Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software Overview

What is ERP Software?

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is a system that handles all the resources required to make, ship, and account for customer orders. It does this by integrating all the information flowing through the various departments of a large complex organization.

ERP traditionally involved many different processes, such as manufacturing, supply chain, and accounting. ERP software has also expanded beyond its original business functions to include newer functional areas like Business Intelligence (BI), CRM and Marketing Automation, and eCommerce. As a result, modern ERP can benefit a broader range of companies than the traditional manufacturing-centric users.

The entire data flow across these functions is enabled by a central database that manages the data flow. All functions see and operate with the same data. This unified view of a business’s data mitigates discrepancies across departments and business units and makes financial processes more efficient.. For example, adopting an ERP system can streamline accounting and financial reporting and resource planning.

ERP Features & Capabilities

ERP systems have a very broad range of capabilities, including:

  • Accounting

  • Inventory Management

  • Payroll Management

  • Reporting and Analytics

  • Project Financial Management Procurement

  • Risk Management

  • Logistics

  • Manufacturing

  • Supply Chain Management

  • Product Lifecycle Management

Cloud-based ERP Software

Traditional ERP systems are complex, expensive proprietary products. They usually require consultants to implement them according to a company’s specific requirements and are long, expensive processes.

Many ERP offerings are now available in a SaaS (software as a service) model through the cloud. SaaS ERP products outsource most or all of the IT burden and maintenance costs to the software provider and off of the business using the system. Cloud-based ERP also make updates and upgrades easier to implement and deploy.

Cloud ERP is a more accessible option than on-premise ERP for many SMBs. For smaller companies, the total cost-of-ownership of a cloud-based system is likely to be lower than for on-premise software.

ERP Systems Comparison

To compare different enterprise resource planning systems, consider these factors:

  1. Deployments: Are the ERP systems deployed on-premise, or in the cloud? On-premise software usually requires more in-house IT personnel to manage and maintain the system. On the other hand, SaaS ERP products may limit your in-house customization and require more assistance from the software vendor for long-term support and upgrades.

  2. Cost: Evaluating the financial impact of an ERP system requires looking at the total cost of ownership, rather than just the price tag. To gauge the total costs of the system, consider both the direct purchase cost alongside the in-house IT costs and resources spent, or not spent, on the system. Also compare the functions that are included in each product’s base package and what functionalities are add-ons that cost extra.

  3. Accessibility for non-IT users: While ERP systems have made strides in usability among line of business users, there is still wide variation between products’ accessibility. To best gauge ERP software’s usability for non-coders, look for review feedback from non-IT specialists.

Pricing Information

There is such a variety of products in this category that pricing varies widely. Many products, particularly cloud-based ERP, are priced per user with some base per/month cost for the software itself. Costs per user can be around $7,500, but are usually customized to each deployment.

One major factor is whether to deploy an on-premise or a cloud-based system. Over the course of a year, subscription fees for a cloud-based system are typically about 20 to 30 percent of the cost of a similar system’s perpetual license. Additionally, an on-premise deployment will incur support and maintenance costs which are between 10% and 20% of the original licensing fee.
