ERP Systems: What to Expect in 2015

Time to say goodbye to 2014 — the perfect time to look back on the year’s accomplishments and set goals for the upcoming year. At Accountnet, it’s been our pleasure to assist our Microsoft Dynamics clients with getting the most out of your ERP systems. The New Year won’t change that, and we expect to do much more in the coming months as the ERP industry continues to mature.

A growing number of organizations managed successful ERP implementations last year, and there were a number of other positive trends, such as impressive software updates, the introduction of better business intelligence reporting tools, and exciting new advancements in mobility and cloud computing.

Here are five things we expect to see for ERP software in 2015:

  1. Growing adoption of business intelligence tools and mobile computing.  Companies that have already made an investment and want to make the most out of their ERP software will look to mobile tools and business intelligence software. Our clients understand that an ERP system doesn’t necessarily help them make better use of business data; they need robust, real-time reporting tools that support better decision-making among employees, managers and executives. The best business intelligence tools combine the familiarity of Excel with web and mobile capabilities, ensuring seamless back-and-forth flexibility from wherever your employees are, in whatever application they choose to use.
  1. An increase in the number of ERP systems on the market. Along with that will come a host of new ERP consultants and vendors, not all of whom will have the capabilities necessary for a successful ERP implementation for your company. Having more options is terrific, but it can make the ERP software and vendor selection process seem daunting. Accountnet has a great track record when it comes to finding the right fit for your business. Our clients benefit from our year’s of experience planning, deploying, integrating, customizing and training that’s required for to get a company up and running with ERP.
  1. More cloud/on-premises hybrid ERP implementations. For years companies had to choose between SaaS — or “cloud” — model) versus an on-premises software installation for their ERP initiatives. Microsoft Dynamics is offered in both flavors, and increasingly organizations are adopting both. Find out more by contacting us at Accountnet!
