So what are the trends in 2017 – what should we be mindful of when looking at ERP solutions, to answer this question we asked one of the Senior Solutions Consultants in Aspera Solutions.  They provided a list with five key areas:


Collaborative ERP

  • Inbuilt tools for instant messaging (driven by users and ERP data)
  • Build forums and special interest groups
  • Messages and notifications directly driven by ERP activity
  • Extend the collaborative platform beyond ERP users and even into the supply chain
  • Promotes input and contribution
  • True collaboration
