Tips on Finding A Suitable Campus Management ERP Vendotby jagadeesh kumar Analyst
Managing a campus entirely on manpower is not practically viable hence most of the campuses today rely on campus management ERP’s. This has actually helped these institutions streamline their work processes and automate them. They have successfully managed to optimize their processes and their resources as well. Yet, there are many more colleges in India which are still to switch to ERP’s for management of their institution. If you are one of them and are looking forward to install a campus management software for your institution, here are a few tips that might help you find a suitable ERP vendor for e-automation of your campus.
Clientele - one of the most vital considerations while looking for an ERP vendor is the clients that he has been handling since inception and more so recently in the past few years. This will help you know the level of clients he deals with and the size as well.
Expertise - There are many vendors that offer Campus Management ERP’s but finding one that exclusively offers ERP’s for campuses is always a good idea. Though it is not mandatory but going for an exclusive vendor is in layman’s lingo going for a specialist doctor rather than a physician.
Transition needs – This is one of the most vital considerations because for successful adaption of the new technology in the office and amongst your team, it is very important to have a vendor who has a full proof training and orientation package along with the ERP software. To take optimum benefits of the campus management software and for successful Transition from a traditional working system to an automated campus management this is a point to be considered.
Experience – The number of years the company or the vendor has been in business does matter. With ERP’s the relationship many a times is long lasting as it is on yearly renewal of certain services and not one time. So, it is advisable to check out for how long the company has been in business.
Customizable ERP – Every institution has its own demands and needs when it comes to campus management and hence a vendor that provides one size fit for all does not work at all. Do not buy from such vendors even if they offer low prices. Instead look out for a vendor who can create an ERP that is tailored to meed the unique needs of your institution.
Though these are some of the vital points to consider while looking out for a campus management ERP, it is even more important that you are crystal clear about your campus requirements. If you know what you want then only can you explain the vendor your requirements and get the desired output in terms of a customized campus management ERP that automates your workflow processes and provides optimum ROI.
