Selecting an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can be extremely daunting and complex. With so many software solutions on the market, executives need guidelines on how to choose the solution that best fits their business.
Software Advice, a site dedicated to helping technology professionals select the ERP software they need to succeed, recently published an eBook titled, “Key Criteria for ERP Software Selection," which outlines the top factors to consider when selecting ERP software.
According to the eBook’s author, Forrest Burnson, “small to medium size businesses have more options than ever when it comes to implementing a fully-fledged ERP system.” Burnson went on to say, “In this day and age there aren't many good reasons for those growing businesses to continue using disparate systems and manual processes to execute on their business's operations when they're able to house all of their critical software under one roof for an affordable price. Understandably, it can be a daunting endeavor with so many vendors out there and so many considerations to factor in."
The eBook quotes Dan Griffin, director of product management at Exact Macola, discussing how an ERP solution can help manage and improve everyday business tasks. Dan also notes the importance of considering all of the business' needs and key requirements of the solution before making a selection.
