Chardon, Ohio (PRWEB) July 24, 2013 -- Selecting and implementing ERP software can be one of the most expensive and time consuming projects that a company embarks on. If done correctly, a change of ERP can also be the most beneficial project to a company. Therefore, education is crucial during the beginning stages of ERP selection. This is the driving purpose behind “6 Common Mistakes Businesses Make When Selecting ERP Software,” a white paper authored by e2b teknologies, an ERP business software developer and consulting organization.
“We’ve been in the ERP software industry for nearly two decades, and we’ve heard the same ERP horror stories get repeated over and over,” said Lynne Henslee, President of e2b teknologies. “So many businesses underestimate the amount of planning that goes into large software selection and implementation, and they end up with a system they have to eventually abandon after a short while. We wrote this white paper to help educate business owners who are in this vulnerable stage of ERP selection and to help them make better choices.”
Implementing a new ERP system for a business is much like buying a new home for an individual. It’s an extremely important investment and carries a lot of risk if the buyer makes the wrong choice. ERP systems for midsize companies typically cost upwards of $50,000 but the real cost is much higher as consulting and training to setup the system is typically as much or more than the initial software cost. Further, most ERP systems take at least six to twelve months to implement and companies use ERP systems for an average of 7-10 years making their ERP selection one of the most important decisions they will ever have to make.
The white paper walks through six of the biggest mistakes companies make in their ERP decision process and shows how they can be averted. It covers several different factors that companies need to consider when in this process, factors such as who should be involved, time and resources required for implementation, selecting a technology partner, budget, and deciding a maintenance strategy.
