They should part of new ERP defined business process adoption, while doing the same they will understand the capabilities / limitation of the technology. Their involvement from initial stage will help to reduce implementation time as any hitches that may arise will get address in time.

        For successful and timely implementation, organization need to form a committee with taking representative from all departments, including IT and Top management. It is recommended to have two leaders of such committee, first a finance manager (as reflection of each department’s business process change can be easily seen into finance books) and other from IT (he should have knowledge of current business process of the company, i.e. he should functional sound).

If these professional are available on-site, then they can explain / provide solution / workaround for issues users are facing at initial stages as this will uphold the morale of users. Organization’s full-time IT staff will experience heavier with workload as they will not only helping end users to adjust to the change but also adapting themselves to the change.
