Tips for choosing the right ERP system

We list some things to consider when choosing the best ERP system for your business


Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP, usually refers to a suite of software tools available for managing a whole range of daily business tasks.

An ERP system typically integrates a number of applications for use across the business into one platform. This can include tasks such as accounting, project management, and supply chain operations.

A complete ERP suite also tends to include performance management software which is built in to help plan, budget and predict the overall financial results of an organisation.

Organisations big and small rely on ERP systems to help manage day-to-day activities and operations while also minimising the use of too many different software packages and databases.

With many ERP vendors in the market today, choosing the right one for your business can be challenging. Computerworld UK has some tips to help you make the right choice.
