Modernizing ERP: Users are Demanding Flexible & Accessible ERP Apps

(Last Updated On: December 13, 2022)

How should companies keep their employees happy? Nowadays, it seems one way is to equip them with modern ERP systems. According to a recent survey conducted by Epicor written up in InformationWeek, many of its users were unhappy with their ERP systems. This unhappiness stemmed from the fact that their software systems were inflexible and inaccessible. Many users are now requesting ERP applications that will allow them to access their management system from any mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Along with this mobile access request, other “important considerations for future ERP implementations” consist of:

  1. Fast time to value
  2. Simplicity and user-friendliness
  3. Easy collaboration
  4. Deployment Choices: on-premises, cloud or hybrid

Results found that “65% perceive mobility as important to enable access to information and support communication for virtual works”. This is a pretty high number and yet, as of today, only 25% are able to access their ERP via a smartphone or tablet. Unfortunately, there is still 43% looking to access their system via a smartphone and 38% via a tablet (InformationWeek, 2014). It looks like there are still unhappy ERP users out there in companies that haven’t modernized and mobilized their ERP system.
