There are a lot of resources for learning ERP processes: the set-up and other elements important to optimizing performance and efficiency in your business processes management.
Today, we were surprised to read about one of the key elements in learning ERP implementation we continually communicate about with our clients: patience. Careful planning and auditing of the ERP implementation will save time and money in the long run — and give you the automation and organization efficiencies you’ve been expecting with your ERP and CRM systems.
Where did these words of wisdom and insight come from this morning? Hastings, Nebraska.
We tip our (proverbial) hat to Hastings Utility Board members … who are recognizing the benefits of implementing ERP into their business processes, while also recognizing the benefit of patience in the process.
City continues to look for efficiencies
…The city of Hastings continues to implement recommendations included in the Novak Study, the city’s organizational study completed in 2015 by the Novak Consulting Group of Cincinnati.
Several of the recommendations included combining city functions to create more efficiencies.
Stutte said one way to achieve greater efficiencies is to purchase new enterprise resource planning software, which will help departments such as information technology, finance and human resources run more efficiently.
The administrative department capital budget includes $550,000 for new ERP software.
Still, those achieving greater efficiency is a work in progress.
“As much as we would like them overnight, we know they’re more difficult than that,” Schreiner said.
