Compare JBitPro to SAP and Netsuite Cloud ERP Solutions

Choosing an ERP system is not something you can do over night, and it isn't something you can stop thinking about once you have made your choice.  Once you get on board with your new ERP System, you need to continue evaluating things like:
  • Support Experience
  • Cost of ownership
  • Ease of use
  • Consultant costs
All of these factors play into your overall satisfaction with your current ERP solution.  I am sure you can think of some other items to add to this list, but for now let's just focus on those areas above.

Support Experience

There are 3 key factors to how well your provider stacks up in this area, and it might just be the most important area in using an ERP, or any other software solution for that matter.  We need to answer some questions to see if there is a hole in your current offering:
  1. Do they respond quickly when there is an issue that is affecting your business?
  2. Is their support affordable?
  3. Do they break their own published SLA rules often?
If the answer to any one of these questions is yes, then your not getting the best support effort out of your current provider, and it is time to start looking around at what is out there.

Cost of Ownership

Using an ERP System these days boils down to "Leasing an ERP System".  The days of buying an ERP System that doesn't come with some monthly or yearly costs, are fading fast.  This means you mush look for the solution with the lowest leasing cost, and it is more than just the direct subscription cost.  What most people do when registering for an ERP, is look only at the monthly/yearly subscription costs.  This leads to a costing problem, since there are almost always some hidden costs that were not accounted for.
  • Consulting costs
  • Addon costs
  • Implementation costs
  • Support costs
  • Long term IT costs
  • Hardware costs
Most all of these things add up very quickly, and will push your ERP leasing costs into the 10's of, and sometimes 100's of thousands in overall cost.  So how does JBitPro stack up in these areas against the big names?
