Mental exhaustion 1640

There are countless benefits to implementing an ERP, including increased efficiency, better business insights, and lower operating costs. If you’re not seeing tangible benefits in the first three years after implementing an ERP, you might have the wrong solution.

How do you know if you’re using the wrong ERP for your business? Here are some of the most common signs:

  1. You’ve turned to using multiple solutions because you don’t have all the features you need in your integrated business management software
  2. Not everyone on your team has access to the information they need to be successful
  3. You don’t have easy access to your critical financial information
  4. You can’t easily integrate information from vendors and suppliers in your system
  5. There’s little to no automation capabilities to simplify time-consuming, manual tasks
  6. You haven’t seen the return on your investment after the first couple years of use
  7. You don’t get the support you need from your ERP provider
  8. You find yourself creating workarounds due to the limitations of the system

If you’re struggling with your current ERP solution, it’s important to ask yourself if your ERP is working for you or you’re working for your ERP.

An integrated business management solution is designed to simplify your day-to-day operations and provide you with opportunities to scale and grow your business. If that’s not the case with your current solution, it might be time to rethink your investment.
