Yet many ERP implementations fail miserable during the initial stages of the operational phase itself or fail or deliver the promised benefits. Why does this happen? Given below are some of the most common reasons-

ERP success Accelerators
Accelerators are pre-configured versions of an ERP software solution, usually based on specific industry verticals. Some vendors also provide tools designed to accelerate the configuration process by providing lists of standard questions that their functional consultants use to configure the software to meet a client‟s business requirements.
