Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software has proved to be a strategic tool which if used effectively can present numerous advantages to an organization. With the help of ERP software, organizations can streamline their overall business procedures, reduce operational costs, enhance the productivity of employees on the whole, in addition to several other benefits. Though there are a number of organizations offering ERP solutions, it is simply not easy to choose an ERP solution that suits the specific requirements of your business. Various ERP software are equipped with diverse features, configurations which renders it quite intricate to opt for a solution that best matches the needs of your business.
As mentioned, the number of organizations offering ERP solutions is several however, the fact of the matter is that none of these organizations have a clear understanding of your business. In fact, only the organization seeking ERP solution will have an in-depth knowledge about their business and they are in a better position to select the right ERP software that suits their business needs. Another challenge when it comes to selecting the right ERP software is the fact that the ERP landscape is continuously changing. There are new features that are added to existing ERP solutions and organizations offering ERP solutions are also changing their approach when it comes to developing appropriate ERP software.
In such a situation, it is imperative that the organization seeking ERP solution has a clear cut idea about what they are looking for and how a specific ERP solution can prove to be apt for their organization. The organization needs to identify areas within their operations that they believe needs to be optimized to enhance the business process or improve outcomes. The organization also needs to weigh the pros and cons as to how implementing ERP solution can help the organization in optimizing their processes. Similarly, the requirements of different organizations within each industry would drastically vary. For example, in the logistics industry, a particular ERP solution that works for one organization may not necessarily work for another organization from the same industry. A 'one size fits all' approach may not work. Rather organizations need to be clear about the specific issues they intend to resolve by implementing ERP software within their business process and outlining the expected outcomes.
Organizations also need to understand the capacity of the intended ERP software to be easily integrated within their existing processes or understand whether the ERP solution can be aligned to the purpose with which it is being acquired for example, return on investment, process optimization etc.
Cost is another factor that organizations need to take into consideration while opting for ERP software as it can be expensive. But, cost cannot be considered as a distinct factor on the basis of which organizations select ERP software. The common belief that higher cost means higher quality and low cost means low quality may not be necessarily true. There are ERP software that are expensive but have high functionality and ERP software that are comparatively cheaper but offers the same level of functionality. Therefore, the choice of ERP software should not be on the cost of the product but rather it should be on the offered functionality and how it matches with the business requirements.
Another factor that needs to be kept in mind is to assess the viability of the vendor providing the ERP software. The organization should ensure whether the role of the vendor will be restricted only till the sale process or whether extended support and maintenance services are provided.
Selecting the best ERP software can be a challenging proposition considering the fact that the market is inundated with several ERP software service providers. In view of this, it is essential that the organization keeps the above said factors in mind while selecting ERP software. To reiterate, these factors would pertain to understanding the business requirements, weighing the pros and cons, integration and alignment with existing processes, cost and viability of vendors. These factors can be crucial in enabling organizations to choose the right ERP software solution that best matches their business requirements.
