ERPs are deployed for valid reasons - to resolve the pain points - but what is often overlooked is the opportunity to do more than that

A peek inside this ERP investment guide: 

The decision to invest in an ERP is usually to resolve specific pain points but the return on investment (ROI) goes beyond that. Often what's not considered thoroughly enough are the business outcomes that can be achieved on top of resolving the pain or constraint that led them to implement an ERP. 

  • Calculating ROI - The Basics 
    The main components that should be taken into consideration when starting an ERP ROI calculation. 
  • What's driving the decision - and what's the potential?
    The pain-points that require an ERP implementation or upgrade as well as the potential business outcomes that may result from the process. All these are crucial variables that should be taken into account when implementing an ERP for your business. 
  • The quantifiable, the tangible and the intangible 
    Determining the gains from implementing an ERP is not always straightforward as some are intangible and can't be quantified. We list out the benefits that will result from an ERP setup - quantifiable and otherwise. 
  • Applying ROI calculations to the real world 

    An ERP streamlines business processes and increases the volume of transactions that can be achieved, with the same number of people. That provides scope for growth within existing resources, such as the number of employees. We have some real-life examples to illustrate this.
