You must understand the required functionality in a business. Also, you need to consider current as well as expected requirements and challenges so that you can understand the right tools, functions, and process upgrades before choosing an ERP.
In this, you need to clarify your system interface requirements and how your ERP will interact with other systems. In most cases, businesses run on more than one business solution. So, you need to find out whether your ERP is flexible enough to integrate with other systems or not.
Reporting keeps the business owner and decision makers informed about what's running in the business or not. So, you need to find out your specific reporting requirements, the way you are going to understand them, and the kind of visualisation you prefer.
Currently, you must be using a legacy ERP to manage your day-to-day business operations. So, be specific with the amount of data you want to migrate to the new system. Because data reflects the amount of servers you are going to consume, more data equals a high server cost.
You need to calculate and understand the intensity of the operations you are going to run in your business. Once you understand, you will be able to calculate the estimated amount of performance requirements with an ERP solution.
In the era of frequent cyberattacks, you must be concerned about your precious data. The ERP system is the one that will process and store all your data. So, understand your security requirements properly and choose the server provider more precisely.
Your chosen ERP system must align with government compliance to eliminate the chances of any policy violation.
