ERP systems have provided a foundation for improved management of critical company resources. Although many companies have implemented an ERP system, few have reaped the full potential of their ERP investments. This is due to a number of factors, including incomplete implementations, lack of focus on process redesign, inadequate post-implementation review/support, and poor data management. Organizations must focus on continuous improvement to reap the benefits of ERP systems, including improved operational efficiency and competitive advantage. For those companies still planning on implementing an ERP system, there are many lessons to learn from the shortcomings of the early implementers.
