The New Year is a great time to explore new ideas. And what better way than to think about how to use technology differently. With today’s technology where everything is “in the cloud,” you no longer have your database onsite.

Are there restrictions on how to get the data?
Is my data held hostage?
Modifications, customizations, and configurations can make a great ERP system even better by aligning technology with optimal business processes. There are many reasons to configure systems, such as adding user fields to existing forms or placing constraints on fields to support accurate data entry.

- How does your system handle configurations?
- Are other options available to meet user requirements?
- Are these options making it too difficult to apply patches and updates in the system?
