According to this article, “Most big companies rolled out their first ERP systems more than a decade ago. Now one in four businesses plans to upgrade or roll out a new ERP system.” It’s only natural that this would come about sooner than later, especially with how fast technology is progressing these days.
Some companies have been trying to hold onto their current ERP solution because of the bad reputation it’s had in previous years. ERP implementations are known to be a huge undertaking; one that takes time, resources, and can hold up business. Now, ERP software is making a comeback because of streamlined implementation processes and features. It’s also more affordable now with Software as a Service (SaaS) options instead of fully on-premise.
If you’ve been holding on to QuickBooks or Peachtree, but growing fast as a company, you’re most likely experiencing growing pains that could be hurting your business. If you’re growing, this is a surefire sign that you need to get your ERP system in check and up to par with the business you do on a daily basis. Don’t let ERP hold you back. It should help you do business instead of limit the extent of your reach.
If you’re growing fast, you may also have operations in more than one country. This type of growth requires advanced functionality. Epicor ERP represents this functionality by complying with the requirements of the world’s major markets through an adaptable business architecture and configurable engine approach.
