CHAPTER 3

Myth 3: Implementing With The Original Manufacturer Is Best

 

Not necessarily. When a company decides to invest in ERP software, vendors can help in the implementation process.

There are different types of vendors. The best will be the one that meets your specific business needs and creates a customized strategy to maximize your investment value. 

Your business resource planning and management needs will determine which type of service provider is adequate. There are critical differences between them.

What Is An Original ERP Developer?

An ERP developer is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). It is also known as a platform provider, software developer, or maker, whether the software is installed on-premise or cloud-based.

Some providers offer implementation directly as an added-value service, while others outsource it to a third party through a business partnership.

What Is An ERP Implementation Partner?

An implementation partner, consultant, or implementer is a third-party integrator or facilitator known as an ERP implementation consultant. Some sell ERP software, as resellers or merchants, and implementation services, while others only provide the second service.

Their role is often to facilitate the integration with the ERP, generally, in alliance with the developer. It reduces customer acquisition costs, gaining quick wins in market share, and developing reliable and repeatable deployment processes, our partner Oracle NetSuite says.
