Can Custom ERP Software Inhibit Business Agility?
Posted Thursday, October 6, 2011 by Don Kapuscinski
Over 50% of companies say that ERP systems lock them into rigid business processes which are very difficult to change once implemented. This report shows that businesses become less agile because the cost and effort to reconfigure the existing system becomes too expensive. So how can you maintain your agility while benefitting from the capabilities of a custom ERP solution? Agility can mean a few different things for companies. First of all, companies need the ability to change and grow as customer demands change and grow. Secondly, companies need affordable options that don’t paint them into a corner, ultimately hurting their business and stalling their growth.
