I have a project to implement ERP Software for SME. Though I am a software engineer myself and briefly understand things involved, however as I am new to ERP platform and is not sure of what it really takes to implement such a software,
My Questions are :
As the client is a SME and need low cost IT solutions, what are my choices ?, I have thought of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 over SAP due to its low cost overall, but is there any other platform better and widely used and scalable in future ? I am not sure if any open source platforms would be a goood choice here as I want robust, easily scalable, better tech support, large features set ..etc, So what are my options ?
how much such a software cost(say Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012) approximately for a SME (any typical example shall help), what kind of hardware cost(for servers) and software cost(ERP software, SQL Server ..etc) is involved ? and How much shall I charge for my client for such a software ?
Say if I opt for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, would MS send their person who shall help me in implementation ?
What kind of maintenance amount(should it be annual basis / as and when needed) shall be charged for such ERP implementation.
Thanks in advance!
