8 Ways to Improve Your Business Systems

In a perfect world, enterprise software (ERP’s, MRP’s, BI, etc…) would do everything you need it to do and more. Anything with a 6-7 figure price tag should work smoothly, install easily, and create revenue for your company…in a perfect world.

But, the world isn’t perfect. Anyone who’s ever implemented an ERP knows it often takes longer, costs more, and does less than you thought. (Exhibit A: Read about the Waste Management/SAP litigation.)

A couple things to watch out for with enterprise software:

  1. One size does not fit all. Every company is different, and every company may need different features. You can’t expect a boxed solution to exactly fit all of your company’s needs.
  2. It becomes outdated. Your business needs will change over time, but will your enterprise software keep up? Probably not without expensive upgrades.

But don't worry, there are ways to overcome these obstacles. Find out how: Read our free white paper which examines 8 different approaches for improving your Enterprise Systems.
