Avoid Costly Mistakes and Maximize Your Return on Investment

Bill Gates famously said these two rules for technology and using automation—which is what ERP implementations are all about:

  • The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency.
  • The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.

Implementing ERPs costs a lot of resources—both time and money. That is why it’s essential that you go in with a roadmap for success. Simply believing the promise of reducing a 20-step process that takes 5 days into 2 steps in 15 minutes is not enough. Picking a software vendor and having the budget to pay for it isn’t enough either. Without looking at your existing processes and workflows, then deciding to move them to an ERP system is a recipe for disaster.

Our ERP Implementation Services Include

Pre-implementation Assessment

We begin with a pre-implementation assessment to ensure that your organization has the resources and support in place for success—including people, processes, and technology. Our team will assess the current environment and business requirements and determine where systems may need to be adapted to accommodate new processes. Proper planning at this stage dramatically increases your chances of a successful ERP implementation.

Implementation Strategy Development

Once the assessment is complete, we develop an implementation strategy that bridges your current situation and desired future state. Our team will establish realistic timelines and review any potential risks along with mitigation strategies for those risks in order to ensure a successful go-live. With a clear roadmap, implementation is faster, and therefore, costs less money and resources.


Project Management and Delivery

During the implementation process, our team will provide project management and guidance to ensure that tasks are completed on-time and within budget. Our experienced consultants will help you navigate any challenges that may arise along the way.

What Makes Orion’s ERP Implementation Services Different

Software Agnostic

Some people think that software is the most important thing when it comes to ERP implementations. But it’s not. What’s really important is the process. That’s what we focus on. Software is just a tool you use to automate repetitive tasks (or processes or workflows).

Our ERP Implementation Services are software agnostic—meaning we can help you regardless of the platform you choose. We are experts in process development and optimization, so no matter which software you decide to use, our team will be able to maximize its potential.

Strategic and Tactical

Failing to see the forest for the trees is a common pitfall of ERP implementations and something that we strive to avoid. Newcomers tend to solely concentrate on the charts and diagrams without fully comprehending the situation or the implications of each step.

Our ERP Implementation Services take a balanced approach that focuses on both strategic and tactical aspects. We don’t just fill in the blanks — we analyze, interpret, and make informed decisions based on our experience and expertise. With real-world hands-on experience, our consultants were part successful ERP implementations that have resulted in improved business processes, increased cost savings, and more efficient operations. By leveraging our expertise, your organization can take advantage of the best practices used on these projects to ensure success.


Since every organization is different, it’s impossible to have a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to ERP implementations. That’s why we take a flexible approach—tailoring our services to meet the needs of your business and leverage best practices that are proven to work in any situation.

Our team has experience for more than 25 years and has been leveraging this knowledge to provide our clients with the most efficient and cost-effective ERP implementation services possible. We focus on making sure that your organization gets the best return on investment while still meeting business objectives.

Are you considering investing in a new ERP or IT System?

We get it. Technology is sexy. It’s hard to resist the urge to dive in head first and start picking vendors.

It can be easy to get caught up in the features and potential of automation technology, but it’s important to keep in mind what steps should be taken prior to implementation.

If the processes aren’t set up correctly beforehand, the investment just won’t yield the desired results. Implementing an ERP system doesn’t have to be a gamble.

Don’t put the cart before the horse. 

Time and time again, we’ve seen companies come back to us after picking a “technology” vendor only to find out their company wasn’t ready. Unfortunately, this means they spent a time and money that they can’t get back yet still have a mess of an ERP system. 

Our ERP Implementation Services can help ensure that your organization avoids costly mistakes while maximizing the return on investment of your ERP system. Because we are experts on process management, Orion will help your organization get it right the first time by using process analysis and business analysis to enable an effective, and more importantly, successful IT implementation.

There Are Hundreds of Companies That Does This, Why Should I Choose Orion?

ExperienceTrack Record, and Talent are Orion’s greatest assets and why companies have selected Orion over our competitors.

There are many companies out there promising to be the best at business process documentation, but none of them have the expertise of Orion. With over 25+ years in this business, we’ve trained 50,000+ business professionals and facilitated 500+ projects. These projects have resulted in reduced cost, increased capacity and ease of doing business, and greater employee engagement and customer satisfaction. 

Business leaders want and need to be guided by the “voice of experience.” And the quality of a company’s services can only be as good as the men and women who deliver these services. That’s why Orion brings a Phenomenal Team to the table. We have no “junior” partners and no straight-out-of-school MBA graduates. Instead, Orion’s consultants hold, on average, fifteen years of professional and management experience prior to joining the Orion team and a track record of success. 

We supply the skills, coaching, and project management needed to help your team achieve its goals. We “teach your team to fish” rather than making them hungry for more services. As a result, Orion’s clients enjoy long-term success because our methodology builds self-sufficiency and resilience. We build relationships and get to know your business inside and out so that we can create a custom strategy just for you.

I was initially skeptical…how can someone come in who didn’t understand our business help us to improve our business…that was alleviated after our first session. Any skepticism in the process was taken away after our first session.
