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?

Why Choose Managed IT Services?

Why would anyone want to hire a IT consultant to handle complex technology needs for their business?  Doesn’t it make more sense to hire a full time IT person to make sure everything is running tip top?

These are questions well worth their weight in gold.  Any smart business owner or leader serves their company well by pondering these questions.  If you are to succeed you must have the right technology in place.  And it must be reliable!
Communications At the core of your business, is the need to communicate with your clients and employees.  This means you must have a set of tools that allows your team to engage those customers and personnel that keep things moving forward positively.  With the increased reliability and security offered by big cloud providers at an affordable price, it makes sense that companies are flocking to services such as Office365 and Google S-Suite for their company email and inter-office communications platforms.  This doesn’t mean that everything is going t…

Let's Hire a Consultant! Why that is a bad idea...

You're in the market for an ERP system.  You have narrowed your search down to 3 major brands, SAP, Oracle Netsuite, and SAGE.  You are reviewing the costs involved, and to this point are still unsure of which one to pick.  Each of those above have the same recurring problem that makes it very hard to decide which platform to go with.  They all have the same core benefits - the promise of making more money by managing your P&L closely, and automating the important tasks that keep your business alive.  But when you balance the cost vs the increased revenue it will bring, by reducing your losses and increasing your efficiency, you find that the increased revenue will cover the new ERP system.

This is where the ERP supplier has done their homework.  You need an ERP, and you need one now.  You start contacting the ERP providers on your list, and they all give you the sales pitch about what their system can do, over the other guys.  How much you will save by going with their option,…
