The Owner of company, Mr. Yash Gandhi was clear about attributes that he was looking for in the ERP software.The projection was for a stable solution that could automate transaction load of his growing company. Commenting on the features that they were looking for in an ERP system, Mr.Yash Gandhi shares, “We are looking for a product with multi-branch, multi-location inventory management capabilities,with a strong costing methodology. We also want the solution to include an approval system for material indenting and have high levels of user security and user right definitions. The other products that we reviewed could not demonstrate the required amount of customization that we were looking for.”
