When it comes to ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) there are two areas in which it is critical to “get it right”: selection and implementation. It goes without saying that you want to choose the best ERP solution for your company and your budget. But implementation is equally important. Proper implementation will enable you to meet the needs of your company and your customers and will essentially allow you to remain competitive.

You may have heard horror stories about disruptive or even failed ERP implementations, but those are actually very uncommon, provided you choose the right solution and the right implementation partner.

    Very useful piece of advice. Before trying a vendor I would recommend checking the ratings and reviews on such portals as capterra, getapp or software-advice. This will help to understand if it’s worth spending your resources to try the particular vendor.
