Most SMEs plan to grow. Selecting a software system with the ability to scale up as the business grows is critical.
Changing your business software system is one process companies should attempt to minimize during the life of the business. Business software system changeovers are typically disruptive to the day to day business, especially during the project, but often extending to the time immediately following a changeover regardless of how well the project is planned and executed. A system changeover places extra stress on staff leading up to and at the time of changing over to the new system. Of course often there are many compelling reasons why a company must change their advanced business software system.
Business growth and changes in technology often make a system change over unavoidable. In such circumstances selecting a system that is both scalable from a technology and a functional perspective is critical. Equally important is selecting a software manufacturer with a track record of delivering technical and product capability advancements that keep their product fresh and relevant to their client base.
