Getting Executive Buy-In: Proving ERP Software ROI

You know your business is ready to make the switch from a resource hungry, difficult to maintain, siloed legacy system to a modern and flexible cloud one. You’ve even researched software packages, and have made your short list, or picked the one you would most like to buy. But, before you can begin implementing your new ERP system, there’s still one more challenge that lies ahead. That’s getting all the decision-makers involved in the buying process to see that the system’s benefits will outweigh its costs.

The best way to do this is to present them with a cost-benefit analysis. However, because there are so many factors involved in an ERP implementation, this may not be as straightforward as you would think. Of course, your vendor’s quote will spell out many costs. But, there may be others that will be difficult to predict. The same holds true for the benefits. Some will be very easy to quantify and others will be more indirect.

Just because it may not be as straightforward as you might think, does not mean it is impossible to get an accurate ERP software ROI. In fact, Acumatica recently put out a white paper that walks readers step-by-step through this process.


The white paper will teach you how to:

  • Find all project costs, even the hidden ones.
  • Discover all the relevant direct and indirect benefits.
  • Measure and predict the future success of your business.
  • Use two proven methods to calculate ERP software ROI.
  • Maximize your chances of realizing tangible business improvements and financial savings as a result of implementing a new modern ERP system.
