A Ready Reckoner for Selecting the Right ERP Software

According to The Wall Street Journal, out of more than 1,000 manufacturing systems in North America, almost 7.8% are grossly dissatisfied with their existing ERP systems. Let’s see why!

For a failed ERP, many factors come into play. Some of these include planning and work allocation and training and development of resources for strategic implementation; each task is critical. Laxity on even one of these factors may lead to failure of the ERP. The success of an ERP solution begins with choosing the right software; the team at Synergy Resources is always there to help you on this.

Let’s see what it takes to make a prudent choice in ERP software:

  • Support the ERP purchase with a case study – Research how the new ERP system will benefit your organization. Will it actually streamline the internal business processes and lead to the results that you are expecting to see? Unless the ERP strategy is streamlined at this stage, you might end up with just good-to-look-at software that doesn’t do much apart from painting a rosy picture. To see positive results, you need to put a concrete strategy in place.

  • Jot down your unique, critical business requirements – ERP is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Define the critical requirements that are unique to your business mission. What follows is a comparison between the must-haves’ and what the ERP software offers.

  • Although our customers speak highly of our services; we encourage you to get in touch with those who did not refer us. This well help you get an unbiased review of the ERP software implementation that we provide. For example, you could look up an organization that has been using VISUAL ERP Scheduling or Quality software for the past year. This would mean that the software has been implemented well and the company is now beyond the learning curve.

  • Software costs play a major role. However, never compromise on value. At Synergy Resources, we strive to offer full value for your money through our software, services and support. Working with an ERP vendor who is bad at any one of these can be detrimental to your ERP strategy.

  • For success, ERP software training is a must. As a professional ERP software vendor, we train your employees on the software usage as well. We set up the selected ERP system as per your unique requirements and even test-run the same based on your data.

We strive to help you select an ERP system that offers the solutions that you expect so that you are completely satisfied with it. The above steps won’t only ensure that you get the right software for your organization; it will also ensure that your company is successful in the complete endeavor.
