ERP Software Overview

What is ERP Software?

Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP software 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. This involves many different processes such as manufacturing, supply chain, HR, etc.


The entire data flow across these functions is enabled by a central database that manages the data flow. All functions see precisely the same data. Additionally, the shared database eliminates re-keying of critical data. For example sales orders flow automatically into the financial system.

ERP Software 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

ERP Implementation

Traditional ERP software systems are complex, expensive proprietary software. They requiring consultants to implement them according to a company’s specific requirements. ERP implementations can be long and costly often requiring a company to modify their business processes or change them completely.

New Trends in ERP

ERP software has undergone a profound transformation in recent years. The main vectors of change are:

Expansion Beyond Manufacturing

ERP has expanded beyond its original business functions to include newer functional areas like Business Intelligence (BI), CRM and Marketing Automation, and eCommerce. As a result, a broader range of companies than the manufacturing-centric systems of traditional ERP is now using reaping the benefits or ERP.

Cloud ERP

Although the ERP sector is still dominated by on-premise solutions, this is beginning to change.


The advent of cloud computing has greatly simplified complex software deployment. Unlike on-premise software, cloud software does not require a trained internal IT staff, or maintenance and patching.


Many of the large ERP vendors have been re-architecting their products to a partial or hybrid cloud deployment model where some parts of the process are moved to the cloud, and others remain on-premise.

Small Business ERP

For many small and medium-sized businesses multi-tenant, cloud ERP is a real option. For smaller companies, the total cost-of-ownership for of a cloud-based system is likely to be lower than for on-premise software.


Cloud ERP software designed for SMBs is becoming more of an option as the range or product options increases and worries about cloud security diminish.

Pricing Information

There is such a variety of products in this category that pricing varies widely.


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.


Other factors affecting price are the total number of users, and specific modules required.
