Re: Can ERP actually be a perfect fit for any company ?
"Of course, it still went wildly over budget..."
all ERP systems go wildly over budget. That's not necessarily because the implementations were botched or too complex, more likely the vendors have a good idea of the real price required and know the customer would baulk if quoted the real amount. So vendors quote a low initial cost plus rate for work, knowing full well that the work required will be much more than what they are saying in their unbelievably optimistic estimate.
