abstract
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are a relatively new type of information systems in developing countries, which slowly find its place in many organizations in Macedonia. ERP is a concept that has been broadly accepted in European enterprises over more than a decade ago. The experience of European companies which implemented ERP systems is different: some of them have perceived positive impact, while for some it created huge problems. Implementing an ERP solution certain affects the company as a whole. The primary goal of an ERP implementation is managing and coordinating all resources, information, and business processes from shared data stores. On the other hand reorganization of business processes required by the adoption, and the adoption itself, can be disruptive and thus creating serious organizational problems especially in small and medium-sized enterprises (SME). This paper elaborates on an ERP solution implementation in the Macedonian production sector and the effect it has on the company efficiency. A case study was conducted in a small or medium-sized manufacturing company in Macedonia during a period of seven years and compared to empirical findings of ERP systems implementations in developed countries. Findings show almost similar results. ERP systems implementations require time, money and management commitment and the effect to improve efficiency is embryonic. However in the particular case it was also noticed that ERP system implementation helps in the transformation of the ownership of the company and in establishing better market competitiveness.
