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, and explain how your business will be more efficient with their system in place.  When you ask about help implementing the new ERP, this is where things get really, really expensive.

"A consultant...you say?"

"Yes sir, to get the most out of our ERP you will need the help of one of our qualified, expert partners.  I have a few firms you can use.  If you use another, they need to be certified to implement our solutions, or your support  contract will be in breach."

That is how they get you.  You are on the fence, and they come with the right words to make sure you feel lost without a consultant.  They have a partnership with consulting firms that they have trained with the skills to install and answer all of your questions about their product.  In most cases these consultants will require 1 - 2 years to implement your new ERP system.  This is a valid timeframe considering the complex nature of the ERP you have chosen.  And the average consultant fee for 1 year's work is between $60 - $75k.  They are in effect, your employee for the term of the implementation.  And after the implementation, they can stick around for support, at the same price.  So, you are now paying $80 - $100k for your new ERP system - per year!

There has to be a better way...

This brings us to the option that isn't even on your radar, yet.  There is an ERP that doesn't require a consultant, and comes with support!  You won't need to pay $80 - $100k for it, and you will get all of the benefits of the major brands!  That option is JBitPro Cloud ERP!  We don't think that an ERP should require a team of college students to manage, or implement it.  We think that the average business needs a simple solution that anyone on their staff can easily learn to use, and can set it up with out any major difficulties.  Are we saying that JBitPro is better than the big brands?  No...We are saying that it is simpler, way more affordable, and comes with a consultant.

Family Time is VERY Important!

It's the beginning of another new year, and you have a long list of things that you want to accomplish.  One of those things is more important than any of the others.  More important than making more money, more important than loosing weight, more important than exercising more.  What is important that these other goals, so much that it makes them seems small in comparison?  Spending more quality time with your family!  It is one of the most sought after goals around the world, year after year.  We say it every year "This is the year I spend more time with my family!"  And year after year we can't find the way for this goal to be accomplished.
