Packaged or out of the box? Which ERP solution is best?

When it comes to business software, it's time to step outside the box.

When it comes to business software, it’s time to step outside the box.

Every business is unique. Businesses come in all shapes and sizes, from a plethora of industries, and serve an endless array of unique clientele. Since businesses are so prone to variation, many of the one-size-fits-all software applications simply don’t suffice for business needs. So, when it comes to enterprise resource planning (ERP), is it better to purchase packaged ERP or a customized solution? Here are some things to consider.

No two businesses are the same

When you’re purchasing a prepackaged ERP solution, it’s one that’s designed to cater to a variety of businesses. Similar to the one-size-fits-all hats, they never truly fit everyone. For some, it may fit loosely and others it may be too tight. With ERP, that problem is compounded. If your business is small, you may end up paying for more services than you need, and if your business is large, you may realize the packaged solution doesn’t provide everything you’re looking for.

With flexible ERP solutions, you can assemble a customized service package that fits your precise needs as a company, eliminating waste while conserving financial resources. It will be equipped with customizable tools and tailored functionality that conforms to your exact needs as a business, setting your company up for success.

You need a customized relational database

With a relational database, data structures are customized to the needs of your organization, and the design can be tweaked as changes in your business model occur. This will provide your business with enhanced flexibility, accessing a solution that can be tailored to the precise needs of your company.

Your business is constantly evolving

Prepackaged ERP solutions are incredibly restricted. Unfortunately, in the business world, there are no constants. Your business is always changing and evolving, growing and expanding, and perpetually adapting to external trends. You need a software solution that’s as flexible as your business and can be perpetually scaled to meet your growing needs. Cloud-based ERP is ideal for this aim. Unlike on-premises software, you don’t need to invest in new software and hardware as you scale your software solution. Instead, you can perpetually scale your software needs via the cloud, so your software application will continue to grow along with you.

Many businesses fall into the trap of relying on legacy software for much longer than needed, simply due to the fear of change. Implementing new software applications often produce the undesirable result of disturbing current businesses processes amid the rollout. However, this can all be avoided with a customized software solution that’s built for your business. The software can be designed to integrate with your current business processes, so as not to disrupt workflow upon deployment.

By investing in a prepackaged solution, you are binding yourself to a software application that may soon be outgrown or become irrelevant to your business needs. You need a software that provides the elasticity needed to adapt to your business model. At NexTec, our team will work alongside your business to assess your needs and design a solution that’s tailored to those needs, providing you with a custom-built software application that fully supports your business operations.

Microsoft Dynamics Training: So you get the best out of your Dynamics partner

By | ERP, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL | No Comments

10672265_l22If you have recently had a Microsoft Dynamics partner software installed into your home then know that it’s useless unless you get the Microsoft Dynamics training to go with it. You will have employees completely lost using the program and, as a result, it won’t be as effective if they were using it correctly and making the most out of it as they could be from the get go.

While some employers in the past have not wanted to pay the extra money to train their employees on the software or pay their employees for the time it takes to be trained, they’ve learned to regret it. They thought that the program would be installed and that their employees would just figure it out. However, that’s not the case and you can lose valuable customers this way. If your employees know how to use the software to their advantage, you are going to be like so many other companies who made the investment in the software and the training and are now thriving in the business world.

Microsoft CRM Software: Because you want to succeed and you want happy workers

Microsoft CRM software is ineffective if your employees don’t know how to use it. That doesn’t mean the software isn’t fantastic and hasn’t changed businesses from being a small business to a major money maker through this software program. It means that you wouldn’t give a sixteen-year-old the keys to the car without first teaching them the basics of how to drive it. You need the training for it to really make a difference.
