ERP implementations tend to take a lot of resources and time. In the initial phase, expectations regarding the implementation are often unrealistic, but in the end the benefits are significant. There are studies showing that over 90% of implementation projects are overdue.
So how long does an implementation project take?
From our experience, it’s hard to generalize because no project resembles another, even if we speak of companies in the same field of activity. However, depending on the industry, we can speak of a period of 1-4 months for retail companies, of 2-6 months for the distribution companies and 2-12 months for the production domain. But leaving aside this time component, what matters ultimately is to have a successful project.
