The essential ERP guide

Once a business reaches a certain size and business processes become fairly complex, it may become worthwhile to invest in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. ERP systems integrate software systems throughout an organization, and specifically focus on the interconnected domains of financials, human resources, and project management. This article explains what ERP software can do, provides guidelines for evaluating the costs and benefits of ERP investment, and surveys the main features of available ERP packages. Because ERP software can affect everything in the organization, care needs to be taken when choosing a solution. The ERP solution should have a good track record, and specific consideration should be given to the organization's internal processes, and to executive buy-in. The software should have an easy-to-use interface, and be customizable and scalable to meet the particular needs of your business.
