SME in India (also Globally) is one of the fastest growing market.  Information Technology (IT) plays an important role in growth of any  SME.  To improve the productivity & performance to cope up with the highly competitive global environment  , it is inevitable to have a right ERP for any SMEs. 

The ideal way to select and implement an ERP should be as follow:

* Set the expectations right.
* Do the due diligence.
* Do the planning.
* Select the right implementation - On Cloud or On Premise.
* Set aside the right Budget.
* Select the right software & the vendor

The last point " Select the right software & the vendor "   being the most important let us discuss this in detail.

These criteria include : 

* Level of support from the solution provider

* Quality of documentation 
* Functionality of the software
