Don’t Let Your Microsoft Dynamics ERP Solution Fall Short: 5 Tips for a Successful Implementation
Based on an unscientific poll on my blog, ERP system utilization rates seem to reflect a disappointing trend that I have observed anecdotally for years.
When asked "How much of your ERP system does your company use?", 56% of the vote indicates 30-40%, 21% of the vote indicates 50-60%, and the remainder indicates 70-80%. If you weight these results, the average is less than 50% - a result that would not surprise many ERP consultants and VARs, whether or not they'd like to admit it. (Note: results of the poll are incomplete at this point as there is still about a week left before the poll closes. Please go to the blog and register your vote.)
Why is it that the average company responding indicates that they use less than half the functionality of their system?
