Important criteria when selecting an ERP software
A branch in a different country, the desire for greater data transparency in controlling or a customer who requires EDI capability: There are many good reasons to consider a (new) ERP system – and, as digitization progresses, there is an increasing sense of urgency in many mid-sized companies. To remain competitive, it is often necessary not only to optimize business processes, but also to question the enterprise resource planning solution currently being used. A wide range of ERP software are available, but daily work allows little time for strategic considerations or months spent comparing different providers. The bad news: Expensive mistakes can only be avoided through careful planning of an ERP Software project. The good news: In addition to the question of cost, there are five important criteria that offer maximum certainty in the selection process.
ERP Software that incorporates all business areas and locations, provides data centrally and automates processes is much more efficient than island solutions. An integrated solution minimizes frictional losses in the exchange of information, dispenses with time-consuming and error-prone synchronization processes and avoids data redundancies, media discontinuities and manual duplicate entries.
ERP software should be able to grow with the company – whether establishing several domestic sites or expanding internationally. A local presence of the software provider makes the process of implementing the ERP system in new branches much easier.
For many companies, there is an indispensable need for special functions to ensure all workflows are mapped and to fully utilize the value creation potential of enterprise resource planning. The big all-rounder ERP Software do not necessarily support every industry-specific process – in the worst case, these will have to be programmed retrospectively through time-consuming customizing. Industry solutions for mid-sized companies can provide a less complicated (and cheaper) solution here.
The provider must offer a vision – and the technological expertise – for how it will continue developing the software to the state of the art for many years to come. It's better if the provider doesn't just see itself as a software manufacturer, but as a partner who accompanies the company through its digital transformation.
ERP software should be flexible enough to provide each user with exactly the required information at any particular time – if possible on an intuitive user interface and at the push of a button.
Anyone who takes the time to define the company's objectives, document the requirements of the different departments and select ERP software providers accordingly, is making a sound investment in the future of the company. Tests, certifications and references can also help with the initial selection. And if you still find it hard to decide despite all the objective criteria, go with your gut instincts – or, to be precise, the trust you feel in the people behind the software.
