‘Legacy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)’ is a common IT term that refers to the software being outdated or lacking modern support/features. These legacy ERPs can sometimes be viewed in a negative light, with distributors attempting to avoid using a legacy ERP at all costs. But the truth is, that a distributor’s operations often depend on these tried-and-true legacy ERP systems. If you’re currently on a legacy ERP and not sure if you should stay where you are or consider migrating to a next-gen modern ERP solution – you’re going to want to read on.

Enhancement Options for Your Legacy ERP System

You’ve invested a lot into your current legacy ERP over the years and it may be lacking some of the functionality you want as you look to the future of your business. But here are some points to consider if you are contemplating a new ERP. These options give you access to additional functionality for your legacy ERP at a fraction of the cost of purchasing, implementing, and educating employees on a next-gen solution.

Are you thinking about extending the capabilities inside your legacy ERP but not sure where to start? Consider Aktion Associates’ three-step process to begin digital transformation inside your legacy ERP environment.

How to Identify When to Consider a New Next-Gen ERP

There may come a time when your current legacy ERP system no longer fits your unique business needs. We’ve compiled a list of the most common reasons to consider a new next-gen ERP.

If you’re considering a modern next-gen ERP system, we’d recommend that you look at Infor CloudSuite Distribution (CSD). Infor CSD is a cloud-based, industry-specific ERP solution built to meet the needs of modern, growth-oriented distributors. We’ve compiled a library of short videos that show the features and functionality you’ll experience inside the platform.

At the end of the day, the decision to keep your existing legacy ERP or move to a new next-gen ERP is up to you. There isn’t a magic eight ball you can shake that’s going to give you the right answer. But after reading this blog you’re armed with the knowledge to make a more educated decision on whether you should stay on your legacy ERP or go to a next-gen ERP.

Long-term value creation for A+ and FACTS ERP customers is at the center of Infor’s recent rollout of Compass. Starting January Jan. 1, 2022, all FACTS and A+ customers are now supported by this Infor group. This strategy aligns perfectly with Aktion’s existing position which has always been to support our A+ and FACTS customers for as long as they choose to use the software.

Headed by Bill Vellante, the vision of Infor Compass is to:

 

What Compass Means to A+ and FACTS Customers

Customers can move at a pace that works best for their business. There’s no rush for A+ and FACTS users to migrate to Infor CSD. Customers may remain on their current heritage software for as long as they want, and Infor will continue to provide support including bug fixes through Compass.

The Infor Compass team is comprised of Infor personnel who know A+ and FACTS and are focused on product direction, support and on delivering an outcome-based customer experience.

Together, Infor and Aktion have the structure in place to support this valued customer set for as long as they choose to use the software.

Our strongest sources of value are:

The bottom line is Aktion’s A+ and FACTS customers have complete peace of mind. They can remain on the current heritage software and receive complete support with Infor Compass and, when the time is right, partner with Aktion to start the journey to a modern business operation.
