An ERP system automates business processes across most, if not all, departments within an organization of any size or industry. Our definition of ERP encompasses accounting systems, which can automate business processes across departments within a smaller company.

The products have been segregated by tier based on target customer and price. Within each tier, we have further classified which applications are applicable to the systems as well as the distribution model. See the filter box above to sort for the desired tier, application, and distribution model.
