How to choose the right ERP for your Business
Making the right choice can save you cost, time and effort and avoid disruption in business.

It is not necessary that the most expensive brand will work for your business.

It is also not necessary that the least expensive ERP Software will work for your business.

Enterprise Resource Planning if done properly is the key to the success of a Business Enterprise.

Any ERP Software particularly for Apparel Business, should be able to integrate information not only across departments but also across locations as well as across processes.

The variables in the Apparel industry are very high. Hence any ERP Software for this industry should be able to capture information and classify the same into meaningful MIS Reports which would help the management and the respective departments to identify bottle necks in order to streamline the flow of information and work.

You have to do a due diligence process as follows :

Initial demo to the stake holders / process owners / IT Team. It is very important that all these persons have to be involved in the initial demo to shortlist what might be the right ERP Solution for their business.

If all these persons are not involved in the short listing process, it is quite likely there could be a misguidance on the choice because of bias towards brand, cost, insufficient understanding of the process etc.

A wrong choice could mean : ERP Software not working for your business, having invested, you would take time to see ultimately whether this ERP Software would work, which could mean a good two years, by that time your business conditions would have changed a lot, you have to go through the selection process again, the business would have suffered a lot due to lack of controls...

All this would happen if the right people are not involved in the decision making - choice of software.

Next a trial run should be done with the ERP Software products shortlisted to feed in a complete set of data for at least one complex order which was recently executed and see how the ERP Software is handling Data Entry as well as Reporting.

By this time it would be very clear which ERP Solution would be the right choice for your business.

Just to make sure you can ask for references and check out how the ERP Software is working for the referred clients.

Now you would clearly know which ERP software is best for your business (maybe with a little bit of customization) or no ERP Software is suitable for your business and hence you have look at the option of customized software development.
