Why Bakerfield Solutions is The Right Partner to Help You Navigate Digital Transformation
At Bakerfield Solutions, we know how big a decision it is for any organization to choose to undergo a digital transformation. A successful digital transformation involves selecting the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, migrating your data, training staff, and more. It could literally be the biggest, and most expensive, undertaking that your organization ever commits to.
So, it can be a bit disconcerting when analysts at Gartner report that 55% to 75% of digital migration projects go over budget, miss crucial milestone dates, or just outright fail. With those sobering stats in mind, the thought of starting your firm down the path of digital transformation can be daunting.
However, we’re here to tell you that the company you partner with to help you navigate your digital transformation can make all the difference between success and failure.

We use top-notch technology. Bakerfield Solutions is proud to partner with Acumatica, the Cloud ERP. In fact, we use Acumatica’s eight-step digital transformation plan to ensure the most successful outcomes.
What is Acumatica’s Eight-Step Digital Transformation Plan?
Acumatica’s eight-step plan is a streamlined, reliable process that has helped thousands of organizations successfully complete digital transformations.
These are the steps involved:
Assemble: A project team is assembled before any work is started or there’s any spend of money. It includes employees from Bakerfield Solutions and the client. This team is needed for all the steps that follow.
Discovery: The discovery phase is where we define the need, vision, scope of the project, and obtain commitment from the client to continue.
Plan & Monitor: This is when we develop a strategy to complete the work and define metrics to measure progress.
Analyze: The analyze stage is a deeper dive into the client’s requirements and business needs to ensure we understand every last detail.
Build: Here’s where the rubber meets the road. We use the strategy defined in step 3 as our guide to actually install the system and start migrating data.
Stabilize: In the stabilize phase, we ensure that the solution we built meets the client’s requirements and is ready for full deployment to a live production environment. At this phase, we also ensure that the client is ready to make the switch by ensuring everyone is trained, ready, and even excited, for the change
Deploy: The solution goes into a production environment. This can be done in stages or by just “flipping the switch” so everything comes online at once. We don’t consider the project to be completely “live” until the old system is shut off.
Support: In this phase, the new ERP is online, and we’re supporting the client for months after. Users and technical support resources will continue to verify proper operation. User training continues to show users more of what the ERP system software has to offer and help them reap the full benefits of the system. This eventually leads to project closure.
