There’s no doubt we were all glad to see the back of 2020. It was a challenging year for everyone. We all learnt how to work from home and to communicate in new ways. There were other learning opportunities too, with more of us going online for ideas on how to make ourselves and our companies more efficient and productive. We noticed a distinct increase in the number of people reading our blogs, so as we say a final goodbye (and good riddance!) to last year, here’s a recap of our 5 most popular ERP blogs in 2020.
