ERP Systems Business Analysis, Requirements Definition and System Specification

Overview

With 30 years' experience in producing functional and non-functional requirements and specifications for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems and processes, we can support you with a successful ERP selection.

This service will identify and develop preferred outcomes through understanding your business analysis needs and identify your functional requirements for what the system will do. In addition it will give a clear insight into non-functional requirements that need to support your optimal ERP solution.

 

Service Features - ERP Analysis, Requirements & Specifications

We integrate our team with yours, giving the perfect collaborative business analysis environment. Our methods enable the creation of either comprehensive or light-touch requirements based around functional and accounting analysis. This facilitates the review and documentation of organisational rules, policies, regulations and reporting, which is then paired with our expert knowledge of the ERP market, including vendors and product features.

The synergy of our working methods results in the clarification and identification of scope, corporate functions and current processes, fully determining your requirements. We review and define in accordance with APQC taxonomy and process frameworks, to include Finance, HR, Payroll, Procurement, Asset Management and more.

We respect all stakeholders and their views. Corporate reporting and requirements will be different from those users who will work with the system to assist in producing the necessary results. This is taken into consideration and enables the production of comprehensive functional and non-functional requirements and specifications. Our proficiency creates the perfect ERP system specification for your organisation, whilst adhering to time limitations and budget.
