If your business has outgrown Quickbooks and you are ready to investigate a full-service ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution, Congratulations!
But as you investigate the various ERP solutions in an attempt to determine which will best suit your growing business, one of your major considerations will be the cost. What will be the total cost of owning and operating the solution?
You might have noticed how difficult it is to pin down a quote for ERP software. When you buy fruit, the per pound price is stated, and simple math brings you to your total. When you buy appliances, you’ll see the sticker price and any applicable discounts. It’s easy to figure out what you’ll pay. But when it comes to ERP software, it’s a bit more complicated.
True, you can often get the price for an out-of-the-box ERP software solution. But what about implementation and ongoing costs? These will vary by business. The more customized and complex your system has to be to meet your needs, the more difficult it can be to get a solid price quote up front.
How do you proceed if one important aspect, the cost, is missing from your list of pros and cons? If you’re budgeting for ERP software, you need the numbers to work with. You need a budgeting estimate before you even contact a sales rep.
Getting you a working quote is exactly what our Quick Quote Wizard was designed for.
Once you have chosen the product that will fit your needs, you’ll want to know what it will cost you for implementation, support, and ongoing licensing.
With the ERP Software Blog’s Quick Quote Price Wizard, you can get a free, instant estimate of what it will cost you to implement Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, or Microsoft Dynamics 365.
How the Quick Quote Wizard works:
A few quick questions
You’ll find the Quick Quote tool on the ERP Software Blog. Look for the orange bar labeled “Request an Instant Dynamics ERP Quote” on the right-hand side of each page. Click to go to the Quick Quote form, where you can enter some basic information about what you need. Do you prefer on-premises or Cloud hosted ERP? What amount of support and training will you require from a Microsoft Partner? How many employees will be using the ERP solution, and how many of them will be full users vs. limited users? The Quick Quote Wizard guides you through the questions. Then just add an email address where you can be contacted.
Submit your answers, and automatically you’ll get a non-binding quick quote (useful for budgeting and presentation purposes) sent to your email inbox. Included will be the name of just one of our expert Microsoft Dynamics ERP partners in your area who will field any questions you might have and offer to work with you on the implementation. Of course, you can choose to work with any partner or none; the name and the non-binding estimate are provided as a convenience to our readers.
