Don’t stop investing in ERP (enterprise-resource-planning) projects now, due to economic pressures. Do just the opposite, as return-on-investment (ROI) estimates easily cost-justify ERP projects. So finds a newly published research report, “Measuring the ROI of ERP: Keeping Projects Alive Just When You Need Them the Most,” from Aberdeen Group, and sponsored by Plex Systems, Auburn Hills, MI. Researchers concluded that best-in-class companies, with regards to ERP projects, produce twice the reduction in inventory levels as industry average, and that these companies expect ERP projects to pay for themselves within two years.
