An enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is crucial for any modern organization that wants to streamline business processes, improve employee productivity, and maximizes their bottom line. But setting up ERP software is a major undertaking, and there are often many questions that arise from executives who want to ensure they get the highest ROI possible for their investment.

ERP Implementation Time Depends on Your Business

One of the most common inquiries managers ask about is the time it takes to implement ERP software. There is no cut-and-dry answer. It all depends on your business. If for example, you need multiple customizations, resources are lacking, or if your organization requires several modules, your ERP solution will take more time to implement.

Opting for Cloud ERP Software Compared to an On-Site Solution

If you are thinking about going with a cloud-based ERP solution, there is good news. Because an on-site ERP system requires the acquisition and set-up of servers and computers, it can take much longer to implement. Alternatively, cloud ERP software is already accessible from nearly any internet-connected device. It doesn’t necessitate the purchase and configuration of hardware to work. That means quicker implementation.
