Most businesses today are moving in the direction of using ERPs to streamline their backed processes as opposed to using manual procedures and legacy applications, these solutions are undoubtedly efficient and cost-effective. The Enterprise Resource Planning Program (ERP) is a system of integrated apps designed to automate various office operations/departments, including product planning, manufacturing, sales, development, and marketing into a single database.
While deciding on the ERP system for adoption, you would need to choose the most reliable one as far as your business processes and needs are concerned.
There are two kinds of ERP solutions:
Off the Shelf Solutions:
These include systems that are easy to implement based on the fact that they are developed out of the experiences of other companies (or user groups) other than yours. Upon discussing how each of such companies makes the best use of the system, you get the information regarding the adoption of the system that is best for you.
Custom ERP Software
Each feature of the application is developed based on the unique requirements of your company. Another benefit of going for a customised solution is that you can enhance it’s features as your business grows or changes direction.
Some Benefits of Opting for Customised ERP Solutions
There is a high chance that a company will be able to meet the requirements of users when it goes for the customization of ERP rather than a generic system. This is because, in spite of high time consumption and upfront costs to initiate the system, you can always start small and add the most essential layers to kick off and target the software that is ideal and well customized to your business needs and preferences. Additionally, this technique also helps to manage the development budget more effectively. In terms of future technological or business changes, the customized ERP systems are very flexible
The software has been designed to match your business processes instead of fitting the business somehow into it. The best example of this approach is Tesla, who evaluates all the pros, cons, and risks carefully and opted for custom ERP development by keeping in mind the above-mentioned benefits. Jay Vijayan, Tesla CIO calculated the SAP implementation costs in “millions of dollars” and a year to perform all needed integrations. Tesla was able to achieve the same functionality within 4 months at a much lower budget. This helped them to get rid of the third-party vendor and Enterprise Resource Planning system that is customized to establish the internal business and manufacturing processes.
What sort of Investment Is Needed to Build Custom ERP Software?
The cost of the development entirely depends on what you need, the number of users, and system complexity.
Since the ERP services are customized completely based on your requirement, to attain a high-quality system that exercises around the future changes easily, even if it is a first-time project, you need an experienced and professional team. They need to get a full understanding of your business operations and what the challenges are to provide the best solution.
Customised solutions can save companies a huge amount of money in the long run. Almost every company strives towards continual business growth including the number of employees, locations, and field force. The majority of the time you have to pay license fees for every user, which can turn out to be quite costly and ongoing support incurs additional charges.
