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

Developing something inhouse sounds bad but does have several key benefits. One is the design reflects the company's methods and organization. It is tailored to the needs of the company, A very import but overlooked benefit when done right is the business was able to set the detailed requirements and the code fulfills those requirements. A hidden benefit is the inhouse IT staff knows the code and knows what they can do to modify in the future.

Third party 'solutions' often do not fit the company's needs and no amount of 'shimming' or 'tweaking' is going to fix that problem.
