Epicor ERP: 20 Things You Can Expect from an Upgrade
It’s that time. Your feeling the pain of an outdated ERP system, one that’s too slow and unable to provide you with the kind of information you need; an ERP system that keeps you from doing business the way you think business should be done. It’s frustrating not only for you and your employees, but also for others interacting with your company during an age where technology provides quick answers to most anything.
Is this you? What’s the impact?
- Inefficient? Customer satisfaction levels are at risk.
- Reactive? Your competitive edge could be at risk.
- Costly? Your bottom line is impacted.
ERP is the backbone of a business, and if your ERP is not empowering your employees and keeping your business headed in the right direction, then your ERP system is not working for you, but rather against you. Inefficiencies, bad customer service, inaccurate or delayed decisions, manufacturing downtime and more are costing you money and risking your customer retention.
Yes, an ERP system upgrade or a new ERP system can be expensive, but if your existing system is slowing you down, then the expense should be considered as the Return on Investment (ROI) may be sooner than you’d expect.
