Whether you are outgrowing entry-level software or replacing a legacy system, choosing an ERP that is a good fit for your company can have a strong impact on your future growth and profitability. Because the cost of implementing an ERP is so high, demanding a great deal of time and input from employees across your organization as well as potentially significant software licensing and consulting fees, there is tremendous pressure to get it right the first time.
Despite these high stakes, most decision makers selecting and implementing ERP software will not do so more than a few times in their career. The purchasing relationship is therefore tilted in favor of the vendor, with many vendors requiring hours of qualification before revealing crucial details such as features and pricing.
When dealing with vendors, it is therefore essential to accurately and completely communicate the needs of your organization to avoid finding out 6 months into implementation that the project isn’t feasible or that an unexpected and expensive custom development is required.
In recent years there has been a trend in business software towards a software as a service (SaaS) model. Most major business software vendors, ERP or otherwise, have begun offering their locally installed products in a cloud-hosted version to provide additional flexibility. When deploying a cloud-based software, there is no need for a local server or other network hardware as data is managed and processed on a secure off-site server which, depending on the size of the deployment, can significantly reduce the initial cost of a system. This can make a cloud solution a better choice for small and medium size businesses with less capital.
Many factors must be considered when choosing a manufacturing software. The complexity of the production workflow, the degree to which demand fluctuates, the lead times of production and procurement, the size of the organization, the growth rate of the business, the stock keeping needs, the complexity of the support operations in a plant. The list, as they say, goes on. You must make the decision based on your own superlative knowledge of your business while working closely with whichever vendor you choose.
