Are better known companies the best choice when considering ERP implementation?
Members of the implementing team that are going to be dedicated for your company during the implementation, are a key success factor to consider. Rather than concentrating on having a big name behind your implementation, we would suggest you get more details on the Consultants and their project management that are going to form the team of this implementing company.
If small companies have good capabilities among them and seem to be up to their promises in the contract, then this would be satisfying.
Sometimes big named companies would issue a sub contract to smaller implementing companies brought from Asia, but usually and for some reasons such implementations fail.
Again, you might get excited during the discussions held, but nothing is going to be guaranteed if not documented in the contract.
