Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) sits at the heart of organizational life. Finding the right software for your organization can allow you to successfully manage integrated business processes in real time. With robust ERP software, everything from accounting and procurement to risk management and compliance can be viewed and managed through a single integrated interface.
The comprehensive nature of ERP software can make searching for the best tool a big challenge for any organization. In order to find the right software, you’ll need to define your current processes as well as your pain points and strengths. You’ll also need to carefully map your goals for the future. In the process, you’ll have to consider any new software’s technical fit with your current infrastructure, necessary hardware upgrades, software maintenance, and an implementation plan – nevermind costs. It’s no wonder that getting started on an RFx can seem daunting!
Popcorn RFP’s signature ERP kernels are here to help. Specific prompts steer you towards the key decision points in ERP software procurement, so that you can hone in on the specifics and get to the best tool for you. While you may already have considered your needs in broad strokes, our ERP kernels ensure that you don’t miss the details and guarantee that you use the latest industry-specific language and terminology in your next RFx. Have a look at how we do it in practice.
With numerous ERP packages on the market, figuring out what processes your organization needs to automate and which software matches your needs is key. Packages are rarely one-size-fits-all, so our kernels remind you to consider what, if any, customization options you may need.
When considering ERP software options, it can be easy to lose track of the end user. No two software packages are alike when it comes to UI and UX interface. Our kernels prompt you to reflect on the relative tech-savviness of your prospective ERP software users so that the package you end up with is sufficiently user-friendly for your needs.
Implementing new software often requires support. Our ERP kernels ask you to think about whether you’d like to purchase any professional services as part of an ERP software package – including implementation assistance and ongoing support.
Finding the best ERP software for your organization can be far from straightforward. Factors like scalability, ease of implementation, security, ease of use across devices, and reporting options and metrics may all factor into your decision. Popcorn RFP’s kernels are written to ensure that you hone in on your specific needs, and end up with the right tool for you.
