There are many aspects of distribution businesses that are similar to other distribution companies, as well as their own unique ways of doing business. In order to facilitate your business processes, it is crucial to choose the right ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software solution. In what ways can you choose the best custom ERP software for distribution? Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Is the ERP solution customizable?
The best custom ERP software should be easy to customize according to your reporting and programming preferences. When your team can customize your ERP solution as a default, they’ll save time and effort. The easier it is for your team to operate, the more value you’ll see.
Does the ERP solution come with proactive support?
Even with the best software and installation, issues will arise over time. These issues may be unexpected, such as an electrical surge or incoming viruses. When you need your ERP partner most, it may not be during regular service calls, but you’ll also want proactive support.
In order to make sure your ERP software is configured correctly, your ERP partner should ensure it is properly configured. Your system will be able to keep up with demand or expansion if it is regularly monitored, as well as your changing processes and requirements.
Get your partner’s assurance that this support will be available both remotely and on-site if you need it, so that your use of the ERP solution is relatively worry-free.
Can the ERP solution support specialty applications?
You can optimize your ERP solution with these and other available applications such as SalesPad, eOne Smart Connect, and ReQlogic. ERP partners should be knowledgeable about third-party solutions and can help you choose the ones that best complement your business needs.
