The Importance of an Industry Specific ERP
Selecting ERP software is a very intimidating process for any business. You are first faced with the choice between generic solutions and industry specific ERP systems. Traditional ERP systems were created with basic functionalities and features common to a wide range of industries. During the implementation process, IT consultants conduct a detailed system study to determine the customized solution based on a client’s precise requirements. Implementing a generic ERP is a massive undertaking that cost companies years of their lives and breaks the bank.
The ERP industry has evolved to the point that ERP software now specifically matches exact industries, saving both valuable time and money. When you choose an industry specific ERP software developed specifically for your industry, you can handle all of your business processes with minimal to no customization required. Other benefits to an industry specific ERP solution include:
- Shorter implementation window
- Reduced implementation cost
- Lower maintenance cost
Manufacturing processes can often require a more in-depth customized solution, so starting with a generic ERP solution can put you even further behind the game.
