ScienceSoft’s Head of Enterprise Application Development

Revamp of the existing ERP and its extension with new modules usually offer a more affordable way to get a modern enterprise system. However, in some cases, fixing the accumulated technical debt requires way larger investments than building ERP from scratch. We always conduct a feasibility study before starting a project to weigh the benefits of ERP upgrading vs. replacement and define a more economically feasible approach for each client.

Custom ERP Development Cost and Timelines

From ScienceSoft’s experience in custom ERP software development, building an MVP of custom ERP takes around 3–5 months. Implementing an ERP system for a midsize company may require 1–3 years, depending on the solution complexity, supported regions, and regulatory compliance requirements.

Pricing Information

Average costs for building a standalone ERP module (e.g., for corporate finance or supply chain management) vary from $200,000 to $500,000. Companies looking to develop an all-in-one ERP system should expect to invest $1,500,000+.
