No organization should make major investments or changes without thorough consideration. That includes undergoing a business software implementation. When you are slow to make the switch to an up-to-date ERP system, you can stumble into roadblocks that cost you big.
Don’t put your enterprise at risk. If you’re experiencing any of the following issues in your operations, it’s time to really look into an ERP implementation.
When there is poor operational visibility
You can’t effectively manage your supply chains without total insight at every step of the way. But without an ERP solution, you will often find yourself struggling to access reports and data when you need them. It could be waiting weeks for necessary materials to show up or being unable to view inventory levels.
Without visibility into your processes, you can’t notice these critical shortcomings, resulting in detrimental downtime. ERP software is built to facilitate this end-to-end insight.
When your systems are outdated
After relying so long on platforms such as legacy ERP software, QuickBooks, or Excel, a new business software installation can feel like an intimidating next step. But the longer you stay with your legacy solutions, the more likely you are to experience errors and inefficiencies that inhibit growth.
When you encounter delays, your vendor probably won’t be able to provide support. When your business grows or you need to modify operations in line with new demands, your older system won’t be responsive enough to keep up.
Keeping your business secure and efficient requires up-to-date ERP solutions. The latest ERP solutions include patches and other safety features to protect you from new threats. They also provide innovative technology to help you gain an edge over your competition.
Are you unable to meet customer needs?
Today’s customers won’t settle for anything below expectations. Failure to provide accurate information, answer questions fast, customize orders or deliver products on time are all recipes for disaster. Though ERP is often not looked at in terms of customer experience, it’s an integral part of optimizing the buyer’s journey.
Streamlined processes yield an increase in on-time deliveries. Greater visibility amounts to better precision, so you can answer each customer query and provide accurate products.
When you want to make major business changes
Businesses dream of expanding into new markets and landing multi-million-dollar clients, but these dreams can come crashing down when your outdated systems fail to deliver the performance you need to support major changes.
Spreadsheets and post-its can’t serve as a central hub for accurate, real-time data to enable users across your enterprise to manage processes. QuickBooks can’t handle big data or multiple, global accounts. Your legacy ERP can’t easily accommodate multiple servers or high transaction volume.
Are you tired of slow, manual processes?
As your business accrues more and more data, your employees can’t feasibly enter information into your system quickly and accurately. This creates costly errors and processes that take forever to complete. Our consultants have seen ERP systems cut operations down from weeks to hours, all through the power of automation. Just about any repetitive, manual task can be automated through ERP software.
