Frequently asked questions about upgrading to Monitor G5
Can our company upgrade?
The majority of companies that run Monitor G4 can upgrade to G5.
To give you a preliminary indication on when your company can upgrade to Monitor G5, we’ll firstly need to look over your current system. We do this together with you as soon as you register interest in Monitor G5, or when you contact us.
How much does it cost to upgrade?
For existing Monitor ERP (G4) customers, upgrading the standard program is free of charge. This is part of your update agreement. The services we provide as part of the upgrade are charged on an ongoing basis.
How long does it take to upgrade?
It’s difficult to say because every company is unique, and things can differ a lot from project to project. On average though, it usually takes somewhere from two to four months from registration of interest to when you can go live with G5 in your day to day work.
How do you upgrade to G5?
We have adaptations in our Monitor ERP system, what will happen with these when we upgrade?
More than 80 per cent of all adaptations are normally no longer required when an upgrade takes place. This is because Monitor G5 includes a lot of functionality which previously required an adaptation. For example, you can now build document adaptations and reports in Monitor ERP. In the event you still need to adapt the program in some way, we’ll give you a price proposal for this at the start of the upgrade process.
We have more than one company, do they all have to upgrade at the same time?
No, they don’t have to upgrade at the same time, but we can normally do this if required. It is possible to run G4 and G5 at the same time within a single group. However, we have customers that have upgraded all companies in the same group with excellent results.
Depending on the setup, we can sometimes upgrade every company in the same group at the same time; sometimes not. Contact us so we can look at the best solution for you.
Will our staff need training for the upgrade?
It’s important to know that G5 is a new system. You’ll need to go through your routines and workflows in G4 ahead of the upgrade, so you can perform testing and learn how to carry them out in G5.
Naturally, we’re here to help you ensure the transition is smooth as possible. To make sure issues don’t arise after the upgrade, all upgrade projects should be overseen by a Monitor consultant.
To get the most out of the new system and ensure user experience is as good as possible, we strongly recommend that you take the time to learn G5 properly before you start working with the system. Every company that upgrades has access to Monitor Academy, our e-learning platform. Academy enables you to familiarize yourself with every part of G5 through step-by-step courses.
And our online help for Monitor G5 includes videos which outline the differences between G4 and G5 in each module and procedure.
Our company use Monitor Basic. Can we upgrade to G5?
There is no Basic version of Monitor G5. If you are interested in upgrading to Monitor G5, please contact us for a quote.
How long will we be able to use our existing Monitor ERP system?
We've made sure that Monitor G4 complies with country-based law and authority-demands during a transition-period, to ensure that everyone can upgrade to G5 without any problems. This transition-period is now about to end, so after the December 31 2023 there will be no more development of Monitor G4.
With this in mind we strongly recommend that everyone who is still using Monitor G4 should upgrade their systems to Monitor G5 before the end of 2023, to ensure compliance with current legal and and authority demands.
Time to wave goodbye to G4!
All development of Monitor ERP is now focused on the latest generation, G5. This means support for the previous version will begin to be phased out in the coming years.
But don’t worry. We’ll help you take the next step.
Upgrading to Monitor G5 is a way to future-proof your business. The wide range of improvements and new features will help you get more from your day-to-day work through greater efficiency, better workflows, and a clear, user-friendly interface.
