Different Types of Enterprise Resource Planning Software (ERP)

Enterprise Resource Planning Software (ERP) integrates your business data and processes into a single system that generally includes hardware, software, and process documentation. Enterprise Resource Planning Software can help improve inventory management, accounts payable, manufacturing, human resources, and quality control for your organization. There are different types of ERP systems ranging from industry-specific ERP solutions such as those offered by Infor ERP; to web-based, or cloud ERP; to small business ERP.

The type of ERP system that will work best for your business depends on the size of your organization and the functions of the ERP solution that can best support your business requirements.

Industry Specific Infor ERP

Infor ERP offers a solution for the manufacturing and distribution industries and has been supporting the requirements of businesses for decades and used by more than 70,000 businesses in over 200 countries. Industry specific ERP are generally for large corporations and are customized to the organization’s exact needs.

Web-Based, or “Cloud” ERP

Instead of running advanced ERP software on your organization’s computers, some companies go with a web-based solution, called Software as a Service (SaaS). Cloud ERP lets businesses pay a subscription for accessing the software and storing data over the internet. The ERP system runs on a remote server, giving your organization anywhere, anytime access from any device with an internet connection while offering an affordable solution to your ERP needs. It’s ideal for businesses of any size, but best suited to small businesses with smaller budgets.

ERP for Small Businesses

If you need a solution for sales and order management, or human resources, but don’t need a full warehouse management or manufacturing component – ERP for small businesses is an option. As a small business you may not have a need to automate accounting solutions or customer relations management. A scaled-down ERP solution is ideal for small businesses while providing just the functionality you need at a price you can afford.
