4 tips for finding the right ERP system!

May 21st, 2024

Choosing the best ERP system for your business can be challenging. With so many different software and vendors to choose from, it can feel like navigating through a jungle. However, an effective ERP system is crucial for success in today’s modern business climate. Here are some simple tips for choosing the right ERP system for your business!

Right facing arrow Continue reading

1. Define business needs and goals

To find the best ERP system for your business, it’s important to start by defining your specific business needs and goals. Think of this as the foundation for your journey to implementing a fully functional ERP system. By clearly defining what you need and what goals you have from the outset, you can ensure that every step in the process contributes to achieving these goals effectively.

Make sure these needs and goals are included in every part of the ERP system selection process – from comparing different options to customizing and integrating the chosen solution into your existing structure. By keeping your needs and goals in mind throughout the process, you can ensure that the chosen ERP system not only meets your current requirements but also supports your long-term goals.

2. Conduct a thorough analysis of your business processes to understand exactly what you need from an ERP system

Before deciding on an ERP system, take a close look at how your business processes work. It’s important to understand what you need from the system to best fit your needs. Consider how your daily work looks and how it may change in the future. Give each department the opportunity to tell what they wish for from the new system. Perhaps there are manual processes that can be automated or ways to reduce the margin of error in data management. By examining the company closely and documenting your needs and desires, you save both time and money in the long run.

3. Make a list of the features you want your new system to include and prioritize the features that are most important to the business

Once you have clarified what you want to achieve with your system, it is important to clearly write down and communicate which specific features your company needs the system to solve. It is also important to clearly document which features are most important and therefore should be prioritized. This will also save you both time and money!

4. Request demonstrations and test drives to see how the systems work in practice

To get a better feel for how different systems work in practice, it’s a good idea to request demonstrations and test drives. This way, you can see the systems in action and assess how they fit your needs. It also gives you the opportunity to work with the system and discover its user-friendliness and functionality.

By following these steps, you can make an informed decision when choosing an ERP system and find the one that best suits your business!

How an ERP system benefits your business!

How to Choose the Right Business Solution?

May 10th, 2024

Choosing a business solution is both an important and big decision, but it can also feel difficult to know what suits you. Here are 6 tips to consider when selecting a business solution!

Right facing arrow Continue reading
Do you find that data is collected in various parts of the organization without any clear structure? Is it difficult to find statistics and reports for important decisions? Is a lot of time spent chasing information from employees? These are clear signs that you are not working with the right business solution!

An optimal business solution is a fundamental pillar for your business to grow and develop. The right business solution not only provides an overview of the organization but also streamlines your workflow by automating unnecessary routines, creating meaningful decision-making bases, improving customer management, and fostering a more sustainable work method.

Choosing a business solution is both an important and big decision, but it can also feel difficult to know what suits you. Here are 6 tips to consider when selecting a business solution!

  1. What are your business’s specific needs?

    It may seem obvious, but the first and most important step to finding the right business solution is to figure out what you actually need! The most efficient way to map out your needs is through an analysis of your business. What works well, what doesn’t work as well, what challenges do you face, and what problems do you want your business system to solve?

    The clearer the picture you have of your needs, the easier it will be to find what’s right for you!

  2. Involve your employees!

    Switching to or acquiring a new business system is a significant decision that leads to major changes for the entire organization, so it’s important to involve your employees in the process. When it’s time to start thinking about what you want your business solution to do for you, a discussion among employees is a good start. This way, you can get to the bottom of what different parts of the organization think and feel.

    Remember, no one knows the shortcomings of your current system better than its users!

  3. Turn your needs into features!

    Now that you have a clear understanding of your needs, it’s important to translate these into actual features in a business system! What do you want your business system to include to meet the needs you’ve identified?

    Set expectations for what you want from your business solution!

  4. A cloud-based business solution?
    Another tip for choosing the right business solution is to consider whether you want a cloud-based system. There are several advantages to using a cloud-based business solution, such as the ability to access the system from various devices no matter where you are.

  5. What do you think the future will look like?
    The right business solution is an investment that should benefit you today and in the future. Therefore, it’s also important to consider your business’s potential for growth with a business solution, or if the system lacks the capacity to match your development.

    The right business solution should contribute to your development, not hinder it!

  6. Talk to us!
    Our final tip is to talk to us! We understand that choosing the right business system can be tricky, but we are here to help you find the right solution in the jungle of options. We have experience helping companies find the right solution, big and small, regardless of industry.

Move Your Business to the Cloud

May 2nd, 2024

The benefits of moving your business solution to the cloud are numerous and worth reiterating periodically if you’re considering switching to an online business solution.

Right facing arrow Continue reading

With our Business Central Start, you can quickly get up and running in the cloud.

A cloud solution allows you to more easily create a system that suits your needs.

There are many advantages to choosing a cloud-based business solution, and it is worth repeating them regularly. In the cloud, you have the opportunity to scale your business solution more easily and to adapt it cost-effectively according to your needs. You can smartly add or remove functionality, users, and more. For instance, if you need to…

  • Report time – add a time reporting app.
  • Follow up – add an app like Power BI for support in follow-up.
  • Recurring billing – add a contract billing app.

And so on.

Save money and time with automatic upgrades.

With an online business solution, you will always be updated with the latest version, meaning you never get stuck in an old version. Your business solution is upgraded automatically twice a year at no extra cost, saving you both money and time. This means you get all the new improved features with each version and always have the latest on the market.

Concerned about security? The safest place for your business is in the cloud. By choosing Microsoft’s cloud products, you can trust that resources are dedicated 24/7 to maintaining the highest possible IT security for you.

Get a Complete Solution in the Cloud

Another advantage if you choose Microsoft’s cloud application Business Central is that it is part of Dynamics 365 and thus shares the same database with many other smart apps. You then connect your ERP system with apps for CRM, marketing, customer service, or follow-up, and information is synced between the applications. Smart AI technology is also built into the systems.

It doesn’t matter if you have a small or large company, the cloud is suitable for everyone. Everyone can take their business to the cloud. If you are currently using an old version of NAV or Business Central on-prem, we are experts at moving you to the cloud. We have all the tools to help you, and we have done it many times before with our clients.
