Abstract [en]

"The system and vendor selection are early phases in the Enterprise resource planning (ERP)""implementation process. When organizations embark on selecting an ERP system, they develop their own selection criteria that usually involve various factors like number of modules, required budget, licensing model, etc. One of the paramount factors is the system’s fit with the organizational requirements and needs. Thus, the selection phase is a crucial endeavour, because if an organization chooses an inadequate ERP that doesn’t accommodate their needs, the whole adoption project will most likely predestine to fail. This research provides an overview of an ERP selection process at a subsidiary of a multinational company. The paper provides details about the selection process, criteria, and the evaluation process made by an ERP selection consultant that has been hired by the company to assist them during this phase. The selection process employed a simple multi-attribute rating technique (SMART) ERP selection method. In addition, this research presents other issues that influenced the selection process, which are related to cross-border data protection laws between the holding company and its subsidiary. As the ERP has been implemented successfully, the method and the selection factors have been proven adequate for the selection process.
