Emerging Businesses: Seek an ERP Solution that Preserves Your Competitive Edge
A prospect (whom we eventually won) recently asked me a very pointed question: the top 6 companies in my industry use SAP, tell me why I should not implement the same. I am sure lot of emerging businesses face this dilemma - should they implement what large companies use or should they look for a new generation system like Microsoft Dynamics AX with a potentially better fit?
Let me put forward my defense on why emerging businesses are different from their large brethren.
First, they are emerging. Their needs are different. Imagine a company with USD 100M turnover doubling to 200M in 2 years. Would their processes be the same when they were on 100M turnover? The answer is NO. They would need nimble and adaptive processes that can change with their growth.
