How to Take Your Business Operations from Chaos to Connected

by | Updated April 20, 2020 | Business & Leadership, General Technology

Connected Operations

What do you call it when you have 30 applications for 30 business processes? At most, you might call it a mess. At least? You certainly have some duplication and inefficiency. While most businesses don’t typically have 30 disconnected operations, it can happen. Even 10 disconnected operations in the business can create confusion and wastefulness. The right Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution can eliminate the waste and confusion of disparate systems.

Transform your operations, transform your business

Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the Common Data Service means that you can integrate multiple systems into a common structure, bringing disparate operations seamlessly into one view, eliminating inefficiencies, and increasing ROI.

Is YOUR current business operations platform helping your business grow, compete, innovate, and prepare for future technology developments?

In our experience, getting operations from chaos to connected takes some analysis by us and informed decisions by our clients. As seasoned ERP consultants, our job is to lay out your options and trade-offs. We are looking at what really matters in your business, and at finding ways to help you create efficiency and to leverage as much as you can out of the box, so you don’t spend money on unnecessary elements. We present your options in the most obvious and actionable way possible, so your trade-offs are clear.

You will find that your options tend to fall into three categories:

1. Out of the box

The least expensive option is always to pull an operation out of the chaos and into the existing functionality in the ERP software you’ve already invested in. While this might not deliver exactly all the bells and whistles your employees are accustomed to, if it helps you compete and gets the job done then it is probably worth taking a close look at what is possible in this category.

2. Customized

This option customizes your ERP implementation to do more than it would straight out of the box, and while it increases costs, it also tailors processes for your more critical business needs.

3. Point Application + Integration

For some operations, only the best of breed point application will do. These are operations that are highly specialized and tie in with highly specialized processes in your business.

Connection from chaos

A successful ERP implementation connects formerly disconnected operations, provides the right information to users quickly and efficiently, positions your business for future growth, and delivers a healthy and demonstrable return on investment.
