However, implementation of ERP systems brings a number of challenges for businesses. The major one is low levels of IT literacy in small and medium scale businesses that makes it difficult for workforce in these organizations to implement and manage these systems well. Also, high cost of putting these systems into effect coupled with their incompatibility with mobile devices and non-user-friendly design add to users’ difficulties.
