ERP Adoption and Implementation Lifecycle Phases and Stages

Implementing and adopting to a new ERP system is not as easy as it may seem. It requires professional
supervision and guidance at different stages. Here are six important phases you can face in new ERP
implementation process.

1. Initiation Phase
2. Adoption Phase
3. Implementation phase
4. Shakedown phase
5. Evaluation phase
6. Optimization phase

Sometimes, these processes may overlap and sometimes there may be moving back and forth between
the phases. Our team at Gluon ERP has several years of experience in ERP implementation. Coupled with
our experience in financial software implementation, we have outlined the six phases and explained
how they help our customers with adapting to the new ERP. Let us take an in-depth look. We hope this
will serve as a useful resource for your organization when exploring the options.

New ERP System Implementation Plan Explained

1. Initiation Phase

This is the first phase of implementing the ERP system. It begins at the sales process and continues
post-sales. At this stage, it will be important to form the project team and develop the necessary
documents. There will be initial meetings to sort out the existing issues and find solutions. Constructing
a project plan is important in this phase. This will guide everyone through the rest of the phases.

2. Adoption Phase

At this stage, it is more about what the new ERP system would look like and how the organization can
use it. During this phase, the project design and implementation team will work together to configure
the new ERP system. They will define roles and document standard procedures.

3. Implementation Phase

The purpose of this stage is to setup the system to go live. It includes completing customizations,
importing data, planning training the users, and developing training systems. An important rule that
applies here is to first solve the problems and then compose the code.

4. Shakedown Phase

This stage will overlap with the development phase often, because whenever there is the need to
customize the ERP system, the development team will have to look at the project.

5. Evaluation Phase

The project development and implementation team has to assess the ERP system and make the final
decision. They can tell whether the system can go live or not. Once it is all okay, they will start training
the employees to start using the new ERP software and stop using the old system.

6. Optimization Phase

When the ERP system is live, there will be the need to make ongoing changes and adjustments to
configure the system as it evolves.

At Gluon ERP , we apply all these phases to make sure your ERP system implementation and ongoing
ERP support helps your business grow. Contact us for more information.
