The 9 Stages of Successful ERP Implementation

Over 40 years of serving manufacturing, we have developed a systematic approach for achieving a successful ERP Software implementation.

Stage 1: Infrastructure

The first step in a successful implementation is always the examination of what IT infrastructure you already have in place. We document what you have and make recommendations for changes and upgrades to meet requirements for your ERP system.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 2: Process Analysis

In this stage, you teach us how you do things. Every manufacturing operation is different. Global Shop Solutions ERP software is extremely flexible. It is our goal to make your existing processes more efficient. This step will help us do that.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 3: Detail Implementation/Plan Analysis

This stage of the implementation process will require strong collaboration between your implementation team and your Global Shop Solutions Consultant. This is where every step of the process is mapped out in detail and the timeline created.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 4: Training

Our software training program is one of the best and most extensive in the industry. Every one of your users will be invited to attend a week of free training to prepare them for the software launch. This is another critical step in successful implementation.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 5: System Setup

Now that we fully understand your process and your implementation plan has been fully mapped out, we are ready to begin setting up your Global Shop Solutions ERP software system. This will include preparation to receive your existing data.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 6: Data Migration

The Data Migration stage of your ERP implementation plan is extremely critical. Our experienced ERP Consultants will guide you through this process and oversee the testing process to ensure that the migration was complete and accurate.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 7: Interface/Custom

Now that we have your data in place within your new ERP system, we will begin the customization process. This stage will include any connections that need to be created between other programs or data flows currently being used by your company.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 8: Testing

We want every launch of our ERP software to go as smoothly as possible. To assure that, we spend time testing the systems, the flow of data and the accuracy of the information being generated. Our goal is to find and solve problems before the launch, rather than after.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.

Stage 9: Go Live

This is the final culmination to the entire implementation process. Our Consultants will be on site for this important final stage to oversee the launch and be available to troubleshoot and answer questions as needed. We will be celebrating your successful implementation with you.
*Illustrative example of a typical implementation. Some customers may experience shorter or longer timelines, or may elect to not to do a mock go live.
