Recent ERP News and Articles

You naturally want to minimize risks and avoid cost overruns before signing a long-term contract for a new ERP system. Your prospective vendor also wants to minimize risk, but is usually not in a position to do anything other than give an implementation estimate based on lots of assumptions about scope, roles and responsibilities. These [...]

The SOW is a key document from your vendor that can make or break the implementation. The vendors will do their best to reduce their risk by limiting scope to a high level list, assuming that you will follow best practices, and making a lot of other assumptions about you doing work that you don’t [...]

December 3, 2015 from LinkedIn – “…Most SMEs and many larger companies are not experienced in running projects. It is just not something they need to do on a regular basis and certainly not with this much at stake.  An investment in the services of a skilled internal Project Manager is rarely a waste of [...]

A demonstration script is critical to the selection process but there are huge differences on how to do this. Rather than criticize the techniques we have read, I will share our methodology with you: Two demonstrations – You don’t want to go too deep on the first demonstration unless you are positive that the vendor will [...]

We don’t think so. There are many excellent products built by small companies for specific industries that are worthy of consideration. But there are risks that the vendor will not be around for the long haul. There are a number of ways to evaluate long-term viability: The system is built with old technology that is [...]

It’s not time to celebrate when the system goes live. Nor is it time to celebrate even if it’s on time or on budget. It’s only time to celebrate if the benefits in the business case have been realized. Ideally the benefits are in the form of a measurable metric or a Key Performance Indicator [...]

We ask the finalists in our software selection projects for a detailed breakdown of implementation costs by module (g/l, a/r, a/p, purchasing…) and by task (customization, integration, conversion, project management, design…). We provide them with a lot of information to make the estimate possible: detailed requirements business process review which includes process, problems, type of [...]

Buyer beware when estimating the costs of an ERP implementation. There are so many unknowns that make it really tough to avoid unpleasant surprises. The vendors are very reluctant to fix price anything when it comes to the services required because of the many unknowns – scope of work, who does what, capabilities and available [...]

September 1, 2015 from CPA Magazine and written by Michael Burns – “Welcome to our annual vendor survey on enterprise resource planning (ERP) software…” This year’s article is mostly about elusive ROI and what to look for when it comes to technology. The survey includes almost 100 ERP systems with key information for the following categories: Company [...]

June 1, 2015 from CPA Magazine and written by Michael Burns – “Making a business case for technology investments is challenging – and potentially career limiting. Anything you can learn from our peers’ experience in making these investments can be helpful in crafting a case. That is why we decided to run our own IT [...]

2014 from PwC – “…The brave new world of business application software is rapidly transforming how corporate IT departments source and implement all kinds of critical systems. Perhaps nowhere is this truer than in the realm of ERP systems, the software that runs virtually every large company in the world. CIOs are rethinking their approach [...]

We include small vendors in our system selection projects but only when we believe that they have a good client base, are really good for a specific industry and are using recent technology. A small company can also be a successful company and there are benefits to being a bigger fish in a smaller pond. [...]

Murphy’s Law is alive and well thanks to ERP implementations. The problems that often arise can be avoided and/or the impact reduced by good planning in advance and strong project management. Here are a few ways to fight Murphy: Ensure you have the right people (your A team) on the project and enough of their time [...]

March 27, 2015 from CFO – “Senior finance executives share their advice on selecting and implementing enterprise resource planning systems.”… 180 View – CFO asked the executives a number of questions including about value, total cost of ownership, flexibility, how to evaluate ERP vendors and implementation advice. One piece of advice was “Invest your best [...]

2015 from Shea Business Solutions – “…By their nature, ERP projects are large and complex. They never go according to plan. Things always come up, plans always change, people always have different priorities. As much as possible, build this into your plan. Have some contingencies – if you can’t work on some tasks for some [...]

An ERP system automates business processes across most, if not all, departments within an organization of any size or industry. Our definition of ERP encompasses accounting systems, which can automate business processes across departments within a smaller company.

The products have been segregated by tier based on target customer and price. Within each tier, we have further classified which applications are applicable to the systems as well as the distribution model. See the filter box above to sort for the desired tier, application, and distribution model.
