Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is a single integrated suite and a core system for medium-sized and large organizations allowing them to streamline all major business processes and operations. When implementing an ERP system, the issue that most frequently shows up is how to make the software work the way you want and need it to, but not the other way round.

Naturally, there is a choice between an out-of-the-box ERP solution and tailor-made software. Which one to chose? The matter is that if you are investing in ERP software, it must help your business become smarter and more efficient. Therefore, you have to make a very careful analysis of the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of the ERP and your possible benefits.

There is a widely spread misconception about the price of custom ERP solutions. Many people erroneously think that developing custom ERP software would cost more than an 'off-the-shelf' ERP solution. The truth is that it often turns just the opposite. Added expenses for modifications to the packaged ERP may by far exceed creation of a custom solution.

In addition to costly upgrades and expensive training, integration of a mass-market ERP product may turn frustrating also because of too complicated functionality with plenty of unnecessary components. On the other hand, with a custom ERP system you can tackle the challenges of your particular organization. Therefore, in many cases tailor-made software solutions are preferred by both medium-sized and large companies.

Please take a look at the major benefits of implementing a custom ERP system:

  • Proper level of optimization and harmonization of your company's processes
  • Better compliance with regulations and standards
  • Unified view of key performance metrics, specific to your organization
  • More accurate and faster decisions
  • Enhanced quality of user experience
  • Easier user training
  • Seamless connectivity to other applications
  • Possibility of extending the functionality
  • Greater opportunities for scalability
  • Easier implementation.

That all sounds pretty good, right? Being fully customizable also implies complete flexibility. Once your custom software system is in place, it provides a wealth of insight and the right toolkit to achieve greater results. Further, custom ERP software provides the foundation for your business to grow in the future. Maximize the value generated by your business! Use a robust custom ERP solution!
