exist to leverage the current system. We will look at every possible option for delivering maximum value to your organization.
We will develop an action plan that allows you to get a higher return on your investment. But if your best option is an upgrade or new software, we’ll let you know that, too.
