Is Your ERP System Falling Short?

In today's competitive market, businesses are living in a constant state of change, especially in a services sector that has to contend with a more fluid "people resource" factor.

Yet most installed enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions are falling short.

Why are nearly half of all businesses essentially blowing their annual ERP budgets to support change? And what are software vendors doing about it?

While we're on the subject, what make "ERP for services" different from solutions known as "PPM for PSA"? And which is best for your organization?

Can you really grow profitably while still providing clients with the services and project pricing they demand? Is there such a thing as taking control?

Maybe. Maybe not.
