Starting a Journey to ERP? Get Your Guide to Business Process Improvement
Most manufacturing and distribution companies have a goal of business process improvement. That’s why many companies partner with Ultra, as they require modern technology to support that improvement.
Each organization’s “current state” is different.
Some companies already have the necessary technology in place, but it isn’t in use effectively.
Other organizations have undergone a recent merger or acquisition and look to centralize on one system.
Still others have experienced a failed implementation project, and seek Ultra’s team to recover from an ERP failure.
With a portfolio of over 400 engagements, we’ve seen many examples of projects. Two recent engagements include:
- An industrial supplier that sought out Ultra’s expertise in developing a business process improvement plan and the eventual selection of software to support that plan. This software in consideration was ERP and Warehouse Management – software that supports the company’s business performance objectives. The technology platform chosen could be SAAS, on-premise or a combination of both. It ultimately answers the question “what technologies address both current and long-term objectives, supporting our company’s growth and eventual business process transformation”.
- A manufacturer that already had modern technology in place and sought our expertise in designing, driving and implementing a future state of business process improvement.
In each case, and many other’s we’ve led as an independent ERP consulting firm, the organization’s transformation plan included a timeline of policies, procedures, technology and processes to move the organization from a current state (“as is”) to a future state (“to be”) of improved efficiencies, productivity and continuous improvement.
