Strategy - One of the most important things to keep in mind prior to evaluating and selecting an ERP system is to understand your organization’s strategic direction - know your expected business outcome and organizational goals. We consider your organization's business goals and objectives, and weave operational and management consulting into their strategy development approach.

Evaluation - With a software agnostic approach to the evaluation process, we’ll evaluate your ERP options - across all dimensions of strategy, process, human capital, technology, and risk management. Using a process-based approach, we’ll help you identify what is truly unique and important to your organization and build upon those differentiators.

Implementation - Our implementation methodology leverages deep technology configuration experience, project management rigor and discipline, management consulting capabilities and best practices to position organizations for implementation success. We have completed 100s of ERP implementations with leading technology solution providers, both on premise and in the cloud.

Optimization - We bring a proven methodology for optimization, discovery and delivery. We conduct an independent assessment of your ERP system to determine root cause issues (often process and people related), quantify gaps and identify enhancement opportunities, based on leading practices within your industry.

Project/Program Management - Baker Tilly provides organizations the support needed to oversee a program of initiatives related to an IFS implementation. This includes the core IFS software, as well as management of third party applications, integrations, process changes, people/job changes and overall program financial management.

Software Configuration - Many software implementation companies consider managing the integration of existing applications and new third party applications as out of scope. Not Baker Tilly. These are critically important to the success of an implementation. We focus on these early in the project and throughout the implementation.

Packaged-Enabled Re-engineering and Process Design - We consider comprehensive end-to-end process design, including process flow and mapping, policy and people changes during an implementation, as well as “out of the box” ideas on how to solve your most challenging business issues within the boundaries of the IFS software application.

Change Management - We lead organizations through proven workforce transition change methods that increase user acceptance and adoption. Changes during an IFS project may include, policy changes, process transformation, job responsibilities, organizational restructuring and new performance metrics.

Business Transformation Management

Clients we serve are continually tasked with executing large, transformation initiatives within their organizations. Companies should consider Baker Tilly if they are looking for a full complement of resources and capabilities, and an approach to their IFS Applications implementation that is transformational. Baker Tilly specializes in a package-enabled process approach resulting in market leading digital transformation. We work alongside our clients and teach them all facets of their IFS implementation, so they fully understand and can take complete ownership at the end of the engagement with confidence. With fully integrated change management and project and program management capabilities, we bring a proven methodology that combines “tried and true” implementation principles with flexible techniques for successful implementations. We focus on the business process rather than a simple functional installation; our approach to an ERP implementation is a differentiator in the market. Specific services include:

  • Packaged-Enabled Process Re-Engineering and Software Configuration: Baker Tilly emphasizes the design of the business process in conjunction with configuring core IFS software modules. We consider comprehensive end-to-end process design, including process flow and mapping, policy and people changes during an implementation, as well as “out of the box” ideas on how to solve your most challenging business issues within the boundaries of the IFS software application.
  • Organizational Change Management: We lead organizations through proven workforce transition change methods that increase user acceptance and adoption. Changes during an IFS project may include policy changes, process transformation, job responsibilities, organizational restructuring and new performance metrics.
  • Overall Program Management: Baker Tilly provides organizations the support needed to oversee a program of initiatives related to an IFS implementation. This includes the core IFS software, as well as management of third party applications, integrations, process changes, people/job changes and overall program financial management.
  • Manage Integration / Third Party Applications: Many software implementation companies consider managing the integration of existing applications and new third party applications as out of scope. Not Baker Tilly. These are critically important to the success of an implementation. We focus on these early in the project and throughout the implementation.
  • Support Inexperienced Functional Core Team: Many organizations lack the experience to support large scale system and transformation initiatives. Baker Tilly brings resources with implementation experience who work collaboratively (not independently) with your core team, guiding them throughout the implementation.
  • Support Capacity Constrained or Inexperienced IT Staff: Capacity constraints can be a challenge during an IFS implementation. We can provide additional support as needed in areas such as data migration, requirements gathering for enhancements, testing and reporting design.
  • Enterprise Risk Management: Baker Tilly guides the team in identifying and managing cross-enterprise risks, alignment of risk strategy, risk response and mitigation.
