For decades, ERP implementation in general, and more specifically ERP replacement, has been compared to brain surgery. You just don’t do it unless the patient is dying; “Rip and replace” was to be avoided at all costs.
But these perceptions are just as outdated as the legacy solutions to which they apply. Modern ERP solutions are now far more flexible and technology-enabled, provide many more features and functions, and are easier to install, implement and use. If you are a small distributor making do with something less than a complete solution, or a larger distributor relying on antiquated technology, now is the time to invest in a modern ERP platform that will allow you to succeed in today’s fast-moving, global, digital economy.
