ERP To-Do Checklist: 12 Things To Do Before You Write That BIG Check To A Vendor

A mid-market ERP solution purchase can be completed more quickly and successfully if you ask yourself and vendors the right questions.

The Inside-ERP To-Do Checklist is one decision tool you can use to discover what you need and what you need to learn more about. 

Topics include:
·         Top 12 things to ask before you write that BIG check to a vendor.
·         Who should be involved in the purchasing decision and implementation of an ERP system.
·         How to identify business needs and the ERP solution features that meet them.
·         How to conserve cash flow by buying only what you need first, then adding modules later.
·         Future needs to consider, I.E, training, support, software updates and more.

In Real Estate the key is: Location, location, location.  In Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions the key is: Questions, questions, questions. 

You are going to need to learn and ask more than 12 questions before you invest in a solution that has the capability to take your business to the next level, up or down.  The two page list from Inside-ERP is a good place to start.  A second step is to find an educated resource to help you navigate the process.
