With the advent of a new financial year, employees and resources engage better to implement a project which is quite pivotal.
At the start of the financial year, it’s much easier to predict and plan to invest in a technology. This is because trying to cramp in extra expense in already freezed budget mid season isn’t viable.
A fresh financial year is a time to rethink strategy, sales target and growth trajectory. Workers are more flexible to changes now and less defiant to any alteration.
New transactions are easy on accounting since the previous year’s books are settled and closed. Mid way into a year, it’s difficult to implement a new ERP system because people are already facing the brunt of targets and deadlines. It’s a major overhaul and requires the staff and resources to spend time getting accustomed to new system.
In general it’s always a tough ask to pitch in a major change when the organization is already chock a block with several issues and operations.
