ERP Software Implementation


What's the TEI of an ERP software implementation?

It's no doubt that the cost savings and business benefits are a big consideration when selecting a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. One of the best ways to show the value of implementing a new ERP solution is to calculate the Total Economic Impact (TEI). It also helps to justify the ERP investment by showing tangible value to executives and stakeholders. However, not every business has the resources to go into such detail before making an ERP investment.

As an ERP industry leader, Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a TEI study to help with your ERP selection decisions. In the report Forrester conducted interviews with seven Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance &  Supply Chain Management (Dynamics 365) customers. The company's industries were finance, manufacturing and retail organizations. These customers migrated from various legacy environments for many reasons mentioned in the report.

The businesses that were interviewed identified several key challenges with their legacy ERP environments that led them to invest in Dynamics 365. Do you relate with the challenges these organizations share? See below for a summary of the top three challenges download the report to learn more:
