Posted on: January 25, 2016 | By: Craig Thompson | Microsoft Dynamics GP
So you've decided to take the plunge and update your ERP software, good for you! But once all the software is upgraded and you're left with a shiny new system, what's next? Sure new ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics GP or Acumatica Cloud ERP come with manuals, but often times these aren't personal and can be very limiting in terms of utilizing all of the benefits a software has to offer. In order to really get the most bang for your buck, it's crucial to start training your employees before your system goes live to work out any kinks in the system. Any down time can be detrimental, so when it comes to ERP training don't settle for anything less than the best.
Pump Up Your Employees: Often times when a new system is introduced, employees will see it as more of a hassle than anything else. Throwing something new out there without any guidance can cause a lot of complications in their day to day operations. However bringing in a specialized Microsoft Dynamics or Acumatica Training team can give a sense of understanding to your team. With specialized ERP technology assessments, experts will be able to help you figure out what works best for your company and can train your team on all the ways their job is going to get easier!
One Size Doesn't fit all: Often, when a consultant comes into a business, they're set with the mindset that when it comes to training there is one method that will work every time. But with so many different industries and learning styles, finding a program that works with your company's unique set of needs is crucial to get the most of your new software. It's important to find a partner willing to customize your new software to fit your company and build off of it with a variety of different training techniques to ensure that no one feels left behind or out of touch.
The Price is Right: Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to break the bank to bring in a training team in to do your dirty work. At first glance, skimping on customized Dynamics or Acumatica training could seem like a great way to save your company money, but in the long run it'll cost your company big time. The money you shave off by resorting to only user guides for information will be outweighed by the very real possibility that you could be missing key concepts that could promote growth. With a knowledgeable trainer, you get all of the headache and confusion out of the way immediately to let you get down to what you do best, better.
