Transitioning to a new, integrated ERP system is exciting and challenging for any organization – especially a complex school system. Don’t prepare for this move alone.
Moving to a modern HR, Financials and Payroll system offers your district the opportunity to increase effectiveness by improving business processes and generating more accurate and actionable data. However, you will only realize these benefits if your teachers, principals, staff and community use this new system to do their jobs better.
It’s true. As you move your ERP applications to the Cloud you should spend less time doing some things like installing hardware and software and building and maintaining customizations. However, you will need to spend more time on other things like leading change management to ensure end user adoption, standardizing your processes, managing service requests, and testing updates. And, you will still need to configure and test software, validate and clean data and train everyone who will use the new system. Do you have the staff to do this alone? Here are five things Worldgate recommends school districts do now to get ready for your move to a modern, SaaS system:
