Avoid ERP Challenges and Failures

"Tasked with salvaging a manufacturing firm’s ERP upgrade from AX to FSCM, I witnessed costs inflate from an initial estimate of $1.1 million over 9 months to the final cost of $3.8 million over 18 months. This scenario, though not rare, is now preventable with cutting-edge solutions. GYDE365, a transformative platform, streamlines the process by defining precise requirements and conducting a thorough fit/gap analysis. This ensures your ERP project stays on track and within budget, empowering you with full control."
