Forrester Research put out a statistic from a few years back that has been widely cited ever since, and it states that–
“over half of the people who use ERP software are using outdated systems.Many as much as 4 years old or more.”
The main reason for this is probably that most small business leaders claim that they don’t have the time, budget or staff to make a major change and update their ERP system. Essentially they have never found the opportune time to implement a new system.
Updating your ERP system can be a bit intimidating, and it is an investment, as it can be expensive and time-consuming.
