How to choose the ideal ERP for your company?

Every day, more and more companies are looking to choose an ERP to solve problems in their daily operations and better control their resources.

That business management systems are useful is no longer a secret to anyone. The tricky part is to distinguish which type of ERP software is the right one to recover the investment of time and money.

With this in mind, we propose 5 key criteria for choosing your ERP system.

Management software has become the driving force behind the operation of large companies. And increasingly, of SMEs. In Mexico, cloud-based systems have become an accessible option for small and medium-sized businesses.

It is vitally important to choose an ERP that suits the needs of companies, because although there is a wide range of these business resources, the truth is that not all are made to perform certain tasks, and therefore, there is a risk of incurring unnecessary costs.

Criteria for choosing an ERP

Investing to improve and automate some processes within the administration of a company is a step that should be taken conscientiously, especially when you are looking to streamline processes and not encourage or complicate them.

That is why, when choosing an ERP, certain criteria must be taken into account, which must be qualified based on the needs and recurring problems within the administration of your company, such as those mentioned below.

Ease of use

The main idea of choosing a suitable ERP for a company is to streamline and improve administrative and accounting processes.

Therefore, we suggest you analyze the software according to its ease of use, because it is useless if it is a complicated tool that, instead of saving time, you have to spend months to understand it and learn how to use it.

The type of company being managed must also be considered. As mentioned above, software is generally more adapted to certain sub-sectors or branches.

Type of company

Although companies can start using an ERP when they are small, they need to choose an ERP that provides them with the ease of having a database and processes that are in line with the size and services they handle. Specifically, we recommend that you pay attention to:
  • Number of users that will require access to the system
  • Number of sales transactions to be managed
  • Folios or invoices per month that will need to be issued.
  • Size of the product catalog that needs to be tracked.
In case of a large company, the number of processes that are performed internally must be taken into account, and find within the ERP, those that are able to centralize and optimize all the data that are handled in it, because in some cases the ERP has limits.

For example, ERP Bind manages different plans and programs within the administration system that are ideal for small and medium-sized companies in the ERP to be implemented.

Adaptable for each company

One of the enormous advantages of these software is that their toolkits are adaptable to each company. That is why when choosing an ERP you should know the specifications of each one of them and see which one is ideal for management.

Here you can opt for a specific ERP, that is to say, one that is specific in the problem it will solve or the data it will maintain. We recommend this option if you already have accounting, inventory, sales, finance or other similar systems.

Keep in mind that an ERP system -unlike other isolated tools- can cross-reference information from all departments, allowing for better analysis and collaboration.


This is important. When choosing an ERP system, the modules offered by the software must be analyzed to allow each department an effective organization, but at the same time, to have everything unified within the same system.

Hosting of information

One of the trends in ERP software is cloud storage, especially because of the need to have the information always available.

Therefore, among the criteria for choosing an ERP is the form of storage or hosting of information.

These are the criteria that the vast majority of companies look for when choosing an ERP to manage their business.

That is why many of them have opted for the software offered by Bind ERP, because in addition to meeting the above mentioned points, it has solved the most common problems of companies.

Most common problems of companies that Bind ERP solves

Bind ERP is one of the most complete software that exists within the Mexican market to give a useful, effective and reliable option to companies looking to choose an ideal ERP.

Since its creation in 2013, Bind ERP has distinguished itself as an integral administration and invoicing system for those SMEs that are looking to incorporate technology into their administrative processes by automating processes that are time-consuming, complicated and, if not carried out correctly, can be detrimental.

The problems that Bind ERP has solved for its more than 6 thousand clients in Mexico are:

Avoiding duplicity

When there is no integrated system or the facility to cross-reference information, as Bind ERP allows, data becomes duplicated and information no longer flows in the same way, creating confusion.

By having the information centralized, Bind ERP clients can review it simultaneously and avoid these problems of double information, thanks to the different modules that Bind ERP services have.

Lack of warehouse control

Loss of resources and shortage of merchandise is one of the most common problems among companies that contact Bind ERP. In general, the cause is the inefficient management of the stock, the buying and selling process and the acquisition of raw materials for the business.

One of the advantages that Bind ERP has to offer to companies that opt to choose its ERP is that it optimizes the use of resources and offers real-time visibility on stock levels in the different warehouses or warehouses.

In addition, Bind ERP generates an anti-stock theft report that shows the stock levels in a given period and the users in charge of recording the information.

Invoicing problem

There is no doubt that no one wants to have problems with the SAT.

When there are problems such as delays, failure in accounts, invoicing and even notes, everything becomes a headache.

That is why when choosing an ERP you should think about the possibility to cover or help in the processes of invoicing and filing of the monthly or annual statement.

In Bind ERP, the movements are automatically recorded in the accounting part. In this way, the accountant always works with accurate information and calculations are made quickly and correctly.

In addition, as a director or business owner you can obtain the financial statements with a couple of clicks.

Planning problems

One of the main causes of closure of SMEs in Mexico is poor financial visibility.

Companies know how much they sold per day or how much their expenses amounted to. But they do not know exactly how those resources were spent, as there are many ant expenses. Or ignore the profitability of their products and branches.

Bind ERP offers this financial visibility with real-time, historical reporting on sales, expenses and costs associated with a large project.

In particular, this ERP system provides accurate, up-to-date information that makes it easier to perform any financial analysis.

When choosing an ERP, it is important to opt for a system that crosses information from different areas. Undoubtedly, this data is a basic input to create the growth strategy of your SME.


Choosing the tool that allows you to optimize activities and boost your company's growth is a point of real analysis.

It takes research and even some testing or watching tutorials to understand very well how they work and how they would benefit your day-to-day activities.

With this in mind, at Bind ERP we offer you a free demo, where you and your team can take a closer look at each of the modules we have for the administration of your company and get a much clearer idea of how they can optimize many of the processes in the business.
