People who embrace change can still find themselves reluctant to move out of their comfort zone once in a while, even when they wholeheartedly acknowledge the fact that things have absolutely got to change before they fall apart. Some may be completely unaware that things are falling apart on them, and haven’t taken the time to self-evaluate, and others may have begun to recognize problems, but are unsure or even afraid of where to begin implementing a solution. Business systems are no exception to any of these scenarios.
Even the smallest businesses are complex, and have complex strategies and procedures in place to manage departments, projects, and transactions. You can only imagine how much more complicated those complexities get when it’s increased to corporate enterprise levels!
Whether or not you’re trying to implement, change up, or improve your business, here’s some questions that would be good for business owners, managers or team leads to consider:

A key goal of almost any business, big or small, is growth. Several factors play in to how successful companies are in meeting that goal, including front-end efforts such as sales staff, vendors, marketing plans and customer service. While having a strong operational front to promote, buy, and sell, it is equally if not more important that back-end efforts such as ERP systems remain strong and are poised for growth.
Having a growing business is a great problem to have, though. As a business owner, it is necessary to make sure that your system can handle some of the growing pains that accompany that success. Among many other reasons to look for a new ERP system, companies may find that their current system(s) in place behind the scenes is incapable with handling the growth that is needed to maintain and increase success. Software packages such as Intuit® QuickBooks™, Peachtree Accounting and Sage 50 offer inexpensive up-front purchases which provide easy to use functionality for basic transactions and month-end reports.
