Microsoft Dynamics ERP Rescue and Implementation Partner - How to Get Your Project on the Right Track


Is your ERP implementation project posing a risk? It can be frustrating when you’ve invested significant time and effort into each aspect of your organization, assessing technology, and choosing a software vendor such as a Microsoft Dynamics ERP partner, and having high expectations for the project, only to feel like it may not meet your desired outcomes. There can be various reasons why your Microsoft Dynamics ERP implementation project may encounter challenges, such as incomplete requirement gathering, inadequate alignment with business processes, increasing budget and scope, delayed deliveries, and overall dissatisfaction.

An ERP rescue project typically refers to a situation where a new Microsoft Dynamics implementation partner or team takes over an ongoing implementation project that was previously being handled by another partner. The reasons for initiating a rescue project can vary, but they often arise when the initial implementation project is facing significant challenges or difficulties.

Before we talk about rescue, it’s essential to talk about our Quality Assurance and Advisory services for assessing the current ERP implementation.

Why are Microsoft Dynamics ERP Quality Assurance and Advisory Services so Important?

As Microsoft Dynamics ERP implementation systems are complex and touch multiple aspects of a company’s operations, ensuring their quality and reliability is essential. This is where ERP quality assurance partners and ERP advisory implementation services become important. Here are a few reasons why:

Quality Assurance & Conducting Independent Program Reviews Matter

Quality Assurance and Independent Program Review is paramount for any large-scale, complex, and successful Microsoft Dynamics ERP implementation. The objectives of Quality Assurance of ERP implementation partners are to identify defects or anomalies, recommend corrective measures and ensure the intended business value delivery. Also, it gets the program back on track and helps in saving time & budget.

Business Processes aren’t Properly Demonstrated after Dynamics ERP Configuration

When your business processes aren’t demonstrated after ERP configuration or customization, it can lead to confusion, inefficiencies, and challenges in using the system effectively. Here are some steps to address this issue:

Identify the Gaps: Assess the gap between the configured or customized ERP system and the actual business processes. Identify areas where the system does not align with the desired workflows or where there are missing functionalities.

Engage Stakeholders: Involve key stakeholders, including process owners, end-users, and IT personnel, in the discussion. Understand their requirements, challenges, and expectations regarding the ERP implementation system.

Review Documentation: Evaluate the existing documentation, such as process flowcharts, user manuals, and system configurations. Ensure that the documentation accurately reflects the configured Microsoft Dynamics ERP system.

Address Configuration or Customization Issues: Bring in ERP experts providers for the modules or processes and identify the issues and plan for corrective action. This may involve reconfiguring the system, customizing certain functionalities, etc.

Users aren’t Clear on the Application Processes

Microsoft Dynamics  ERP solutions are designed to streamline and integrate various business functions within an organization, including finance, human resources, supply chain management, manufacturing, and more. The specific processes may vary depending on the organization’s requirements. However, if the users are unclear about ERP application processes, there are several ways to address this issue and enhance their understanding with the help of Microsoft Dynamics solution providers and Microsoft Dynamics ERP implementation partners:

Address the Change Management Issues: Some of the processes may have to be handled in a different way and the users have to be trained or their roles and responsibilities need to be reviewed or aligned to the new processes or system processes.

Documentation and User Guides: Provide comprehensive documentation and user guides that explain the various processes involved in the ERP implementation system. This documentation should be easily accessible and understandable, offering step-by-step instructions and explanations for each process. It can include screenshots, diagrams, and examples to illustrate the steps effectively.

Training Programs: Conduct training sessions or workshops to educate users about the ERP implementation processes. These sessions can be conducted by our experienced Microsoft Dynamics ERP professionals who are well-versed in the system’s functionalities and processes. Hands-on training with real-life scenarios can help users grasp the processes more effectively.

Continuous Communication: Maintain open lines of communication with users and encourage them to provide feedback on their understanding of the ERP implementation processes. Regularly gather feedback to identify areas where users are struggling or require further clarification.

UAT Results aren’t Satisfactory in ERP Implementation

If the User Acceptance Testing (UAT) results for an ERP implementation are not satisfactory, it indicates that there may be issues or discrepancies between the expected functionality and the actual performance of the system. Here are some steps you can take to address this situation:

Analyze the Test Results: Review the UAT results in detail to identify specific areas where the ERP implementation system did not meet the desired expectations. Determine the nature and severity of the issues encountered during testing.

Debug and Fix Issues: Work closely with the Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution provider or implementation partner to address the identified issues. Collaborate with technical experts, consultants, or support personnel to investigate and resolve problems. This may involve code fixes, configuration adjustments, or data corrections.

Retest and Validate: Once the identified issues have been addressed, conduct retesting to verify that the fixes have resolved the problems effectively. Test the impacted functionalities and associated workflows to ensure they are now functioning as expected.

Users aren’t Confident Using the ERP System

If users lack confidence in using the ERP system, it’s important to address their concerns and provide them with the necessary support and training. Here are some steps you can take to help build user confidence:

User Training: Conduct comprehensive training sessions for users to familiarize them with the Microsoft Dynamics ERP implementation system’s functionality, features, and processes. Customize the training to meet the specific needs of different user roles within the organization. Provide hands-on exercises and real-world examples to ensure users gain practical experience in using the system.

Involve technically sound people: Engage technically competent employees to provide extensive training and mentorship to others who might be struggling with the ERP implementation system. It can be an effective approach to building confidence and improving user proficiency.

User Feedback and Improvement: Encourage users to provide feedback on their experience with the ERP implementation system. Actively listen to their suggestions and concerns. Use their feedback to drive continuous improvement, address pain points, and enhance the user experience.

Customer Lost Hope on the Microsoft Dynamics ERP Implementation

If a customer has lost hope in the Microsoft Dynamics ERP implementation, it’s crucial to address their concerns and work towards rebuilding their confidence. Here is how:
