Doing the research and selecting a new ERP solution such as SAP Business One can be a daunting task. There are numerous factors you need to take into consideration when picking the right solution for your organization. The first factor is cost. Many ERP solution providers may give you a number that comes in below your budget because they’re not including potentially hidden costs. Third Wave Business Systems helps you understand the costs upfront when you’re investing in ERP software.

It’s important to recognize that price should not be the final deciding factor when investing in an ERP system. You want to go with a solution that will be the best fit for your organization as a whole and enable you to achieve a return on your investment. The following are a few ways in which Third Wave helps you understand the ERP costs upfront:

  • Implementation – The total budget number Third Wave provides you with is the total cost of your implementation.
  • Customization – Often, you need additional flexibility and functionality out of your ERP system than what comes pre-built into it. Requiring certain customizations to the software is somewhat typical, but can be pretty costly. Third Wave is skilled at tailoring your system to your specific needs while keeping costs low. 
  • Maintenance –At Third Wave, we are upfront about what your annual maintenance fees are. This is important because there are never any unexpected maintenance-related costs that pop up.
