ERP Implementation is one of the most important steps of any organization. With an ERP correctly set up in the school environment, all the different aspects such as results, attendance, library, etc. can be handled without any difficulties.
The current generation ERP solution is changing rapidly and so does the education sector. The education sector is now improving and many schools are moving through rapid changes. To make sure that the ERP is implemented in the correct way, we will go through 5 Good practices for successful ERP implementation. The practices are necessary for the correct implementation of Education ERP management such as OpenEduCat.
OpenEduCat is an open source Education ERP system developed by TechReceptives.
So, what are those practices that you should follow? Let’s start the countdown.
Do you really need the ERP solution for your school?
This is one of the most important questions that should be encountered head on. The main motive of the answering this question is to ask the authorities whether the actual need for the ERP solution is justified or not. To make sure that the decision is made right, a small team of teachers and non-teaching staff should hold a meeting and decide all the benefits of the ERP solution for the school.
What are the requirements?
With the decision of implementing an ERP done, the next step is to clearly write down all the requirements of your ERP solution for school or college. Not all ERP solutions are made equal and that’s why require little too extreme customization. To minimize customization and other sorts of problems, it is always better to write down the requirements and be crystal clear about them.
Creating Database and Storing Data
The next vital practice is to realize that not all the data can be imported into the new system. Recovering 100% of the data can be quite agonizing and some of the old data holds no value to the institute. That’s why school or college should create a CSV/spreadsheet file and write down all the data and segments that need to be imported into the new system.
Train the Workforce
Although ERP solution is not rocket science, but incorporating it into the work-flow of the teachers and other staff is an important step in the success of ERP implementation. There can be end users of different skill level, which in turn warrants the training of the workforce.
Also, using documents and creating value for the end user should be the top priority job in the hands of the organization.
Making Everything Work
With all the nitty gritty work done. It is high time to celebrate the live version of the ERP. Also, it is also not a bad idea to test all the major process of the ERP system before everything is finalized for the launch. This can protect your school or college from any embarrassment during the launch session.
