Strength in Agility – Planning for Unforeseen Opportunities

I’m looking to lease a new car. Even though I live in a city where snowy winters are the norm, I can’t stop looking at sports cars and picturing myself driving them through a perpetual summer.  But with a multi-year lease, I really need to be thinking ahead.  Will I start a family?  Will I need room for car-seats and twice as many groceries?

When making sizable purchases, you always need to plan for the future, foreseeable and otherwise. Making software decisions, especially when it comes to ERP systems, is no exception.  Your company might be very successful with your model today, but you may need to pivot to take advantage of future opportunities.  Are you going to start taking advantage of more ecommerce opportunities? Will you land a big customer that requires consignment? Will you grow your own warehouse and start scanning, or switch to a 3PL?

Momentis software is developed with the knowledge that what you do today may not be what you do tomorrow. Since implementing an ERP requires time and energy commitments from every area of your business, restarting when your needs change is not a reasonable proposition.  This is why it is so important at Momentis that, in addition to constant software improvements, we implement a modular system that can expand your capabilities if and when you need to.

Adding new sales channels or growing your staff by 100% are activities that should be exciting instead of daunting, so we make sure your software is ready to scale as you are. Unfortunately, a 2 seater sports car can’t reasonably be expanded to the size of a mini-van, no matter how much duct tape I get.
