Lumenia Consulting is an independent ERP consulting organisation, specialising in business transformation through the implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning and related enterprise software applications.
We listen carefully to each client to ensure that we understand their requirements and we clearly articulate how we will add value to each engagement, without resorting to jargon. We are flexible, honest and always deliver on our promises. Finally, all of our services are designed to encourage client collaboration.
We make independent recommendations on strategy for ERP and related business applications, ensuring that the proposed ERP project aligns with business objectives, has clearly defined goals and timelines and provides a solid business case that can be presented with confidence to Board-level stakeholders.
We accelerate business process transformation in ERP projects by capturing opportunities for improvement and facilitating client teams to envision future ways of working. We support this activity with an extensive library of sample good practice business process flow charts and examples of how technology can enable process change.
We use the experience from hundreds of previous projects to provide structured, proven processes to allow client teams to select the best value ERP solution, and to ensure that ERP contracts are commercial advantageous and structured in a way that minimises the risk of cost or time overruns.
We provide experienced project and change management resources to ensure that each ERP project is delivered on time and budget, and that the changes to business processes which will result, are fully adopted by managers and users.
Lumenia does not sell software and our independence means that we have no vested interest in pushing our clients towards particular software solutions. We focus instead on how enterprise applications can best be used to transform business processes and deliver measurable business benefit to our clients, whether this is through the deployment of new software or by getting more value from systems that are already in use.
Our value proposition
We have developed unique methodologies that allow our clients to undertake ERP and business change programmes using structured processes that maximise the likelihood of project success by promoting business ownership, minimising risk and controlling cost, while ensuring that planned business benefits are realised.
We employ an outstanding team of independent ERP consultants and support staff, supplemented with a network of trusted associates. The team has a wide variety of educational backgrounds covering diverse areas such as engineering, IT, finance, marketing and psychology. Prior to joining Lumenia, most of the team worked in industry as business process or functional managers and users of ERP and bring that practical experience and knowledge to bear on client projects.
All Lumenia consultants have a minimum of 10 years of professional experience and in many cases, significantly more than this. We have led hundreds of ERP and digital transformation projects involving all of the leading technology providers, including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Workday, Infor, IFS and many more.
There is a very high degree of collaboration amongst the consulting team, meaning that our clients benefit not only from the experience of the consultants who are engaged on their projects, but also the knowledge of the broader team. Collectively, this amounts to a vast amount of ERP and digital transformation project learning and experience.
Lumenia was part of the BSM Group and traded as BSM from 1997-2013. BSM’s business systems consulting practice was rebranded as Lumenia in 2013 and Lumenia became a standalone legal entity in 2015 following the acquisition of BSM’s Lean consulting practice by Efeso Consulting. The name Lumenia, derived from the Latin word lumen meaning light, was chosen to convey the sense of consulting services that bring clarity to business change projects that might otherwise be shrouded in risk, uncertainty and complexity.
Our clients are typically mid-size service, manufacturing, distribution or retail organisations, often with operations in multiple sites or countries. Operating from offices in Ireland and the UK and we have completed hundreds of ERP assignments for organisations across the world.
Lumenia's independent guidance was key to Sandvik selecting the right System Integrator for what is a large and complex global ERP implementation project. I would recommend Lumenia to any business that needs to bring structure, objectivity and deep expertise to their ERP selection process.
Based on their track record and detailed knowledge of our industry sector, Febelco engaged Lumenia to lead our ERP selection process. Having completed our selection project on time and under budget. Lumenia are one of the best consultancy businesses I have worked with, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other companies that need expert guidance as part of their ERP transformation process.
Lumenia provided very strong analytical and communication skills and knowledge of the ERP marketplace, as they guided us through the selection process. I think their contribution was irreplaceable, and now that the selection process is over, we have engaged them to manage our ERP implementation project.
Using Lumenia to support our ERP selection project was definitely value for money. There is no way we would have been able to complete the project so quickly if we had tried to manage it ourselves. Lumenia brought standard templates, organisation and the drive to get the job done.
