Re: Can ERP actually be a perfect fit for any company ?

Why not both?

The last place I worked at moved from Sage 500 to SAP. They took a middle approach, changing business processes to align with the defaults in SAP where it was easy and made sense, and getting customisation where the business processes couldn't be changed.

Of course, it still went wildly over budget, but the move was mandated by head office so they picked up the bill.

I was only on the periphery of the project, but I did finally get some budget to go buy a proper VM system out of it :)
