ERP Consulting

Our Expertise
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 Outdated or underperforming ERP systems can hinder performance and cost you in the long run.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.

Many of our consultants worked in the field before joining our team, so we know what challenges your organization faces. From the manufacturing floor to the school halls, our firsthand industry experience allows us to provide practical, informed advice. You’ll benefit from best practices learned across all industries — not just your specific field.

And we don’t stop with the ERP system. We mitigate risk and make business processes more effective and efficient from cybersecurity concerns to costing, strategy, financial risk, and data analytics.

Bridge the gap between your people, processes, and ERP technology

We can guide you through any stage of the ERP life cycle, whether you’re looking at ERP for the first time, want more value from your current system, or need to replace it with a new system. 

Reach out today to find out how we can help you with: 

Assessment
In response to changing client needs, ERP vendors offer significant upgrades, acquire new solutions, retire existing ones, change licensing and maintenance fees, and introduce new deployment and support models. With so many variables, it’s hard to evaluate the situation, but we’ll help you filter through the noise and perform due diligence. With your unique needs and objectives in mind, we’ll help determine which improvement alternatives will satisfy your short and long-term needs.
Implementation
We’ll make sure you and your employees get the most out of your ERP investment. From project management and change management to technical training, we’ll uncover the nuances of your operations and your specific functional requirements to mitigate risk. Our knowledge of market trends, business issues, and best practices will result in a smooth and seamless path to achieving your goals. This also includes project recovery for those enterprise projects that have might have stalled and need to get back on track.
Selection
Once you decide to invest in a new ERP system, you need to quickly identify requirements, wade through a list of credible ERP solutions, and manage an effective evaluation process. We’ll help you develop an RFP and can do the heavy-lifting by sifting through the vendors vying for your business. We’ll work closely with you to ensure you have the most strategic and credible ERP solutions to evaluate. Our independence and experience allows us to closely review and negotiate contracts to reduce your cost and risk.



Client Experience
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.
