To build or buy Equipment Management Software?

Your equipment distribution business has decided it needs enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to maximize efficiencies of business processes – now what? You face the choice of whether to buy equipment management software, or build it yourself.

This white paper discusses the pros and cons of both options including:

  • Upfront Costs: Requirements gathering, analysis, design, implementation, testing, training, ongoing maintenance and enhancements.
  • Development Time: Writing and testing code is tremendously labor- and time-intensive.
  • Maintenance: Who is responsible for updates and ongoing maintenance of the ERP system?
  • Software Maturity: It can take years to tweak the software and to fix bugs.
  • Real World Challenges: Companies reorganize/downsize/merge – and the intellectual capital locked in the employees who built your software may not stick around.

According to studies from companies such as IBM, as well as analyst firms such as Gartner Group and IDC, organizations fall short on ROI when they build their software versus buying the ERP system.
