Because every business that uses them is different, ERP and CRM software must be custom tailored to the needs of each business. Traditionally, that has meant either custom developing an ERP or CRM system for the specific requirements of an organization or purchasing an existing ERP and CRM system and customizing it.Both approaches have significant issues. Custom development projects often start innocuously. “We know what we need, so let’s do it.” “Doing it” in software development, though, could be expensive and risky, and the majority of custom software development projects ultimately fail to meet the needs of the users.
