How to Dump Your Enterprise Software Vendor With Heart

Humorous Valentine's Day Letter for Anyone Facing ERP Heartache

DALLAS, TX and VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - Agresso has launched a tongue-in- cheek Valentine's Day campaign to encourage businesses to dump their ERP vendors if they are involved in a dysfunctional relationship. There is likely a wide audience for this message: according to research, 83% of companies say they will go back to the same ERP vendor, regardless of their inability to accommodate change.

In a mock "Dear John" letter, Agresso writes: "I don't know how to tell you this... but I'm seeing someone else... it's not you, it's me... "

Dump your vendor with heart:

The letter can be customized by frustrated users who need to vent about their ERP software. They can forward it to friends for a laugh, or for really sour relationships, even email it directly to their ERP vendor.

In the theme of romance gone awry, Agresso also features a funny video called "Stop the Madness," that plays on the inexplicable loyalty some people show to destructive relationships.
