A startup business owner can be so overwhelmed with the ideas that he or she is bringing to the market that often an ERP is the last thing they want to worry about.
Therefore, in the best of cases, the business owner typically will subcontract the firm’s accounting to an independent accounting firm that uses familiar personal productivity tools, such as Outlook, Word and Excel, to manage the operations of the business.
However, there is a case to be made for a different strategy.
- Modern ERP’s have become very affordable for startups
- Implementation of an ERP for a startup is way easier than after the business has developed their own ways of doing things
- An ERP is the perfect platform for a startup to learn about best business practices before developing their own customized processes on top
- Some consulting firms, including Computel, have a special program to help startups quickly implement a best of breed ERP, with packaged fixed price services
