Five Tips for Getting Your Microsoft Dynamics GP Implementation Right – The First Time
We have all heard horror stories of Microsoft Dynamics GP implementations gone wrong (wrong also includes blowing the go-live dates). Most implementation failures can be narrowed down to wrong choice of partner, poorly defined scope, lack of project management, partner not familiar with business processes and, in a few cases, unforeseen external factors.
I know of a large company that has invested more than $3.5 million on a GP implementation of financials, distribution, integration to a warehouse management system, and ten third-party products. Five years into the run and four partners later, the company has barely gotten beyond the implementation of the financial modules.
