Which Aspects of Current ERP Systems Most Need Improvement?
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are ever-evolving, both to keep up with advances in technology and to adapt to changes in business practice. But before getting into the bells and whistles, we asked ERP experts which fundamental aspects of ERP software most need improvement.
We asked our group of experts to select the top three from a list that included:
- User experience and interface
- Flexibility (ability to change and modify)
- Scalability (ability to grow with business needs)
- Mobile device support
- Implementation processes
- Systems and data integration
Note that in the past, this type of list would often include software capabilities or “features and functions.” We dropped the features and functions option because current ERP systems are feature-rich and highly capable when it comes to things like processing sales orders or managing warehouse inventory. This question is trying to expose other aspects of ERP systems that often don’t get the attention they deserve.
