A question that people running a small or medium sized business often ask is what type of software system they need to manage their business, or do they need one at all.

They might have heard the term ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) in relation to business management software, but might not know what it is or could think it’s something that only large enterprises need or can afford.

The reality is that an ERP system is now a business management solution that a business of any size in any industry sector can use and benefit from at a low entry cost. With access to the information and the many great management tools that it provides, smaller businesses can now compete with larger and more established competitors.
