Webinar Replay: Create custom reporting over your enterprise system

EducationSummary: Enterprise systems (like ERPs) pose something of a “Catch-22.” If you don’t customize the system, it won’t perfectly fit your needs. If you do customize it, you’re locked into that system. If you’re facing this challenge, check out this webinar replay and learn how one company delivered custom reporting over their ERP system–without altering the system at all.

If your organization runs an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, let me ask you a question: Does it fit your company’s unique reporting needs?

If the answer is, “No.” or “Not always.”, read on.

The fact is, reporting is one of the most common problems with ERP systems. The system doesn’t offer the reporting options you need, or doesn’t output the data in the way you’d like.

The problem: Customizing the system to meet a company’s exact needs is expensive and time-consuming. To make matters worse, it locks the company into that software version. If they ever wanted to upgrade to a newer version, they would need to redo all of their customizations.

The big question: How can your deliver custom reporting without altering the system?

To answer that question, watch this replay of our joint webinar with Melitta USA. In this webinar, Melitta’s IT Director explains how they:

  • Delivered custom, self-service reporting over their (Friedman Frontier) ERP system
  • Augmented their system, without altering the system itself
  • Provided external access to reports via a secure portal
