Where will you work
Here are some of the duties and responsibilities of the ERP consultant:
- System analysis: For organizations with no ERP system already in place, the consultant will analyse their business processes and gather the requirements to implement the software, and make sure it works in harmony with the business. For organizations that already have an ERP system in place, the first job of an ERP consultant will be to examine the current system to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses before they can develop ways to optimize it.
- User training and support: After the software and the solution implementation, the consultant needs to educate the company members on how to utilize it in its most effective way. Without this critical skill, your team members can be left unaware of how to use the software and, consequently, make your business lose time and money.
- Technical support and upgrades: The ERP consultant will be responsible for performing day-to-day maintenance on the ERP system and installing new upgrades and testing for bugs. System configuration and data migration will be part of the responsibilities as well.
- Project development and presentation: The ERP consultant will coordinate with other company branches to ensure that any upgrades of the system satisfy their needs. They will then prepare a demonstration to make sure the relevant company management understands what has been done.
