Getting board level buy-in and support for a new ERP implementation can be a real challenge. Senior Directors don’t always understand the pain that front line staff have to go through when dealing with outdated, legacy systems. It’s not them having to do the manual intervention or double checking data from different systems.

And all too often, the operational and organisational inefficiency becomes overwhelming before the decision to make a change is made.
