Ready to purchase Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software? CIO website offers pointers.

‘CRM’ and ‘ERP’ are just two examples of abbreviations associated with productivity software in the blizzard of offerings scattered throughout the digital landscape today.


In fact, they represent the reason why many employees simply push back on using new software. Admittedly, they often fall back on using their legacy programs because they don’t know how to use the new, or they get lost in the many different terms and types of solutions.

That’s why it is imperative for stakeholders eyeing the use of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to drill-down on just how the platform will benefit the company.

CIO magazine offers a few considerations for decision-makers to ponder before they make the leap to purchase ERP software:

Support from the C-level suite!

Look above and beyond the IT department, or a even a few managers, for that wave of support. What’s needed is for the C-level folks to get on board as well. What’s more, it’s crucial for the latter to acquire a working knowledge of the ERP platform. This can pave the way for workers in the trenches to embrace the change.

Be clear on your requirements.

Don’t simply take a few recommendations from business associates, or even vendors, before purchasing---this is often the case because companies are in a hurry to get it up and running.

Make sure a very specific list of requirements is signed-off on by all the stakeholders. This requires examining very closely the business processes within the organisation.

Don’t forget ‘mobile.’

Today’s ERP software does not just reside on desktop PCs. It’s accessible via mobile devices, and elevates this suite to an even more productive suite for workers on the road, or in the field.
