ERP systems play a significant role in the performance of any distribution or manufacturing business. It’s also vital for companies in many other industries – from finance and accounting to risk management no matter which vertical, size, or target audience your business is in. Making an ERP your core tool is more than important not only for large enterprises but for small businesses and ambitious startups as well.
Keeping in mind the importance of an ERP system, it’s essential to find the one which meets your specific needs and goals.

Most startups don’t have weeks to spend learning what makes their solution tick. They need a hands-on system that offers a wide range of opportunities to improve and scale when needed.
