Why Now is the Right Time to Modernize your ERP

Date: Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Modernizing Finance ERP is crucial. You know it because your people can’t collaborate, your systems don’t interact the way they need to and, worst of all, you can’t get your business partners, CEO, and the Board the information they need to run the company, in a timely and simple fashion. In other words, your company’s performance and your job are both at stake

This webinar discusses how modern ERP provides the operational efficiencies, digital transformation and confidence you need to be leading your company with useful information and actions, as opposed to falling behind. You will hear from multiple experts in finance, accounting and ERP technology while also having the opportunity to see some of what it means to use a modern ERP platform.

Whichever point on the ERP curve your company is on, you need a modernization strategy that fits your needs, culture, budget, and timeline. Acknowledging where your current ERP system does not support your business objectives is the first step in your ERP modernization journey.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Recognize how modern ERP provides the operational efficiencies, digital transformation and confidence you need
Identify a modernization strategy that fits your needs, culture, budget, and timeline
Understand where your current ERP system does not support your business objectives
