ERP systems are integrated business applications that cover a broad range of end-to-end processes such as those found in finance, procurement, HR, distribution, manufacturing, service and the supply chain. They form the backbone of modern enterprises, which when implemented correctly, can optimise operations and increase employee productivity.

Despite organisations sinking a large amount of time, money and human resources into ERP projects, nearly 50% of implementations fail first time round. Last year the average cost per user for implementation alone was $7,200 USD. Adding this to licence fees, maintenance costs, management, support, and training, the total cost of ownership of an ERP system can be significant. It is therefore important for organisations to consider how they can take this investment as far as possible.
