Why a Good ERP Vendor Relationship is so Important and Which Ones Deliver

Written by Laura Schomaker

As businesses evaluate ERPs, they consider several factors, including their in-built features and how they can complement internal processes. One issue businesses might not consider is the relationship they have with the ERP vendor who works with them during and after implementation. This core business relationship is consultative by nature and essential to the success of a chosen ERP solution.

Why ERP Vendor Relationship Matters?

Why do you need to consider the quality of your relationship with an ERP vendor? An ERP solution excels when it answers directly to your business’ specific demands. Working with an ERP vendor who maintains a productive and collaborative relationship with your team is an essential part of this process. A good ERP vendor relationship means that the vendor will have a thorough understanding of your business and products, then tailor the ERP’s features to handle these requirements. The positive effects of this strong relationship with your ERP vendor will continue after implementation, as well. As your business grows or scales up, your vendor and implementation partner will be ready to make the best recommendations and strengthen your ERP solution along with your business in the most proactive way possible. 

Which ERP Vendors Deliver on Relationship

Recently, G2 released its “Mid-Market Relationship Index for ERP Systems“ to establish a “Relationship” score for some of the leading solutions in the ERP space, providing benchmarks for product comparison and market trend analysis. G2 calculated each score with a proprietary algorithm that factors in user satisfaction ratings across several relationship-related queries.
