How We Chose the Best Software Company

To help small and mid-sized businesses find the best ERP software service, we evaluated some of the leading ERP software companies based on the following criteria. Ultimately, your company’s unique needs will determine which ERP software is best suited for your business.

Multiple Software Functions

There are a couple of things every ERP software solution should contain. You may think of functional ERP software system requirements as the experiences and benefits an ERP system provides to your users. At a minimum, the platform should have functions, such as inventory management, customer relationship management, and business intelligence, etc.

Reporting and Analytics

ERP software analyzes data relating to all your business operations, such as client data, production statistics, and sales data, etc. For example, an ERP solution can help you create a budget, predict demand, and also analyze your personnel functions. Reporting tools that you should look in the package often include customizable dashboards, pie charts, Gantt charts, bar graphs, and many other visual representations.

Onboarding Support

Onboarding support is software training, and it helps you and your whole team to be successful. This is because it prepares you for using the new ERP software and offering support every step of the way. Onboarding support is important as it educates users and increases adoption rate.

What is ERP Software?

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a system of well-integrated software applications that help streamline, standardize, and integrate many business processes in an organization. Some of these processes are human resources, finance, procurement, and distribution, etc.

Most organizations have some type of operational and finance system in place. However, many software solutions on the market cannot go beyond routine business processes or assist with future business expansion and growth. This is why your business needs an ERP software platform. In most cases, ERP systems run on an integrated software platform with common data definitions operating on one database.

The software collects information about the activity as well as the state of different divisions and makes this information available to other units, where they can use the information productively. By integrating multiple disparate business processes in your company, ERP avoids inefficient workflows and duplication, improves collaboration between departments, making it possible to provide organizational decision-makers with business-critical information.

Benefits of ERP Software

There are several benefits of an ERP system. For example, it improves enterprise efficiency and business effectiveness in numerous ways. By integrating all your financial information into one comprehensive system, ERP systems unify your company’s financial reporting.

  • Reduces Costs and Saves Money. With an ERP system, you can reduce operational and administrative costs, easily prevent delays, and proactively manage operations via streamline and automated processes. As a reduction in your operational costs also reduces your working capital outlay, an ERP system helps you operate your business at a considerably lower cost.
  • Improves Financial Consolidation. Without an ERP solution, your business may have to use different and disparate programs in different departments. However, an ERP system is great as it eliminates the data silos that often arise from disparate software systems.
  • Optimizes Manufacturing. This function of ERP software can improve business communication and automates daily processes. It also offers manufacturers the great ability to meet customer needs and preferences while managing key organizational resources by accessing accurate and real-time data. The software can also optimize cost and project management as well as production planning.
  • Streamlines Supply Chain. A robust and effective ERP system also allows for real-time visibility into your supply chain and many other processes. This makes it easier and quicker for decision-makers to have a comprehensive view of their supply chain and reduce planning cycles.
  • Better Scheduling. Did you know that scheduling tools are now a highly customizable part of many ERP solutions? With these tools, you can easily organize delivery of inventory, when your workers and other staff come in for their shifts, and when your factory undergoes maintenance. You can then carefully coordinate each schedule into one calendar. This will ensure that all of your departments, as well as supply chain partners, can stay on the same page.
  • Improves Customer Satisfaction and Relations. Note that implementing an ERP solution will enable you to produce the most suitable product at the right time. This helps ensure accuracy and also meet customer needs. Also, on-time delivery is essential in maintaining

Must-have Features for ERP Software

There is no doubt that for many business organizations, ERP software is an ideal solution for automation, data analysis, and full-scale infrastructure integration. While the scope, scale, and functionality of ERP systems can vary widely, most ERP software solutions have the following features and characteristics:

  • A Common Database. Note that a common database is an important feature as it enables you to define data once for the whole enterprise with every department, such as finance and marketing, using the same definition. Many modern ERP systems split the physical database in order to improve performance.
  • Data Analysis. You know that an ERP collects and processes data from all your business functions. As a result, it makes sense to make the most of that information through data analysis. This ERP function helps find trends and patterns in your business processes. So, it enables users to better reflect on the efficiency and effectiveness of certain tasks, besides providing valuable forecasts for future business decisions.
  • Supply Chain Monitoring. You may know that production is one area that often causes headaches for many firms in the automotive manufacturing sector. And this is particularly true for organizations struggling to keep up with higher product demand. Excellent ERP systems have the ability to provide you with real-time data on your whole value chain, from production through to shipping. ERP solutions also have the ability to keep this valuable information in an archive for future audits and reference.
  • Enterprise-wide Integration. The software integrates business processes end to end across various departments and business units in your organization. For instance, a new order will automatically initiate a credit check and query product availability. It will also update the distribution schedule. As you can see, this feature is important to consider when investing in an ERP solution.

The Cost of ERP Software

If your business is investing in an ERP system, then pricing is certainly an important factor to keep in mind. ERP software is not cheap, and prices can vary depending on many factors, such as the type of deployment, level of customization, and the number of users. The per-month cost usually falls in the $201 to $300 per user range. Also, keep in mind that a vast majority of perpetual license budgets are in the range of $5,000 and $6,000 per user.

You should note that some ERP vendors display pricing publicly on their websites, particularly for cloud ERP solutions. On the other hand, some only provide a quote after determining your company’s business requirements.
