Fix and Found

What happens when you find an operational deficiency, you investigate options, implement changes and then find that your challenges were bigger than you originally thought?


One day long ago your organization struggled with manual processing and systems that did not work well together.  A hodge-podge of separate systems, inefficiencies, duplication of effort and accuracy issues. 


Your struggles led you on a path of discovery.  You took a serious look at yourself to see what your business does to generate revenue, how it operates and what changes could be made to drive new efficiencies and profitability.  After a period of elimination you made a selection of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution to address and fix the challenges.


The changes worked their magic and after all the pain of transition everything seemed to work well and then your company started to grow even more.  The old systems were, in fact, a constraint on growth.


What you found was that your focus was on the greatest pain in your operations.  Good place to start.  Fix the pain and move on.  What happens when your remove one bottleneck? 




Great, but what about your ERP solution?  What about the next bottleneck?


Was the solution you took so much time to choose able to address this new growth?  It was designed to address your biggest challenge.  Your business grew and along the way you discovered that your new solution allowed you to fix and address other challenges that you did not realize were actually impacting business. 


Your business grew even more.


Really great, but what about your ERP solution?
