Your ERP & CRM recruitment questions, answered

What are the biggest ERP and CRM trends right now?

With so many changes, where to start! Many organizations are forging ahead with upgrading older ERP systems to meet changing customer demands. Cloud ERP is proving to be a game changer, and adoption is accelerating away from on-premise software in many organisations across Canada.

AI and machine learning capabilities are going to continue being embedded into ERP and CRM systems allowing for better optimisation of business processes, greater personalisation and improved engagement with customers such as through the use of chatbots. To get ahead, you’re going to want to invest in these areas.

Low code or no code CRM and ERP systems are also set to receive more focus as they allow for greater customisation and personalisation of non-technical ERP and CRM users.

Is it hard to hire ERP and CRM professionals in Canada?

Absolutely, but we like a challenge! Digital transformation projects have really ramped up, especially for those with large IT infrastructures. This means it’s going to be tricky to secure the right people, especially those with experience in the newest technologies such as SAP S/4HANA implementations or AI capabilities like Salesforce Einstein.

What are the top technical skillsets needed in ERP and CRM?

Expertise in cloud implementations are going to be tough to secure as there has been a surge in demand across all sizes of organizations. Employers are looking for professionals with experience in newer tech such as AI, predictive analytics and robotic process automation, which can mean lots of competition for these individuals. You’ll have to move quickly to secure them.

What soft skills should I look out for when hiring ERP and CRM professionals?

Within ERP, change management skills are critical to successfully completing an ERP implementation or upgrade. Tied in with this are strong communication and stakeholder management skills. These soft skills are also vital within CRM roles, in particular the ability to communicate with a non-technical audience in an engaging way.
