Posted on: January 29, 2019 | By: Guy Logan | ERP Selection, Microsoft Dynamics GP

An ERP system is a very viable investment for any organization; big or small. Deciding to implement an ERP system, like Microsoft Dynamics GP, can cultivate many questions for you. There are tons of different options and finding the right solution for your organization can be quite the process. Any company can benefit from an ERP system by providing your organization insight on future trends, streamlining your supply chain, and more! However, there are many myths revolving around ERP software and we’re going to debunk them, so you are confident in your decision to implement an ERP solution.

Myth #1: It’s too expensive…

Like said previously, there are many ERP implementation options—including solutions that are less pricey than others. Some ERP systems can be quite expensive, but depending on what your organization needs, there are options. Cloud ERP options are priced per user or monthly, therefore eliminating the initial larger installation payment that on-premises systems require.  The price of an ERP system depends on what your organization needs from the software.

Myth #2: My organization is too small…

With customizations and real-time data, ERP software can better help you make smarter business decisions and share important information with clients and coworkers quickly and efficiently. There are many ERP options, small or large, that can help your business grow and simplify your workday.

Myth #3: One ERP system fits every organization…

There are a many different options for your organization to choose from. Finding the best ERP software for you takes careful planning and analysis of price, effectiveness, and compatibility. Not every ERP system is the same, so choosing a partner like Logan Consulting to guide you in the right direction can make the process much simpler. For example, choosing between cloud ERP and on-premises ERP can be a difficult decision, but based on your company’s needs, one will benefit your organization more in the long run.

Myth #4: Implementation takes too long…

One size fits all definitely does not apply when talking about implementation time. When deciding to implement an ERP software, consulting a trusted ERP software partner helps your implementation process stay on track. Implementation time normally depends on the size of the organization as well as what the company exactly needs from the ERP software. The amount of time it takes to implement ERP varies completely on the organization and the choice of software.
