In your company there is vital business information for its development, to which you want to have access securely and quickly, which you will achieve by maintaining a database that you manage efficiently through an ERP.
In spite of all the benefits that an ERP will bring to your company, the more customized it is, the higher the costs you will have to spend to keep it running.
Following this order of ideas, it is appropriate to consider the disadvantages that could be associated with the implementation of an ERP, since precisely the preparation of your business processes for coupling it to the automated system is already a negative factor, since it is not a quick change, but in many cases requires adaptation of infrastructure or specialization of some employees in the management of digital tools.
In reality, these should not be considered disadvantages but rather limitations, since to evolve it is essential to make sacrifices and take risks. Therefore, if you want to acquire an ERP suitable for your company, you must make an investment and have the ability to maintain it over time.
Additionally, you should consider that the more customized the ERP system you choose for your business, the higher the acquisition and maintenance costs will be, but this investment will be justified when you begin to experience an improvement in the internal processes of your company.
Over time you will begin to reduce costs, reduce the time required in production and distribution chains, improve communication with your customers and be able to closely manage your image in the commercial world, evaluating the preference of your products over those of your competitors.
