The editors at Solutions Review have put together a list to spotlight some of the best project-based ERP software solutions to consider.
The differences between a project-based ERP and a traditional ERP solution are subtle but crucial. Where traditional ERPs are built for managing extensive, repetitive processes across an organization, a project-based ERP is more focused on the project lifecycle. Project ERP solutions should cover all of the various business functions and processes a project-based organization relies on. Due to these differences, project-based businesses require an ERP platform with a suite of capabilities that can be tailored to their needs.
With that in mind, the editors at Solutions Review compiled the following list of top-rated ERP solutions for project-based organizations to consider implementing into their company. Our editors selected these software solutions based on each provider’s Authority Score, a meta-analysis of user sentiment through the web’s most trusted business software review sites, and our proprietary five-point inclusion criteria. The list is organized alphabetically.
