Selecting the Right ERP Platform for Your Organization
Selecting the right ERP solution is always a big question for decision makers. This is because of so many implementation failures due to wrong selection of ERP system.
Implementation of the ERP - Once the decision has been taken on which ERP software you are going to buy, make a proper plan of implementation of the same. Whenever there is a new addition in any company, the first obstacle comes from the workers of the company, as they are mostly layman and used to the old software which they are using for long. So you have to take them in confidence and should train them properly to use the new ERP software. Next is, whatever promise your vendor does to you, don't take them seriously; always ask for a demo version for a limited time so that you personally can understand the functionality of the ERP software. You must test the software from all possible angles, to see its working; also you should keep a tab that all the modules and the functionalities should work well.
Evaluate the benefits of the new system - You have to make sure that the new ERP software which you have chooses is giving what exactly you are looking for. Like if your motto is to reduce costs and increase revenue then you must ensure that your ERP software is giving just that to you.
Focus on more option - Though there are few ERP vendors are known for their best selling products but when you are choosing the right ERP Software platform, you can always look for option, because these days, more and more new customized ERP solutions are available by lesser known vendors but they generally give best price along with best service in order to curve a niche in the market. Some times Its better to go for the quality of the software than the brand of the company.
In Nutshell - Try to find the ERP which are high on speed, less on errors, the communicative part of the software in high. The portability and the integrity are very satisfactory, while internet support is available and E commerce facility has been taken care off. Easy to use, easy to maintain and fits in the budget of the company are the key factor while choosing the right ERP software platform.
