Useful Infographic: What Stands in Your Way of Getting an ERP System?

I was just wandering through the web when I stumbled upon this great and creative infographic and I couldn’t help myself but share it with you guys! Basically it’s exactly what you need to show the next skeptic co- worker who thinks ERP is “unnecessary…”

This infographic, by SAP, uses a flow-chart that prevents you from ever saying “I don’t think I’ll implement an ERP system in my company” again. It starts by presenting the various challenges that might stand in your way, whether it is the fear of a complexed implementation process, the size of your company, or the belief that an ERP system is simply not necessary.

Then, for each of those “obstacles,” you get a proper answer in the form of an interesting fact. Think that ERP costs too much? You might be surprised to know that SaaS ERP’s total cost of ownership is low enough for 75% or organizations to consider it.

The chart then goes on to lead you to the proper solution for you, whether it is an on-premise ERP, Cloud ERP, or Data Prison.
