The need for CIERP Certification

+ ERP professionals  need certification for effective recognition and career advancement. The CIERP certification places ERP professionals ahead of their competition allowing their company to recognize them for the important knowledge and capability that they contain. These certified professionals will learn of a host of different tools for obtaining important information on ERP systems, the industry, and new technologies. Many CIERP professionals become change agents and educators spreading the word on basic concepts, making their company and others successful in ERP.

+ Companies  need the capability to understand critical decisions that will impact a company's successful implementation and use of an ERP system. For every dollar  invested in fundamental education in an ERP system over 1000 dollars can be saved in expensive ERP projects that either fail or perform poorly. Most ERP systems fail because management was lacking in fundamental concepts that make ERP systems successful. As ERP team members learn basic concepts of ERP systems they gain a better understanding of how an ERP system integrates with a company's business process flows. They will be
able to implement an ERP system faster and cheaper, placing their company ahead of the competition. With 60 to 80 percent of all ERP systems failing or not meeting expectations, few companies can afford not to use certified ERP professionals.
