Today’s Outdated State of ERP
When was the last time you upgraded your ERP system? Not just patched, fixed or tinkered with it—but implemented a substantive upgrade that enabled real business innovation, generated excitement and unleashed a wave of ideas and productivity from your users? You know—the same kinds of enthusiasm that greets web or iPhone apps like Instagram, Spotify, Netflix, etc.?
If you’re like your peers, then the answer is “not in recent memory.” In fact, according to Forrester, “approximately half of ERP customers are on releases that are two versions behind the current release, which may be four years old or more.”

At the end of last year, the US alone had 435 million smart mobile devices in use — that’s 35% higher than the total US population. Among smartphone users, 68% use messaging apps regularly. And 84% of smartphone engagement with apps is spent communicating via text, email, and social channels.
What does this mean for brands? The current state of CX is broken. Brands focus too much on channel and transaction, ignoring the customer’s preferences, and, ultimately, negatively affecting their bottom line.
But wherever there’s a disconnect, there’s also opportunity. In increasing numbers brands are turning to messaging platforms and apps to offer more efficient, convenient customer service.
According to the Pew Research Center, 97% of Americans who own a smartphone use them to send or receive text messages*, demonstrating that mobile messaging is one of the most widely used features. Download now to learn how texting exposes your company to massive risk.
According to the American Community Survey, tele-commuting jumped 79 percent between 2005 and 2012. More than 9 million American workers did their jobs exclusively from home in 2010, according to the U.S. Census, and 30 million work from home at least once a week. And TechCast at George Washington University estimates as many as 30 percent of U.S. private sector workers could be working from home by 2019. For sales professionals, that proportion is certainly higher. The Telework Research Network found in 2011 that 70 percent of those working from home are in management, professional, sales and office jobs. If you’re in sales, you probably spend a considerable amount of time on the go. And why shouldn’t you? Smartphones offer constant, pocket-sized connectivity. Ubiquitous Wifi threatens to render the cubicle obsolete, and the right social networking strategy can sup-plant a hundred individual pitch meetings.

Providing better products at a better price isn’t always enough to attract and retain customers. The only way to truly stand out is to provide outstanding customer service. But, simply answering a customer’s phone call on the first ring or resolving an issue doesn’t qualify as outstanding customer service anymore.
Business phone systems may not attract the same attention or achieve the same acclaim that computers, smart phones and tablets regularly receive. You won’t hear of too many publicized conferences or Twitter trends but that does not negate their importance.
