TEC 2014 ERP for Midsize Manufacturers Buyer's Guide


It’s hard to imagine a modern manufacturing business operating without the use of some kind of ERP software that facilitates the management of day-to-day production, and financial, logistical, and other operations. In fact, many manufacturing companies have undergone ERP selection and implementation processes not just once but several times already in their existence.

As one of the largest segments of manufacturing companies, midsize manufacturers have the largest choice of available ERP software to choose from. Technology is also constantly evolving, bringing plenty of new features and capabilities every year. Yet, it is becoming increasingly difficult to break through not only the abundance of technologies, concepts, and marketing terms, but also the hype associated with business software.

This purpose of this buyer’s guide is to provide readers more clarity regarding the ERP market for medium-sized manufacturing companies, its specifics and overall trends, as well as provide an overview of the major players and their solutions, which is particularly useful for those organizations that are in the early stages of the software assessment or those companies looking to select software systems at some point in their near future.

The guide also includes a special report on cloud ERP solutions. Looking at the cloud argument, the sides of both cloud enthusiasts and those who aren’t yet convinced are explored, and more in-depth analysis and an unbiased overview of cloud, and on-premise ERP alternatives are given with consideration for the various manufacturing ERP deployment options.

ERP for Midsize Manufacturers



Midsize manufacturing organizations constitute a unique segment of companies. They occupy a particular niche in the business world – mature and large enough to exploit advanced management concepts and engineering technologies, yet small enough to stay close to customers and flexible enough to rapidly adjust products and business processes to changing environments.

This group of manufacturers is certainly in the sights of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software vendors as their next target market, after global multinational corporations.

However, the ERP selection process is a top concern for medium-sized manufacturers. With the enormous quantity and variety of marketing materials produced by ERP vendors in order to persuade organizations to make the “right” ERP choice, the end result is that the overall selection process for many manufacturers isn’t clear and often requires systematization and clarification.

It is not simply a question of which two of three ERP systems to put at the top of one’s short list, as the selection process is typically much more complicated. In particular, there are parallel challenges of developing one’s own ERP paradigm and whether to accept long-term strategies regarding cloud or traditional on premise-roadmaps, as well as many lower-priority issues.

With all of these factors to take into account, selecting an ERP solution for midsize manufacturing businesses becomes a question of choosing a way of business evolution for the years to come. The ERP decision is imperative for most companies, and with this buyer’s guide, TEC’s goal is to provide some guidance to manufacturers seeking to implement a new ERP solution or replace or upgrade an existing solution, and to draw a picture of the ERP market as a whole.
