ERP implementations in the South Asian countries, are comparatively different, harder and financially very expensive than the other parts of the worlds. This is because of different socio-economic conditions, working style of businesses, their operation methods and low currency comparative to international currencies. Most of the well renowned ERP solutions and their licenses are in foreign currencies such as Dollar, Pound or Sterling.
