Overview

Businesses looking to buy an ideal ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system are concerned about the total implementation cost (TCO), vendor reliability, usability features, product reliability, application updates, user reviews, along with other aspects.

Small and Medium-size Businesses (SMBs) often struggle to maintain healthy margins while expanding and streamlining their operational functionalities. SMBs might have to deal with organization-wide communication issues, difficulties in responding to customers' requirements; and complexities in monitoring and managing inventory.

Besides, most of the enterprises have to deploy and manage multiple software systems for seamlessly storing their digital data sources, installed across the departments. Emerging SMBs need smart business management applications, like ERP platforms, while executing their expansion strategies. Organizations aim to enhance customer engagements, improve workflows, and minimize the operating time of business processes.
