How To Evaluate ERP Vendors
Selecting software for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the prelude to a long-term and very expensive commitment. Doing the right homework is essential to pointing your organization in the right direction. Before looking at technology, look at your business requirements and, more importantly, your business problems. Define your business processes. For each process, develop a list of detailed requirements for data, authorizations, edits, security and interactions with other functions. ERP means it is a total Enterprise Resource - not just one functional area like Finance, or Payroll.
