Cheat Sheet for Reading Between the Lines of ERP Software Quotes


Email | Print

Shopping for ERP software can be a long and arduous process. To find the system that will work for your business, you must weed out the many options that do not even come close. Many vendors will show off impressive-looking software, but only a few will be worth your time. Those few may offer you quotes that estimate how much you will spend on their software. The key to a successful ERP purchase is knowing how to read between the lines of those quotes.

The cost of licensing ERP software is only one of the expenses a new system will bring with it. To gauge how much you will actually spend, you need to consider the total cost of software implementation. These costs may include but are not limited to software (licensing fees, enhancement fees, and add-on product fees), services (implementation, data conversion, integration, customization, training, and support), and hardware.

If this is your first time attempting to purchase ERP software, it may seem like a daunting to task to glean all of the above information from a quote or even go beyond the quote to ask the hard questions to a vendor. So we created a white paper that may help shed some light on ERP software implementation costs.

The white paper, "30 Questions Every CFO Must Ask About the Cost of Accounting Software," is a free document that offers a plethora of helpful information about ERP purchasing decisions and many of the questions ERP vendors may not answer unless you know to ask them. Regarding cost, the white paper details each type of expense and gives prospective buyers hints for saving money and cutting unnecessary costs. Think of it as a cheat sheet for ERP buyers.
