Most business decisions come down to cost, especially when deciding whether to bring on more staff or to invest in an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

Meeting the challenge of scalability is a good problem to have, but getting it wrong can be costly in the long run.

So how do you decide whether to hire more people to support growth, or make the decision to invest in the replacement of spreadsheets and bespoke systems that are held together with cable ties?

Ndevr CEO, Maureen Clifford, has been in the business of implementing ERP systems for the past 20 years and believes customers today are struggling more than ever with the problem of selecting an ERP system that will support their business growth.

“We work with companies of all sizes, and while many businesses understand that investing in their systems will deliver a better ROI than bringing on more staff but they still have no idea what a properly integrated solution will cost,” Clifford said.

“It is the reason why we have made available a total cost of ownership (TCO) calculator to help businesses evaluate the costs of an ERP system versus the costs of bringing in more employees to manually handle the workload.”

Looking at a total cost of ownership calculator, such as the one available on the Ndevr website, probably won’t provide all the answers because every business is unique.

“However, a TCO calculator like this can help businesses work out what questions they need to start asking while going through the evaluation process,” Clifford said.

“Ndevr delivers seamlessly integrated business systems that are 100% fit for size and purpose.

“We replace the spreadsheets and bespoke systems that are held together by cable ties and the occasional irreplaceable employee, with seamlessly integrated applications that are easy to use, scalable and robust, so you can get on with growing your business.”
