Evaluating ERP
Business Software

Most companies keep their ERP business software 7 to 10 years. The cost to purchase and implement an ERP business system is very significant. Select the right ERP system and the right implementation partner, and you can attain new heights in your business. Select the wrong solution or the wrong partner and you are destined for failure.
Every ERP product has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. That’s why we represent multiple products from different software publishers, so that no matter your industry needs, you can find the right solution. While some of our products might overlap in particular capabilities, they are all differentiated by their abilities to handle the unique requirements of particular industries, such as Sage ERP X3 for process manufacturing and Epicor ERP for discrete manufacturing. Or Sage 500 ERP for wholesale distribution, and Sage 100 ERP for accounting, general business, and professional service organizations.
The table below provides a very high-level overview of the four ERP systems we represent to help you understand which solution may be the best for you. We also offer a complimentary ERP Evaluation Template which can be used to evaluate your current ERP system, and provide a grade on its ability to support your business.
