An ERP is a big decision for any business which usually means high fees, expensive customization, and major hurdles to cross if it doesn't work out. All that said, it can provide great efficiencies to a business if the timing and need are right, and if you've got the right resources to put into an ERP. 

 

Some questions to ask yourself first:

  • Will the expected return outweigh the costs? How long with my ROI take?
  • Do I need an ERP or can I get away with accounting software and WMS or inventory system?
  • How extensive does my ERP need to be? Can I utilize HR/Inventory/Accounting or do I need manufacturing, purchasing, building planning and the plethora of other functionalities that might come with an ERP

These questions will get you thinking about how far along you are and whether an ERP is the right choice immediately. In many Shopify merchants cases, they can get by with an inventory system and a warehouse management system, and it will take them to several thousand orders a day. 

 

If you'd like to consider a WMS in the earlier phase which will cost a lot less and get you 80% of the way toward an ERP, then certainly check out SKUSavvy which will provide you everything for modern, mobile warehouse management.
