“Comparing ERP packages can be a daunting task. My advice is to take a more strategic view. A good implementation requires good software, a good implementer, and commitment from your company. The software is only one factor in this equation. Small companies may be able to select software based on a checklist of functionality. Larger, or growing companies need to base their selection on their unique requirements. Before comparing software, take a long hard look at your own company. Make sure you understand your processes, your workflows, and your audit requirements. Engage your team in the early stages. Taking a unilateral decision will cause change management issues down the track. People will support what they help create, and your team’s buy-in is a critical element in a successful implementation” – Ronnie Baskind, Managing Director.
Making a change to your current ERP system or investing in your first ERP system is a challenge all businesses face as they grow. While you may regard the time spent researching a solution as frustrating, the selection of suitable software is critical to the success of the implementation. So too is your choice of implementing partner. You should regard the time spent on research and selection of both software and implementation partner, as an insurance policy. The more thorough this selection, the lower your risk.

When looking at what your company requires, it is a good idea to also look at you’re your company does not require. Unnecessary complexity will simply cause frustration for the users. But, as companies grow, they become more complex. Some software has a focus on just getting the job done with a minimum of bureaucracy. However, larger, more complex businesses require some attributes not found in small company software:
Separation of Responsibilities
Workflow driven processes
Corporate Governance and Audit Requirements
These are 3 fundamentals that must be considered before looking at the functional footprint of the software.
