Macola: The History of Macola ERP
03-30-2012 / By:
In the words of the great Sir Winston Churchill, "To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often."Changing your ERP system is not an easy commitment to make, although often a necessary one. A colleague of mine compares the process of ERP software replacement to open heart surgery. Nobody wants open heart surgery; however it is, sometimes necessary to survive. You wouldn't perform open heart surgery on yourself, so it is important to select a qualified surgeon to perform the task. Comparatively, ERP software implementation is no small task, so it is important to not only focus on the ERP software package that fits your requirements, but selecting an experienced and qualified implementation team to insure the success of the project. It is equally, or even more imperative, to consider the stability and future of the ERP software developer.
