ERP Systems and Technology

We Require Requirements

Page from GFR

Yes, ERP projects are difficult, but also not impossible. In many cases, difficulty doesn’t come from the technology, but rather the organizational changes necessary to achieve the project goals that often go along with implementation of best practices, streamlined processes, or modern functions. ERP projects include many complex components that involve a variety of stakeholders, all of whom must come together if the project is to succeed. Gaining support and alignment requires a clear project vision, achievable goals, and a well-defined scope. Establishing where the finish line should be is and making that known to everyone involved makes the project much easier to manage and much more likely to achieve success.

For the past 25 years, GFOA has provided resources and services to help organizations navigate the path to an ERP system replacement, and one component that is essential to our approach is the development of functional requirements.
