Key Strategies to Track and Evaluate Progress Following the Implementation of an ERP

In the evolving world of construction management, where projects are complex, budgets are tight, and timelines are critical, selecting the right Construction Management Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system can be a game-changer. But that’s just the first step.

Once you've implemented a new ERP into your technology stack, tracking progress effectively and measuring progress become crucial. This ensures the anticipated benefits are being realized, potential risks are identified, and any issues are promptly addressed. Construction firms can adopt the following strategies:


Compare your firm's financial and operational performance before and after ERP implementation. This quantitative approach helps measure the ERP's impact and identify trends over time, such as inventory turnover or improved supply chain efficiency.

Feedback from Users

Solicit feedback from end-users, including project managers and team members, about their experience with the new system. This can provide valuable insights into areas that might require further optimization or additional training, ultimately improving customer satisfaction and ensuring everyone is on the same page.

Adapting to Changes

Stay informed about updates and upgrades provided by the ERP vendor. Evaluate whether adopting new features can further enhance performance in areas such as project tracking or inventory management. This ensures that you're leveraging the latest functionalities to optimize business processes.

Engaging with Stakeholders

Regularly communicate the progress of the ERP implementation to relevant stakeholders. This transparency fosters understanding of the ERP's impact on achieving business goals and maintaining alignment across the team.

Regular Performance Reviews

Schedule periodic reviews of your ERP's performance to look at KPI's, identify areas of improvement and make any necessary adjustments.

By implementing these proven strategies, you can ensure a smoother transition to your new ERP, identify and address potential roadblocks early on, and ultimately achieve success through data-driven decisions.
