In the last 15 years, new technologies have pushed enterprises both large and small to rethink their process management with respect to the new dynamics created by the changing business landscape. Implementing an ERP is a step many businesses are taking to help organise and optimise the way they do business.
There are many business software offerings currently available on the market, however most are focused solely on the needs of large enterprises. This document aims to give you a good idea of the features offered by the main ERP solutions for SME’s, with an emphasis on cloud-based solutions.
A cloud-hosted ERP solution offers a number of advantages over a traditional ERP that is installed locally, many of which are especially relevant to small businesses. A cloud-based ERP is often more flexible and able to adapt to a growing and changing business. Most of the time, startup and maintenance costs are much lower as well because they are included in the license fee.
In order to offer a fair comparison, Odoo has compiled a table of the most important features into ten categories: Sales, Customer Relationship Management, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Warehouse Management, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Services & Projects, Human Resources and Usability & Productivity and put together a white paper which we are sharing as an Odoo partner.
