Find the right ERP consultants for your company

An ERP consultant is such an integral part of your ERP implementation that you cannot afford to make a mistake when choosing one. In a TechRepublic article, Cathleen McCarty provides tips on how to tell if the match works—or is problematic.

Enterprise resource planning systems are notoriously expensive. And if you’re one of the unlucky multitudes who does not have ERP expertise within your company, you’re also going to have to buy help. Finding the wrong consultant can cost you as much as the entire ERP project. How do you avoid this problem? Cathleen McCarty offers some helpful tips in her article “How to choose an ERP implementation consultant.”

In your search for the perfect ERP fit, McCarty says that you should stick to specific guidelines that are determined by the “cultural fit” of your company. The cultural fit refers to how your company operates. Before the search for a consultant begins, you should know what type of personality will fit well with your team. You should also know what type of background you’re looking for in the ideal job candidate.

The article also examines the differences in makeup between the search committee, which should be smaller and narrowly defined, and the selection committee, which should be a much broader group.

Once you have a candidate in mind, McCarty explains why you should go beyond just checking the candidate’s references by doing your own research.
