ERPs are a bit like cars - they all have an engine, four wheels, and range from cheap to really expensive! But it takes the right make and model to ‘fit’ your needs and your style. Plus, you wouldn’t choose a Formula One race car for your daily commutes, and you probably wouldn’t pick a compact car if you want to tow the boat.
Car analogies aside – finding an ERP with the right fit for your organisation is an important decision, as the system will likely be with you for the next 10 years or more! On top of that, new ERP projects are a big ask for your organisation, so it pays to find a local ERP partner with experience in your industry to help make it less of a burden on your business.
