ERP Systems (Enterprise Application Suite) help managers to control costs and eliminate losses

Bucharest, 24th June 2010 - Any real business needs a solution for business management. Especially in crisis periods, implementing an ERP solution helps to increase the efficiency of organizations, to costs reduction and eliminating losses.

But what should you take into account when you wish to implement an ERP solution?

Sorin Dimofte, Implementation Manager for SIVECO Applications 2011, within SIVECO Romania, provides us with 4 criteria to be observed in order to make the best choice.

The Solution. One has to analyze and evaluate the company's needs and objectives and set up the solutions able to meet them in the best manner.

The Supplier. One has to evaluate the supplier's expertise, the implementation he has done, as well as the results obtained. The flexibility and the capability to successfully complete IT projects are the main criteria for your choice.

Costs. One has to get a correct price/performance ratio. It is noteworthy remembering that not only price itself determines the project's costs, but also the cost of the organizational change (introducing IT brings a deep change into the procedures, flows, and even in the organizational culture), the final users' effort in assimilating the new working instrument, the management's effort for passing to running the business by means of the system etc.

The Duration. One has to agree with the supplier a reasonable deadline for implementation. Clear establishment of responsibilities during the project's period, both for the Supplier and for the Customer is recommended.

Lăcrămioara Bârseti, manager SIVECO Applications within SIVECO Romania, says: "The investment in solutions of Enterprise Application Suite type ensures increasing the performances of the activities through processes' optimization (for example, cash flow management, decreasing the production and the delivery times, inventory optimization, shortening the financial cycles), and at the same time, providing correct information to the decision makers. Practically, no real business can function without ERP".
