Improving the Experience with ERP and Other Enterprise Software

All manufacturers and distributors utilize some form of enterprise software, most commonly ERP as the primary software for transaction processing and tactical and operational decision making. At the same time, nearly half report that they're dissatisfied with their ERP software experience. This seminar introduces a framework for companies to use in increasing their adoption and satisfaction level with their existing ERP and other enterprise software assets. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the causes of gaps between expectations and experience for enterprise software
  • Tools and techniques to reduce software fit gaps (features needed, but do not exist)
  • Tools and techniques to reduce software utilization gaps (capabilities exist but aren't being fully or appropriately utilized)
  • Methods to manage the change from current state to a desired, improved future state
