Which solutions did we use previously?
We did not use a different solution before purchasing this one.
How was the initial setup?
The initial setup or implementation was a little more complex than I expected. We purchased a pre-configured version.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
This software is sold under a user-based pricing model. This includes access to all the modules of the system, which you can turn on or off for each user based on security.
If you only need a limited amount of functionally now and in the future, buying a module-based system will usually save you money. However, module-based pricing will limit the scalability of your ERP system. For many companies, user-based pricing is often a better value and a better investment – you get more for your money and room to grow.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
Before choosing, we evaluated the other options.
