Could ERP Efficiencies Be Hiding In Plain Sight?

June 26th, 2019

Many organizations implementing ERP drive hard to go-live, but once the system is up and running they fail to optimize for the changing business environment. Where they could utilize efficiencies within the system, they are ultimately leaving money on the table.

Some common hidden efficiencies that are missed include:

  • Automated bank transactions warehouse
  • Automated inter-company sales
  • Budget checking on PO’s (tightly controlled encumbrance process for grant tracking)
  • Landed cost linked to inventory through manufacturing to get true costing
  • Automated cash receipts / lockbox processing

In addition to the above, consider if your organization is making the most of the functionality available in the modules you own. For example, in the Purchasing module, are Approvals being utilized fully and successfully? Are Purchase Requisitions and/or Purchase Quotes used most efficiently?




In an earlier email message 8 Differences Between a Common ERP Approach and an Optimized One we discussed the example of a user interface that hadn’t changed since the initial implementation. As a result, it looked “old school” and didn’t offer the experience users were used to with other systems. By simply implementing other available versions of screens for ease-of-use, they could have easily changed processing options or data selections making data entry faster and easier, thereby increasing productivity.

By uncovering efficiencies already available in your ERP system your organization could be just steps away from realizing company-wide benefits that optimization brings and avoid leaving money on the table.

MSS can help uncover and implement new hidden efficiencies by:

  • Meeting with your JDE end users to identify usage and/or training gaps
  • Assessing your JDE environment with a focus on improving efficiencies via setup/ technology/reporting
  • Providing JDE documentation comparing your current system to the latest releases of the application
