Calculating ROI

To calculate return on investment in ERP, focus on savings resulting from access to real-time information, but also consider process improvements and ‘soft earnings’ such as additional income achieved from employee and customer satisfaction, enhanced business communication,  improved quality and speed of decision making, etc.
