ERP projects represent some of the largest investments that organisation’s undertake both in terms of direct financial spend and ongoing resource commitments. Successful SAP implementations can significantly reduce costs through efficiencies and represent an opportunity to streamline and standardise processes globally.

Measuring return on investment is a complex process. Establishing a common set of tangible measures of system usage is the starting point. Developing a sustainable mechanism to continually access system usage and drive improved performance is the key to increasing return on investment and user satisfaction.

Common issues

  • Lower than expected ROI from your investments in SAP
  • Implementation not consistent across geographies/markets
  • Processes not standardised with the SAP system
  • Inefficient and costly operations of business processes and controls
  • Inadequate/unreliable information for management reporting
  • Dependency on manual reconciliations
  • High cost of transitioning staff – consistent retaining required
  • Increased usage of spreadsheets

Our solution

Our focus is on developing bespoke measures to identify how effectively you are using SAP. The initial stages of the SAP utilisation and effectiveness review involve working with the business to establish key areas for assessment.

KPI’s will develop in selected areas providing the mechanism to consistently measure SAP usage over time. The measurement of these parameters can be automated to provide a sustainable and cost effective assessment mechanism.

Working with these KPI’s to identify areas for improvement, remediation plans can be developed to maximise the use of SAP. Continuous monitoring of results over time allows continued improvement and ongoing optimisation of SAP usage.
