What are the points to be remembered while choosing an ERP package?

Points to remember:


  • Choose an ERP package that is industry-standards based
  • Look closely at maintenance costs
  • Evaluate your processes and decide if changing them to fit a particular ERP suite would be beneficial.
  • Discuss a vendor's stability with the vendor representatives and outside experts
  • Find out how much customization assistance the vendor will offer
  • Be efficient in contract negotiations
  • And finally you must remember that you can't get everything you want.
  • Do accept that there is always going to be a functionality gap. Usually, you have to let 10% go.
  • If the gap is more than that then you must look further.
