Telltale signs its time for your ERP to have an MOT
When you hear the abbreviation ‘MOT’, you think of your car, the same with getting your vehicle serviced. The first apparent reason our vehicle goes through an MOT is the fact it’s a legal requirement. However, servicing is optional. The AA comment on servicing: ‘It can be a false economy to avoid regular car servicing, since expected wear and tear requiring minor maintenance, can fast become a costly major repair or replacement’. The same thing needs to be said for your ERP and business information systems. We want you to understand that your ERP system will not automatically update to reflect changes in your business. Neglecting your systems will leave them out of alignment with your overall business strategy and unable to respond to the needs of your customers.
