The Best ERP Solutions Are Those Tailored to Your Company

The best ERP solution for a retailer is different from the best solution for a wholesaler—and still more different than the best solution for a manufacturer. There are similarities in industries, but each company is unique, so the solutions must be unique. Even your fiercest competitor’s best ERP solution wouldn’t be the right fit for your organization.

The high amount of customization required to successfully execute ERP projects should give you a heads-up: Your solution will not come with any blueprints for success or an instruction manual of how-tos. You cannot copy and paste some other organization’s ERP solution onto your business.

To find the best ERP solution for your organization, you will need some in-depth analysis of your business processes and regulatory requirements. You must pinpoint the exact functions and modules your operations demand. Further, most companies require additional solutions to cover mainline topics of global trade impact, corporate governance, risk management, and company-wide compliance. Retaining a partner will be especially critical if you are looking to add GRC or GTS functions to your final solution. The right partner will guide you to the best ERP solution for implementation success.

Own Your Project Through Quality Partner Engagement

  • Not a generalist: Generalists can be great at implementing some of the best ERP solutions available. However, they often fall short when GRC or GTS functions enter the mix or project complexity goes beyond basic ERP projects.
  • Industry specialization: Partners that have a high level of specialization in your industry will know exactly which GRC and GTS functionalities need to be in place. They will bring a deep understanding of the complex rules and regulations you have to navigate.
  • Proven implementation track record: Look into any prospective partner to identify their ERP implementation history. Never take marketing or sales hype as gospel. Investigate the prospective partners. Good partners will welcome the questions and be forthcoming with studies and references.
  • Being direct with guidance and input: The investment of time and money in your project deserves a partner that will use direct communication. That saves valuable resources while reducing the potential for misunderstandings and missed milestones. It is better to have a blunt partner that relays the situation as it is, so that appropriate measures can be taken.

Understanding and Driving Business Goals and Needs

Enlisting the help of an experienced partner adds a crucial dynamic to your solution. Ideally, they will have an elevated level of experience thanks to other engagements in your industry. In some cases, industry is no the limiting factor, but rather other constraints such as compliance, corporate policy, costs, and trade restrictions, to name a few. An innovative and experienced partner can help facilitate the best decisions when balances these factors. Your partner will be in a position to evaluate your current state and identify where your gaps are, aligning these with GRC and GTS modules. The flexibility that these modules offers ensures that you can easily change your ERP system by adding or removing modules as required.
