Is the Hunt Really Worth the Kill When it Comes to ERP Software?

Historically, ERP vendors developed applications for the heavy hitting Fortune 100 manufacturing corporations with a price tag to match. The benefits achieved with ERP systems gave large organizations even more of a competitive advantage over smaller companies within the same industry as information and business processes were better streamlined to maximize resources and profitability. Very few companies could afford the million dollar plus price tag just to play, and this barrier to entry remained for decades.

However, in the last decade with web based application sparked by the internet hitting the market and with the power of open source applications and communities, smaller sized businesses are now able to take advantage of ERP software and ERP application benefits with SaaS, software as a service web-based solution that are both affordable and powerful. In a nutshell, ERP application benefits are now available to the masses and that is starting a revolution of new product innovations that fit businesses with a very customized fit regardless of size, industry and business model.

The market is heating up for ERP vendors and small to midsized businesses looking for enterprise solutions. However, this surge of new enterprise software innovations ironically comes with a price. Companies have so many choices when it comes to ERP vendors and software applications that it is not a simple task to filter all the ERP software solutions on the market in order to find the best fitting solution for you. However, the benefits of ERP software applications are tremendous, and it’s usually better to have too many ERP vendors and ERP applications to choose from rather than too few.

  1. The way that most ERP software systems are implemented, and also by virtue of their target audience, the term ERP has really been made to seem like it is only associated with large corporations. Our DBA Manufacturing Next-Generation software package is an ERP system specifically targeted at small business, not only in a marketing sense, but also in design and implementation. There are many other vendors as well that are also starting to produce ERP software more geared to small businesses. That is not to say that a small business can't go with a package targeted at large corporations, but it is likely going to be a long hard and costly road to implementation.
