A successful ERP Journey Begins with a Dedicated Partner

We make ERP simple.  ERPs are complex systems.  They often come with thousands of pages of documentation, including user guides, implementation guides, training guides, etc.  The setup and configuration of an ERP can be quite daunting because ERPs are designed to help run and manage many different types of businesses.  Our staff are trained professionals that are certified by the ERP vendor and have years of experience implementing ERPs with many different types of companies.  When ERPs are setup and configured properly, they help improve business efficiency, give you real-time access to data to make business decisions, and help automate processes that improve operational efficiency.  It is critical that your ERP is setup, configured, and mapped correctly to your business processes and requirements.



ERPs are a necessity for all businesses.  Its not a matter of if you need an ERP, but when you are going to buy one.  Any business that wishes to scale and grow must have a strong technology stack supporting its business operations.  To help manage this cost, we’ve created our Growth and Enablement Program, which significantly reduces the cost of entry into an ERP.



We believe that ERP implementation should be done by professionals that are certified and trained on the ERP and have successfully implemented many ERPs for various types of companies.  Our Professional Services team understands business processes, is familiar with industry-standard best practices, and know all the tricks and secrets that speed up the implementation process.  They know which questions to ask to truly understand how your business operates, and can turn that information into a design that optimizes the configuration of your ERP to meet your business needs.  Using our proven 4D Methodology, ERP implementations launch successfully in 3-6 months.  We provide you with a transparent fixed cost that helps ensure a successful ERP implementation.  To implement ERP successfully, expect to pay 1-4 times your first year’s license cost in professional services.  This amount varies depending on the level of complexity of your business and the number of licensed modules purchased.

Beware of the “shared” or “assisted” ERP implementation approaches – these implementation strategies may appear to reduce the implementation cost, but instead they shift the cost and effort onto your employees.  In addition to your employees having to do their day job, these strategies require your employees to read through hundreds of pages of documentation and take training classes on how to use and implement the ERP.  Even if you have a dedicated team to do this additional work, they are still at a significant disadvantage because they must learn the new ERP.  Most companies don’t have the staff and don’t have the time to do this additional work.  This results in ERP implementations that take much longer than expected (dragging on from 6 months to a year or longer), and ends up costing your business more in the long run.



Success with ERP is a journey, not a destination.  Often, you don’t realize what you truly want or need until after you start using a system.  Your ERP will need to change with you over time as your business evolves.  You will think of new ideas once you start using the system to make things even more efficient and will want to do more with your ERP.  At EIS, we include Value-Added Servicespost-implementation that not only include premier support, but other services that keep your ERP running optimally and are designed to help your company grow and evolve with your ERP over time.
