Strategic ERP Consulting (SAP, Oracle, Other)

Logan Consulting is a full service enterprise solution implementation partner, offering services and expertise around solutions including ERP, MES, CRM, Workflow, E-Commerce, Document Management, Business Intelligence and KPI reporting.

Our firm has assumed primary vendor responsibility for implementation projects ranging from $50,000 to $5,000,000. We have also played specific roles in these kinds of engagements. We can be particularly effective as role players in situations where we know the client environment, know the client industry or have experience integrating with a particular technology.

While your organization may be committed to another consulting firm for SAP or Oracle implementation or support, our senior people can augment your internal team to fill critical communication gaps, ensure consistency with project charter and ensure the project stays on time, on target and on budget.

Logan Consulting targets the following SAP, Oracle or other ERP project roles:

  1. Project Advisor 
  2. Program Manager
  3. Project Manager
  4. Subject Matter Experts
  5. Liaison to lower cost, off shore resources

Logan Consulting’s key principles when assisting with complex ERP implementations like SAP and Oracle are as follows:

  1. Understand the business strategy, direction 
  2. Understand the project scope – what businesses, divisions, groups are in versus out of scope 
  3. Agree that business processes versus SAP or Oracle ERP functionality will drive the project 
  4. Quantify business benefit 
  5. Determine a realistic and achievable project plan and budget up front. 
  6. Manage scope

These principles are often cited but rarely followed in many SAP and Oracle implementations. Many such projects expand in scope or fail in execution resulting in significant budget overruns.
