Whether you are a first-time buyer of enterprise resource management (ERP) software, or a seasoned implementer, evaluating software can be a daunting and stressful task. The terminology associated with choosing a new platform-public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS-and the myriad of solution offerings-ERP, CRM, HCM-makes for a confusing alphabet soup for even the most experienced professionals.
However, the benefits of choosing the right solution are substantial, and when built properly, can enable businesses to:
- Create a happier working environment.
- Improve profit margins.
- Increase revenue.
