Choosing The Right ERP Software Platform

A lot of care and study shall be done before choosing the ERP platform because a wrong or incompatible platform may bring the performance down to dust of a capable ERP application. There is no point in hiring a racing car driver for faster transportation if your vehicle cannot move beyond 40 mph. Sometimes wrong selection of ERP platform has adverse effects of similar magnitude.

Companies look upon few important factors before choosing the platform for their ERP application. Speed is one of them, the platform for ERP should be able to comply with the speed of ERP application. Today companies thrive hard to meet the deadlines and efforts are made to avoid any loss due to delays, most of the ERP are capable of working in this direction if they are running on the right platform.

Internet feature shall be well supported by the ERP platform for optimum utilization of facilities provided in the ERP for e-commerce or for faster data transfer and communication. Lack of access to internet or slow speed can badly affect the benefits of capable ERP.

To make choosing of ERP platforms easy companies look upon the past performance of the ERP application with a particular platform. If any combination has been used before and it has worked well than it is sufficient to prove its worth. However the working model, the problem areas and business shall be considered before matching the suitability of the ERP and platform for own purpose.

Communication facilities provided by the platform are of utmost importance, any platform providing free flow of data through many channels will be handy for any organization. Apart from this ERP platform’s communication capabilities with other networks and platforms is also very important, a rigid platform may not let the user utilize the facilities of the ERP application to its optimum. Better, easier, faster and reliable communication and data transfer has been the biggest asset of all the ERP software, incapability or rigidity of the platform may scratch away the biggest benefit and turn the whole expense and effort into loose mud.

Error handling abilities of the ERP platform is also an important aspect that should be analyzed before choosing it. ERP software is a set complex programs and modules in itself, there are many chances not only at the deployment stage but later too for any error arising due to incompatibility or part malfunctioning. Advanced error handling features of the platform and easy troubleshooting methods will surely help in smooth running of application and lesser data corruption.

While choosing ERP platform companies rely on the platforms those are going to stay in the market and association will be of long term. Like ERP software it is not possible to change the platform either at the drop of a hat. Its compliance with other applications running in the organization shall also be considered as these small applications will remain important for the working of the enterprise even after the deployment and functioning of ERP. It may not be possible to find ERP platform satisfying all the criteria but selection of the platform on the basis of these points and in accordance with the need and the size of the company will help to make a better decision.
