Have you ever tried to make sense of ERP software and felt that you just got back jargon and acronyms? Are you struggling with an ERP systems implementation and have team members telling you that you’ve gone down the wrong path? Does it look like your business has been impacted adversely?

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are specialized business software applications that integrate the operations of many functional areas within an organization. They are designed to collect, store, and manage data so that executives and team members can correctly interpret the outputs of the system. ERP applications support many business activities within and organization including manufacturing, logistics, field service, and finance.

This book covers a number of topics related to ERP systems, from software selection to planning to implementation and common post-implementation issues.
