Choosing the right ERP for your business

Last updated:

The operation of the companies is unique, unique to each. Indeed, they do not have the same stakes, not the same needs or the same means, because their sector of activity varies, as much as their experience, their workforce, their in-house skills or even their type of clients. On the other hand, whether you are a small company or a very large group, one point is crucial for the smooth development of your company: the follow-up and the proper management of the needs of the company. To meet this much-needed demand, companies have developed software packages dedicated to managing the needs of companies: ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning.

Different ERPs depending on your activity

To find out which one is best for your ERP project, take the time to ask yourself all the questions, to know what are the ins and outs of your project through a detailed specifications to anticipate future needs, but also to include your employees in this process and train them for the management of its management.

Companies operate in a multitude of industries, from industry to high technology, agri-food and personal service. For all these companies, the acquisition of an ERP is an effective solution to best manage its functional needs. But how can a software package meet all the needs of companies operating in sectors that are sometimes radically different, constantly evolving?

Today, there are many software that have been developed specifically for certain types of companies: the most generalist ERPs cover the needs of businesses without complex activities and allow to rely on many adjustments. ERP trades can meet complex needs, they may not be able to cover all the needs of the company, but can be combined with general ERPs to achieve all the expected features.

How do I identify my ERP?

To find out which software package is best suited to its business, it is necessary to ask three questions: for what type of activity do I need this ERP, how much will it help improve the efficiency of the company and what data will I rely on to carry out this project? Choosing the right ERP is not easy, as there are many solutions to date, more or less developed as needed, and at varying prices depending on the size of the project.

By choosing to use an ERP in the conduct of your project, you will guarantee your company a stable solution for the functional needs of your business. However, good ERP project management doesn’t just rely on the presence of your software package. Indeed, it makes sense thanks to the presence and involvement of the dedicated team and the human resources that follow the evolution of the company with the objectives it has set itself. Setting up your ERP should match your business, meet your needs and fill your weaknesses to make them stronger. So you have to take the time to study all the software packages available to find the most suitable for the project you are conducting.
