CRM Testing Throughout Implementation
In terms of strategic partnerships, the acquirer is responsible for judging how well customer relationship management (CRM) software will function on the equipment and at the site, and with staff, customers, and third-party applications. Acceptance testing involves three basic flavors: user acceptance, operational acceptance, and contractual acceptance. While it is not the only step involved when implementing a CRM system, testing is a fundamental way of finding information and will help you judge a system’s returns and pitfalls.

ERP Fail: When Best Practices Meet Real Life » The TEC Blog
functionality, some peripheral”bolt-on” bespoke modules, but never invasive modification. Avoid the temptation to try and “software engineer” your way around every roadblock. Also, don’t think you have to use every piece of functionality in the ERP suite. You don’t.
