Microsoft Dynamics NAV: The Perfect ERP Solution for Distributors

How do we define perfection? A perfect score in bowling is 300. A perfect score for a hotel or restaurant is 5 stars. A perfect SAT score is 1,600 points. Many activities or attributes are rated on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being a perfect score.

What metrics do we use to rate ERP software?

There’s no established point system for rating ERP software, although there are some software-comparison Web sites that use a variety of different ratings based on features, functionality, and other factors as well.

Of course, features and functionality are important. But other factors, such as reliability and ease of use, are equally important. Most important of all, in our opinion (and perhaps you would agree), is UX (user experience) and customer satisfaction. All the features and functionality, bells and whistles in the world don’t amount to much if your users find that the system is difficult to use, if the UI (user interface) is not intuitive, or if the navigation is confusing.

Also, if maintaining the system is a bear of a job, your IT team will be very unhappy. Or if it’s difficult to extract reports, your finance team will be grumpy.
