In a fast-moving, constantly changing global economy opportunities wait for no one. Agility, speed and flexibility are essential in getting operations up and running fast. To compete today, companies need to be agile to meet changing customer demands and drive growth which requires real-time data, something traditional ERP systems cannot accommodate. Many organizations have been reluctant to upgrade and now many are having to face it. SAP announced late 2019 that starting at the end of 2025, it will suspend maintenance of its business suite applications as their clients move to cloud-based SAP S/4 HANA.

ERP Costs

 When selecting an ERP there are many variables at play when selecting a system. It can be hard to find answers to the important questions you may have about ERP costs. Most ERP solutions are closed source, and customers can’t access the source code. ERP solutions that are proprietary tend to have higher costs.

Axelor ERP is at this time is the most robust full suite open source ERP software available in the market. With Axelor ERP you also do not have to pay a licensing fee to access its source code. Thus enabling the benefit for a long term solution because your organization will have access to all the code enabling its evolution.

The cost of implementing an ERP varies greatly depending on the type of business, country, etc. Here is an estimation of the cost annually by business size:

  • Small businesses: $10,000 – $150,000
  • Mid-sized businesses: $150,000 – $500,000
  • Large enterprises: $1 million – $10+ million

Axelor ERP runs on Linux, OSX, or Windows. Built with open source technologies and can be installed with MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgresSQL. Runs on Angular.js, JBoss, Apache Tomcat, and other open source technologies.

Most ERP systems are priced on a per-user basis. You can roughly expect to pay anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 per concurrent user. The number of users and the functions which are included are factors that affect the price.  That monthly cost per user most ERP companies offer may not include the base line licensing costs, per module cost, or support. With Fastcomcorp Axelor ERP implementations, training, maintenance, infrastructure, upgrades, and support, costs are strait forward.

ERP Trends

These five trends are fundamentally important. Together they can enable you to bring about change both in your technology and your business. Each organization’s path to creating flexibility at the heart of their business may differ.

Partner with Service Providers Providing Non-Traditional Services for the Cloud

Find partners that differentiate by reimagining services delivery models, being technology agnostic, and specializing in your business. The cloud is also the only place where enough CPU power and memory can be aggregated for the number crunching and big data needed for artificial intelligence. The focus of the ERP project should be on the processes within finance, procurement and scheduling so that your company can take advantage of AI, machine learning and automation. You also need to make sure that your partner also understands compliance laws and can help you protect your ERP from cyber-attacks.  There are also other risks that are becoming more prevalent, such as money laundering, and companies are starting to understand that IT investments alone will not protect them from all risks.

Personalize Your ERP

Companies today are making sure that the user experience (UX) is seamless across channels and platforms. ERP solutions can be complex. A simple user experience can eliminate that complexity by offering empowering tools that enable users to get to where they need to get to at the exact moment when they want to go there. Your employees need to derive some form of pleasure out of using the system. That can come from accomplishing a productive task but there is likely some less tangible joy that can come from accomplishing that task in a simple elegant way. The best ERP system in the world is irrelevant if the users are faced with a barrier to information consumption.

Intelligence Investments

ERP architectures are evolving to support real-time responses because agile businesses are demanding it because it enables their business to extend at scale and in real-time. Analytics and algorithms aligned with processes are playing a significant role in ERP: forecasting capabilities. With AI integrations a business can make predictions that will improve their ability to forecast for upcoming periods. Also enable them to detect seasonality, making recommendations about increasing or decreasing production accordingly.

By investing in artificial intelligence you can enable the identification of any processes or practices that are inefficient, mechanically or otherwise, and aid in a viable solution that will save resources for your company. You can as well enhance the customer service experience for your customers giving your agents the tools and the right information to help your customers.

Insight Amplification

Agile companies of today are transiting or have transitioned their data from being in data traps to being data progressive. Enabling their ERP’s and others system to gain deeper intelligence from difference sources into one combined source of high quality data that can deliver a competitive advantage.

This trend gives one better oversight over things such as the supply chain, shipping partners, and appliance performance, and it also provides more data to your overall data pool for better overall decision making. Companies that are able to harness this data and to use it in conjunction with new data sources will be better able to hold retain and serve customers, and to react faster, guiding their business through improved insights to be more competitive, and to develop new business models.

ERP Buyers are Prioritizing Functionality

ERP buyers are looking for better functionality, but they can’t usually find it in one system. Functionality has always been a priority for ERP buyers, but over the past few years many companies adopted models for ease of use, flexibility, and low costs.

The primary challenge that cloud accounting users are facing is the lack of robust features designed for their needs and processes. While adopting the cloud delivery model allows them to save money, many have realize that they might need to switch again, this time to a more robust solution. Fastcomcorp like many other ERP vendors understands that there is no one-size-fits-all in ERP software.
