With the Summer Olympics in full swing, it’s easy to get inspired by the supreme athleticism and powerful positivity. Even if the media insists on focusing on Gabby Douglas’ hair or Ryan Lochte’s “mystery girl”! But all in all, the Olympics are a big deal.
Similar to the Olympics, your ERP Software should be a big deal too. Many organizations overlook answering the most important question before searching for the solution right for their business. You need to determine just how big your organization is, before deciding how big you need your ERP software to be. Some solutions, such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP can scale with you as you grow. But some solutions can stop you in your tracks. Even if you’re not sure of your growth (as I’m sure the Greeks didn’t expect the Olympics to take on like it did), you should still play it safe so you don’t have to pay for it later.
The Olympics also bring every country in the world together. Although they’re competing against each other in ever athletic form, they’re still creating connections that we all need. Your ERP software should connect your organization. Your departments probably won’t compete against each other, but if they can all use the same system, then you have a step ahead of the rest.
So as you cheer on the U.S. or any other country for that matter, think about how big of a deal your ERP software is for your business. GO USA!
