ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the enterprise resource planning (ERP) and its influence in the improvement of an organization's productivity. It stresses that companies prefer to implement ERP systems as a response to the need for a common information technology (IT) platform. It notes that the impact of ERP in productivity may decline prior to the start of its improvements. Moreover, measurable implementation milestones to track productivity levels were suggested.
