You may be on an old SAP ERP version, challenged by rising technical complexity and customisation within your solution, or simply struggling to navigate through marketing rhetoric to decide which path to follow in order to move forward.
Perhaps the most significant challenge you are facing is the opportunity cost associated with not being able to adopt new innovations essential for competitive advantage, or keeping up with the pace of your industry. Furthermore, the inability to innovate and progress without significant disruption to the business often results in decision paralysis.

Wondering how to determine SAP system stability? There’s a simple three-step equation you can use to find out:
SAP is designed to help your business achieve a higher level of efficiency and productivity. Once your initial SAP implementation is complete, monitoring, maintaining and improving the efficiency of your SAP system should be the primary goal of your SAP support team. That means keeping a close eye on the stability of your system.

One of the biggest mistakes most organizations make when it comes to SAP support is to expect a standard distribution curve with just one spike when you first go live or put a significant piece of new functionality live.
They assume they can simply manage those increased support requirements and then stabilize from there. That assumption usually results in the removal of post-go-live SAP support at the exact moment when it is most essential.
Ensuring the long-term success of your SAP implementation requires careful planning, preparation and support. From the moment you decide to integrate SAP into your business to long after your new business management software system goes live, having a team of expert SAP consultants by your side, is the key to sustaining success and getting back to business as usual.

However, one of the problems when using your own team for production support is the amount of time required to resolve issues means less time spent on completing projects that enhance productivity, efficiency and organizational improvement as a whole. If you take a closer look, you will most likely find your staff spending more time on production support than you think.

G3G has developed an impressive track record delivering SAP ERP to mid-market organizations. Midmarket organizations share the same challenges that larger enterprise face, but cannot afford the large price tag often associated with ERP implementations. Chris Gunter, CEO at G3G explains, “Implementing an ERP solution has often been likened to open heart and lung surgery. Often vital for survival, but never something you go into lightly. And you certainly want to know you are in safe hands.” By adopting a rapid deployment approach with a pre-configured template, G3G has made it possible to reduce time, cost and risk whilst bringing consistently high quality outcomes.
“We get our customer ‘off the operating table’ within 14-16 weeks, helping them avoid the typical pitfalls of open heart surgery, and start to realize the benefits sooner.” He went on to explain their 4 key objectives. They want to deliver ERP faster because mid-market companies cannot remain in project mode too long and need to start reaping the rewards sooner. Customer’s internal teams need to get back to their day jobs. Since a major part of the implementation cost is due to the consulting services, reducing the implementation time frame automatically leads to a cost reduction. Reduction in timeframe has been achieved through the use of their pre-configured rapid deployment template. This template approach also improves predictability and stability because the solution has been tried and tested in multiple implementations. This leads to lower risk and increased quality.

It is very clear when looking through the history of G3G that innovation has always been at the forefront of their business strategy, but how has this led to the success they are today? Over the last twelve months they have enjoyed triple digit growth, which has followed many years of double-digit growth. How could this be possible through the recessionary period?
One noticeable factor has been the way they have linked constant innovation to their customers’ needs. G3G has made significant breakthroughs that are helping mid-enterprise organisations realise efficiencies and savings from their investment in technology.
Mid-size organisations share many of the complexities that large organisations have, but with the added challenge of vastly smaller budgets and quicker ROI demands. Jonathan Simpson, Group Finance Director at Semperian PPP Investment Partners, explained that G3G has helped the mid-enterprise by recognising they don't have the budget and resources that large organisations have at their disposal. G3G has created a platform that delivers standard industry accepted best practice processes out of the box. By following this approach, Customers are able to implement SAP Business Suite within 14-16 weeks at a significantly lower cost than historically possible.
Richard Glasspool, Director at OGN Group explained, “The resulting business benefits are considerable, including effective integration, full traceability and visibility combined with efficient use of materials thus delivering major process and cost efficiencies.”
