ERP Consultant Reviews: Getting the Best ERP Advice

ERP Consultant Reviews: Getting the Best ERP Advice

ERP consultant software advice As ERP consultants, it is our mission to keep up with available ERP solutions so we can help our clients find the best fit for their unique business requirements. Our clients who are reviewing ERP options turn to us to weed through all the ERP software options. In this modern information age, we enjoy the privilege of having access to virtually any piece of knowledge that we desire via the internet. However, when it comes to ERP software selection, this vast amount of information quickly turns into confusion. The main challenge with the internet is trusting the information and figuring out what is accurate information and what is misinformation. Over time as more and more users have come online, there  is an ever increasing amount of information on any given subject that tends to saturate if not overwhelm a person looking for a simple solution to a question or a problem.

Despite all the information available online, most clients shopping for ERP software tend to rely on the human connection not the internet for a big part of their decision making process. If you are in the market for ERP software, the internet is a great resource but you’ll be in good hands once you find an experienced and trusted ERP consultant to help with your evaluation. 

The internet is an excellent resource providing access to information and social connections and the freedom of expression. For someone looking into ERP software options, information online can be tainted with those providing the information placing spin on the knowledge they share usually leaning in one non-objective direction. The onus then shifts to the shopper of information, the knowledge seeker, to find sources of knowledge and solutions from those in our networks that we perceive as experts in their field and those that we can trust. Sometimes the best way to do that is to simply ask one of these people for some friendly advice. We have all had to call on friends, family, or colleagues to share their experiences in the solutions they have found for similar challenges.

So why should asking for help for your enterprise technology and inefficiency challenges in your organization be any different? One of the largest barriers for executives in taking on a project to improve a company’s ability to implement ERP software is an overload of information and misinformation, the perceived sheer scope and associated cost of technology, and will it provide a return on investment for the particular way they operate their enterprise at the end of the day. These are all valid questions and concerns. Try entering the search ERP into Google and see what happens. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could reach out to get some friendly, experienced, and unbiased advice to your questions regarding your business practices and how to solve your enterprise challenges to help you drive revenues and efficiencies forward?

  • Customer service or parts/service quality can be optimized.
  • Increasing  service revenue.
  • Reduce obsolescence costs of service parts through improved forecasting.

One of our key differentiators other than being around for the past 35 years is the experience and expertise our people bring to the table.

Two of our ESS mfg. consultants have earned the CFPIM designation, (Certified Fellowship in Production and Inventory Management) from APICS and are APICS Certified Instructors. Less than 3% of men and women who earn a CPIM designation worldwide qualify for the "Fellowship" designation. They regularly present at these meetings, as well as continue to lecture the accredited APICS courses at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, (BCIT).  The ESS Implementation Team is first and foremost focused on manufacturing, operations, inventory management and distribution, leveraging proven technology and processes to make our customers more competitive and profitable.
