Choosing the Right ERP
for Your Business

Distribution has always been about making sure that customers get the right products and services they need when they need them.

But as competition intensifies and customers expect more, distributors must invest in increasingly powerful technologies to meet market demands and offer a differentiated value proposition.  

For most distributors, an ERP conversion is one of the most important and difficult projects they will ever tackle. It’s essential to pick the best solution for your company. This involves correctly establishing requirements, properly configuring the system and converting to the new platform.

It’s complex and can be risky, but if it is done well, you’ll reap the rewards long into the future. 

Where should you start?

We spoke with leaders in the industry about selecting and implementing ERP solutions for their businesses. They shared the good, the bad and the ugly – with the goal of helping you benefit from the lessons learned along the way.
