What is the best way to compare ERP systems?

Researching and selecting the right ERP platform for your business can feel like an overwhelming process. The products are complex and tend to offer similar features so it’s challenging to weigh one versus the next—let alone a long list of potential solutions. Plus, investing in a new platform is costly, and that makes the final decision and analysis that much more critical to get right.

We’re offering a free comparison checklist you can use to evaluate the merits of multiple ERP systems. The checklist is customizable: you can fill it out, placing priority on whatever features or benefits are most important to you, and then easily compare multiple companies.

5 Categories to Evaluate

The comparison checklist helps you stack ERP systems against each other and evaluate them in five key areas:

  1. Productivity: How will it increase your productivity?
  2. Functionality: What features does it offer?
  3. Technology: How does it leverage technology?
  4. Value: How does the product’s lifetime cost compare to what you’re getting?
  5. Risk: How does it minimize risk and facilitate security?

The checklist is built to clear up confusion by laying out the benefits under each of these categories in a clean, easy-to-read format. Acumatica’s benefits are already listed; you simply have to add the names of other companies to the appropriate column and check whatever benefits their ERP offers. This tool also allows you to personalize your evaluation by ranking the features that are a priority for your company’s current and future needs, so you can see which systems are a better fit.

Choosing a new platform is a big decision and one that shouldn’t be made lightly. We believe Acumatica’s Cloud ERP is a great choice. At the same time, we understand the importance of gathering all the information you can, pitting benefits against each other, and making a deeply informed decision. That’s exactly why we put the comparison checklist together.
