ERP Market Today
37% of companies are in the process of selecting a new cloud ERP system or will start within two years.
ERP systems are struggling to keep up with the speed of change. Traditional, on-premise ERP systems are difficult and costly to upgrade – and they often lack the modern user interfaces, mobile access and analytics of today’s business systems.
Extending ERP Applications Is Easier Than You Think
Cloud ERP solutions today are providing extensibility that allows businesses immediate access to their marketplace where they can download applications unique to their specific sector or vertical. The business often must figure out when to extend the application and when to use out-of-the-box functionality. Where possible, organizations should challenge themselves to stay within core functionality and business processes.
Cloud ERP Can Deliver Immediate Return on Investment
ERP software developed to address a specific industry or business process are helping deliver cutting-edge best practices at a faster rate and at a better price point because they are not addressing the full backbone of your business. Though these vendors don’t offer the full end-to-end ERP footprint, niche offerings allow unique options for businesses in industries like oil and gas, healthcare and others to consider when evaluating ERP digital transformation.

In fact, we have worked with virtually every vendor and integrator in the technology space.
