19/02/2016 - Remko Gaastra

New ERP software brings new possibilities and opportunities. But it also entails great risks. I have listed the seven biggest risks according to entrepreneurs when moving to new ERP software. It is useful to know the risks, because then you will be better able to prevent your ERP implementation from failure. 1) Are my expectations realistic? It is not always clear what new ERP software is going to bring. Not even after attending an extensive demo of the software.
