There are three excellent reasons why your organization should buy a new ERP or financial system right now; not six or twelve months from now, right now.

The first reason is that your staff might have some extra time right now.  If you wait until you’re busy, it’s usually too late and projects often get delayed or cancelled when staff don’t have time available for new initiatives.  It generally takes at least three months or more to get a new system implemented so you’ll need to incorporate that into your planning.

The second reason is that as you expand, you will need to improve your productivity.  You can either hire more people or become more productive.  A new ERP system can significantly enhance your productivity without hiring extra people and although we all wince when people start talking about measuring return on investment, it may only take one or two salaries over the course of one year to fund a new system.  The long term savings are much higher.

And, finally, implementation and software costs are probably lower right now and the quality of service higher than they will be when the ERP implementation partners become busy again.  Most implementation partners have downsized over the past two years and you can be sure they have kept the best staff they had at the start of the downturn.

All in all, three very good reasons why you should buy a new ERP system sooner than later.  At Open Door Technology we work hard to keep your costs as low as possible while making sure you get the system you need for your business.  Rapid implementation methodology combined with Microsoft Sure Step project management processes ensure you get the maximum value possible.
