Thinking about ERP

iPlan literally 'wrote the book' on ERP strategies.

iPlan's professionals have been ERP project managers since the eighties, through much advancement in the technology, and in many locations around the world. Over time, a wealth of practical experience and deep expertise in this field has been amassed.  

In the book 'Thinking about ERP', we address the strategies a decision maker should consider when thinking about selecting, implementing and operating an ERP system.

The book is available to buy in electronic format at Amazon's Kindle store: search for 'Thinking about ERP'
