Is ERP Suitable Only For Large Scale Businesses?

When you think of buying a professional coffee brewing machine, many might ask whether its actually worth it to splurge so much money on a machine for your home as you will most likely make one or two coffees per day and whether it’s better to go into something less expensive and does a similar job although it could be less impressive. Depending on the need you have, your answer may vary; if you actually think that although you make few cups a day, you need that to taste really good or probably because you feel that it’s easier to offer anyone who walks in a coffee, the scale wouldn’t matter but in cases where you cannot customize it according to your requirements, there can actually be a little extra hanging out than the actual requirement.

Looking at a similar issue out of the business context, most small scale companies have the doubt on to whether these ERP cloud software and the traditional ERP system implementation should only be used by large scaled business or otherwise they will only cause a loss to their operations. Most businesses that adapt these different systems don’t reap benefits in the first two to three years but after that they will continue to get a much better return while most businesses remark to fail throughout incurring major losses.

The main reason why most incur failures in this is that they follow whatever the products they see other more established companies use and also gain the products offered by the same vendors but the problem is that you need to understand your requirement well enough to be able to purchase one for your company. I have seen even when it comes to supply chain software, most companies go ahead with similar systems and the problem is that sometimes you might not need the exact product they offer but might need something way simpler and less costly.

Imagine that you are a company operating within the island and the system you need can differ to the system that a firm that operates on a global scale require so if there are any additional components that might not be useful to your structure and tasks then you can always look into the customized version the vendors have to offer. Most ERP companies have customization and configuration teams that change them according to each firm, therefore they are not only useful for large scale businesses but even small scale firms can benefit if they choose the right product.
