Why choose a standard ERP solution?

With the substantial growth of modern ERP software in the cloud, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations, more and more companies are choosing the standard solution as their ERP software, where previously customization was almost always chosen. This shift to standard ERP is not without reason. In this blog we let three HSO customers talk about why a standard ERP solution is the right choice for them when migrating to cloud-based ERP. 

HSO customer Mustad: “Best practices are best practices for a reason“.

Staying as close to the standard as possible has many advantages. Especially if you want to implement one way of working, for example in an international environment, as Mustad does. Mustad Hoofcare, an international manufacturer and supplier of products for the farrier, is in the midst of a digital transformation. Part of this transformation is the international rollout of a new ERP standard, Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations.

Mayra Mouthaan, Group CFO at Mustad, has a clear vision of the success factors that are important in such a complex implementation. Mayra: “Rule 1: keep it simple. Don’t try to change too much too quickly and keep your project manageable. Rule 2: stick to the scope, otherwise you will lose your focus and you will not be able to deliver on time. Rule 3: stick to the standard. Best practices are best practices for a reason, even if it means revising your business processes.”
