Distributors need cost-effective technology solutions to remain competitive. The problem with many technological changes in your distribution center, and the reason many upgrades are put off, is the fear that making changes will only add to your problems initially until the “kinks” of the new system are worked out. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way. Contact NSA for help.
Don’t Fall for Legacy Systems in Disguise
If you are considering updating your distribution center technology to a modern system that offers better business intelligence, mobility capabilities, and improved backup and disaster recovery – you want to make sure you aren’t buying a legacy system disguised as a modern solution. The whole point of upgrading is so you aren’t running your distribution center’s critical payment, warehouse management, and billing systems on outdated technology. Your legacy ERP solution may provide the ability to do the bare minimum of what you need to do, but modernizing your system is necessary to keep up, and surpass, your competitors.
Upgrading is More Affordable Than You Think
You have probably heard that the cost of modernizing your legacy ERP solution would be out of reach. Here’s what you should consider:
The cost of upgrading to a modern system is LESS than the cost of service-related failures you will experience as your legacy system becomes increasingly out of date.
If your database is corrupted, or your inventory control capabilities or order processing abilities are hindered by an out of date solution – it will cost more to fix or recover from your loss of sales than it will cost to upgrade to a system prepared to meet your needs today and in the future as your business grows.
Modern ERP Helps You Unlock Hidden Profit Opportunities
One of the key ingredients to long-term success is an ERP solution with business intelligence features you can actually use. You can find hidden areas for higher profits in your organization by improving your performance.
If you are looking to grow your operations, you will eventually need to let go of your legacy software and bring in a modern solution that can meet your changing needs now and provide a scalable solution as you reach your business goals.
