If you take your time and choose wisely, your risk of picking the wrong solution for your needs or going through a long and tedious implementation process goes down.

This whitepaper, ‘ERP Software Selection: The Critical Steps’, outlines seven important steps to follow when selecting an ERP solution for your business. Of these steps, we’ve picked a select few to give you a sneak preview:

  1. No Question is a Stupid Question: How can you determine what the organization needs if you don’t ask people what they need to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively? Don’t forget about all the departments affected by ERP. If your decision can make their jobs easier, morale is increased and frustration decreased, making your workplace a more productive place to be.
  2. Going Back to School: ERP selection should be thought of as a learning opportunity. Not only will you learn more about your business than you ever have before,you will open the door to new possibilities because of this. It is best to find an ERP reseller that is willing to teach you the ins and outs from the very beginning.
