Costs Associated with an ERP Software Implementation and How to Budget for Them

Many organizations considering a new business and financial management software solution get hung up on the ERP software pricing. There will be maintenance fees and implementation service costs (and sometimes hardware costs) in addition to the software price that should all be part of your ERP project budget.

Aside from the Ohio ERP software costs, the greatest expense in your project will most likely be the Implementation Services.  So what can you expect to receive for your money?
Implementation Services typically include:

  • Requirements Analysis/Definition of Scope*
  • Installation
  • Configuration
  • Integration
  • Data Migration or Conversion
  • Customization
  • Reporting
  • Testing
  • Training
  • Documentation
  • Project Management

*While many partners will charge for this service or roll the costs into the total cost of the project, Socius does NOT charge for these services.

To help you plan for these ERP project costs, the ERP Papers Panel (a group of ERP experts nationwide focused on educating ERP buyers through the entire software selection process) has published a whitepaper:  Beyond Software: How to Budget the Cost of ERP Implementation Services
