ERP Consulting

Plante Moran Logo

ERP is more than technology. We’ll make sure it’s working for you.

Your enterprise resource planning system should generate efficiencies, gather meaningful data, drive informed decisions for the future, and in many cases, enable growth. Outdated or underperforming ERP systems can hinder performance and cost you in the long run. Our ERP experts will help you save time and improve processes. 

We’ve helped hundreds of organizations across the United States and internationally assess, select, and implement ERP solutions in a range of industries, including government, education, healthcare, numerous sectors of the manufacturing industry, and much more. 

We’ve managed ERP implementations of all sizes and budgets and will provide honest, unbiased evaluation and guidance. Our experience with vendor contract negotiations will also ensure you receive the best terms and cost savings possible. Let us handle the details so you can focus on the big picture.

ERP Consulting Thought Leadership

  • IT: Can your IT infrastructure support you through COVID-19 disruption?

    A weak IT infrastructure can hinder your COVID-19 crisis navigation. Your technology should be robust enough to support remote work when needed, smart enough to support your decision-making, and secure enough to protect you from cybercrime. You’ll also need the right team to keep your technology running smoothly. Take our assessment to evaluate your IT strength and find out where you need to devote additional resources.

  • Customer relationships and demand: Can you still meet client needs?

    A critical factor in successful crisis navigation is minimal disruption to your customer service. Are you still meeting your commitments? If so, how long can you keep that going? Does your staff know how to answer COVID-19-related business questions? How are you positioned compared to the competition? Take the assessment to gauge your ability to continue successful operations amid the disruption.

Have you taken the right steps to keep on-site operations as safe as possible? Take the assessment to patch any holes in your preparedness plans.

Independent, candid advice

As independent, unbiased advisors, we’re here to guide you through all technology life cycles. Our team will take the time to understand your organization — how you work, and how your people interact with technology on a daily basis. We won’t tell you what to buy and move on. We’ll provide the objective support and guidance you need throughout the entire process.

Doug Hockenbrocht, information technology consulting partner, says it best: “We may be IT consultants by title, but we encourage clients to view us as operational improvement consultants leveraging enabling technologies. We’re not just helping the organizations; we’re also helping the individuals who have stressful jobs with long hours because of inefficient tools and systems. When those people hug our team members or send handwritten notes thanking us for improving their jobs, that’s very satisfying.”

Our clients say

After going through the acquisition process, we realized there was a great need for an ERP assessment, selection, implementation, and project management. Our interaction with the Plante Moran team, summarized in one word, would be nothing short of professional. They deliver every time, always meet or exceed expectations, and are always available to provide resources – we have been absolutely thrilled. They had no problem interacting at any level of the company, and were able to provide a calm and respective approach that kept the project moving in the right direction. We chose Plante Moran for their broad set of skills and expertise, and their ability to complement our staff who were personally invested in all aspects of the project. Plante Moran was the perfect fit for us because they operate as a large firm with a small firm attitude.
