Enterprise Resource Planning

Only 20 percent of companies manage to capture more than half the projected benefits from ERP systems.

By taking a business-driven approach to ERP investments, and placing them in the context of the client's global operating model, we can ensure that business needs and the ERP program are aligned, creating annual benefits of $100 million in some cases.

We focus on a few large structural and process improvement levers such as finance shared services, straight-through order processing, and harmonized customer and purchasing data, where the trade-off between customization and standardization must be evaluated.

Our diagnostics for different business functions help predict the value at stake (at an automotive manufacturer the ERP value diagnostic helped increase the annual rate of return for the business case by 15 percent), and a proven project setup and execution methodology makes sure you realize the value. This is especially important as all too often it is in the later stages of implementation and rollout that organizations fall short of maximizing potential.

By helping build capabilities with a proven change-management program, we help realize the full benefits of such a large-scale IT program over time.
