Last month, our blog discussed 4 signs that it is time to upgrade your ERP software. Still not convinced you need to upgrade? Here are 4 MORE signs it may be time to replace your current ERP system:
1. You Can’t Operate as a Whole
ERP systems allow your business to function as one unit by sharing departmental data across the entire company. This collection and organization of information makes it easier to make decisions based on quality data. Without operating as a whole, you risk duplicate work, as well as lack the ‘big picture’ mindset when making company decisions.
2. Inability to Integrate
Does your ERP software integrate with other systems and processes already in place? You should not have to utilize one software for some of your business functions and another for the rest of your operations. A proper, up-to-date ERP system allows you to integrate all aspects of your business into one system, improving your operational efficiency.
3. You Are Not Utilizing the Cloud
Utilizing a cloud-based ERP system includes benefits such as accessibility and real-time updates. With no need to install physical hardware, the ERP system can be accessed from anywhere with internet capabilities. In addition, real-time updates typically lead to lower maintenance costs, as your ERP software is always the most current version available. This gives you the latest features, allowing your company to consistently benefit from the newest ERP technology.
4. It Won’t Scale With You
If your business is growing and changing quicker than your software can keep up with, it’s time for a new ERP system. Old systems hold your business back, limiting the growth a business can achieve year after year. Updated ERP systems have the ability to scale with you, supporting your business, not holding it back.
