Companies should consider replacing their ERP software if it is built on an old database with an old language. But in less defined scenarios . . . it’s imperative to ask if your vendor will help your business keep up with changing technology.
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 31, 2013
CTS Guides, a leading publisher of ERP software reviews, ratings and evaluation tools, has released a new report from Harry Landsburg, Director of Business Process Technology Consulting for the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center, that explores the question: Is it time to retune, refine or replace your manufacturing ERP software?
In his report, Landsburg offers a step-by-step system that manufacturers can use to evaluate their current ERP system to make informed decisions on how to improve utilization or identify when it’s time to replace their software and, perhaps more importantly, their software vendor. The report goes into significant detail about how to evaluate an ERP software vendor’s performance and includes a list of danger signs to look for when considering whether a vendor will be an adequate long term technology partner.
“Companies should consider replacing their ERP software if it is built on an old database with an old language,” Landsburg stated. “But in less defined scenarios, when trying to determine whether it’s time to retune, refine or replace an ERP system, it’s imperative to ask if your vendor will help your business keep up with changing technology.”
