Implementation Costs for Axapta

Implementation Costs for Axapta

Post by T3V0bG9vay » Thu, 19 Jan 2006 10:51:02

I am on a team that is selecting a new ERP and we are leaning towards Axapta.
Initially we would implement a 5 user version with the following modules:

Base Package
Financial Series II
Fixed Assets
FRx Financial Reporter - Desktop
Trade Series
Trade Agreements
Project 1
Upgrade Subscription

The VARs do not provide a quotation for the implementation cost but both
have estimated a 1 to 1 ratio of implementation costs to software costs.
There is a substantial difference between the prices quoted on the software
modules between the two vendors.

Can anyone give me some numbers from their implementation of these modules
so I can get a feel for what I am up against here. The company I am working
with does not have a 'warm' feeling for projects that go out of control so
any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

If you only consider out-of-pocket costs (means: you disregards internal
hours spent on the project) my experience tells that the licence fee to
implementation costs ratio is between 1 and 2. Which means that every euro on
licence fee means 1 to 2 euros on implementation cost
(consulting/hardware/project management/etc.). And honestly you'll be closer
to 2 than to 1.
