Making the most of a major investment such as an enterprise resource planning software involves a variety of different factors. Businesses need to make sure they’re putting the right amount of effort into pre-planning and creating a successful framework before a system is installed. The type of ERP system used also plays a part. Companies can maximize their potential for success by choosing a system that is easily adaptable and can be changed on an ongoing basis. Research from Aberdeen group showed that there’s no one clear-cut reason why manufacturers use ERP, so adaptability is a must.
A modular ERP platform such as Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides the flexibility that’s needed by so many different kinds of companies in the overall manufacturing field. By building off a strong software backbone with individual modules that add functionality, organizations can create a system that works specifically for them. CIO.com pointed out that businesses need to focus on essentials when constructing an ERP system. When a system like Dynamics NAV is used, companies can add in the most important parts first, then make continuing improvements and add the parts they want but don’t need right away.
