Why companies use ERPs like SAP, peoplesoft, even they are costly and hard a bit to learn. they can choose another option to get a customized software solutions build for them in lower cost and targeted and designed for them. why they prefer ERPs over them.

Hi 1anurag1, The main reason why the companies are using ERP is to run the organization effectively n efficiently. All the departments are integrated with each other, so its very easy to transfer the data from one department to another. And also there are lots of other reason available for your question...

I think the reason for this is more about time. Because ERP's are business proven to work. If companies will just develop on it's own software solutions it will take them longer and in business sense it's not practical. And also almost all companies uses it and for standard sake it is wise to use what other uses.
