What is the Manufacturing ERP Requirements Template?

 Our prebuilt manufacturing ERP requirements checklist speeds up your ERP evaluation and selection process by giving you a prebuilt list of common ERP functionalities and requirements.

An ERP requirements list, ERP RFI & RFP template or ERP selection template (as it is widely known) is a document which catalogues the requirements for an ERP project. The ERP template is used during request for information (RFI) and request for proposal (RFP) interactions between organisations and ERP suppliers.

The document outlines ERP vendor selection criterias and specifies the features and functions that a company needs it's enterprise resource planning solution to cover. It also acts as an ERP evaluation template and includes information on other topics that are important for an ERP evaluation, including data security, integration and user experience. The ERP requirements specification document should also provide an area for potential solution providers to give feedback on the functionality their solution provides including functionality, implementation, license and services costs.

We recommend that your ERP business requirements template provides as much detail as possible to potential ERP suppliers and vendors, so that they can accurately respond. It's also important that you have internal agreement amongst your ERP project team on what the ERP requirements template is asking for.
