Have you ever noticed that many applications you use on a daily basis do just about everything you want them to, but there are missing features that would make the software “perfect”? Let’s have some fun! In the comment section below, share some features you wish your favorite applications had.
ERP applications are no different. In most cases, they will do just about everything an organization needs, but there is often something missing or functionality that doesn’t align quite right with a business model.
At its core, an ERP system is a group of integrated applications that allow a business to “collect, store, manage and interpret data” from all units.
Most ERP systems offer extensive customization options. Organizations will benefit from using a partner like Oasis Solutions to help them identify business needs and customize the ERP system for the organization’s business model.
In spite of the customization capabilities of ERP system, there are some cases where the application can’t be customized to meet the exact needs an organization. This usually occurs when the level of customization required goes outside of the ERP’s existing code structure.
For example, an organization may need a significant amount of data manipulation that needs data scientists to get involved along with a custom programming team to develop a Python-based software solution. The current ERP is built in .NET and meets 90% of the business needs, but this remaining 10% is mission critical.
In this scenario, should the organization abandon the ERP and look for another application?
A custom software development firm specializing in Python can build a custom application that solves your business problem and integrates with your ERP.
