GAP Analysis

Go Back to Services
Ensure you are getting the most out of your ERP system with a post implementation GAP Analysis.

Like any tool, ERP is only effective when it is properly used. New personnel, forgotten features and old bad habits can all affect how much you get out of your system. We want you to get the most benefit possible from your ERP. To that end, we offer a service to help you maximize your results for current and future success.

A GAP Analysis, or post implementation audit, is equally as important as any other phase of an implementation, but is often skipped or seen as unnecessary.

Second, bridge over a gap

An audit is simply a review, assessment, survey, or continual improvement program to make sure your ERP and the people running it, are operating at peak efficiency for optimum results.  An audit can be performed after training, data conversion, cut over, 2 to 3 months after go-live or anytime you want to improve system usage and procedures.

A GAP Analysis provides a formal review of the implementation and  provides a scorecard to help you determine if the business and management objectives of the company have been reached. More importantly, the GAP Analysis provides direction for where the implementation process needs to go next.

With an audit you can:

  • Ensure proper execution of key business processes
  • Measure user understanding and competency
  • Identify areas of conflict and potential improvement
  • Establish performance measurements against business goals
  • Provide direction to “Plan Forward”

As with cost, implementation time is also dependent on the same factors mentioned above. LogicData offers multiple implementation methodologies that can be adapted to your specific needs and resource availability. Considering a very basic implementation of just the core functionality of SyteLine, and employing a LogicData managed implementation approach, time to value can be achieved in as little as 3-4 months. A full implementation of all core SyteLine functionality utilizing a standard implementation approach, and assuming full client resource availability, can generally be completed in 6 to 8 months. To determine the best implementation methodology and timeline estimate for your specific situation, please contact us.

The cost of software and implementation will vary based on many factors such as user count, functionality requirements, deployment, implementation methodology, customization, data conversion, integration, and internal resources. However, for a basic configuration of SyteLine annual subscription pricing can begin at approximately $18,000 annually for a minimum of 10 users or a one-time cost of $20,000 plus annual maintenance for a minimum of 5 users in an on-premise deployment. A primarily self-directed implementation of such a basic configuration, although not recommended, can likely be achieved for approximately $30,000. LogicData recommends our standard “train-the-trainer” implementation approach which is estimated to start at roughly $65,000 for a basic implementation. For further information on pricing specific to your needs, please contact us.
