Guide to Selecting Process ERP Software

Starting with the basics, TEC’s latest blog post, Process ERP vs. Discrete ERP Differentiation, answers the often-asked question: What exactly is process ERP and how does it differ from discrete ERP?

Moving on to a sobering statistic, TEC’s research indicates that over 50 percent of process ERP implementations fail to meet functional or total cost expectations, or both. Why are so many projects running into trouble? There are three main problems, and you can find out how to prevent them in TEC’s article A Guide to Selecting Process Enterprise Resource Planning Software.

Total cost of ownership (TCO) of an ERP system is something you need to know as you formulate your strategies and make decisions on which vendor solution to implement. The Total Cost of ERP Ownership in Mid-sized Companies offers you an executive guide to ERP costs, as well as a detailed cost comparison of six of the most popular ERP vendors: Epicor, Infor, Lawson, Oracle, QAD, and SAP.

We finish our in-depth exploration of quote-to-order systems with The Essential Components of Quote-to-order Application Suites. As well, check out the second and final part of So, You’re Considering a Paperless Office.
