G2 Crowd, a peer-to-peer business software review platform, has listed the best Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Suites Software for the public to view. ERP suites are complete, integrated systems that manage all aspects of a production-based business, aligning different departments of an organization into one database. ERP systems are used to provide transparency into the entire business process by tracking all aspects of production, financials, and materials. These expansive systems act as a central hub for end-to-end workflow and data.
According to G2, ERP systems are used mainly by manufacturing and product-centric companies. Instead of using standalone products in each separate department of a business or organization, ERP systems provide cohesiveness from the beginning to end of all business processes. ERP systems can also be integrated with customer relationship managers and professional service automation products.
With this being said, G2 Crowd also lists a variety of modules that most ERP suites offer:
- Accounting: General Ledger, Accounts Payable/Receivable, Fixed Assistant Management, Budgeting/Forecasting, Cash Management and Financial Consolidation.
- HR: Recruiting, Payroll, Incentive Compensation, Workforce Management.
- Supply Chain Management: Demand/Supply Planning, Distribution, Procurement/Purchasing, Order Management, Inventory/Warehouse Management.
- Manufacturing: Bill of Materials, Product Lifecycle Management, Quality Management.
The best ERP Suites Software that G2 Crowd provides are determined by customer satisfaction based on user reviews, and scale based on market share, vendor size, and social impact. Similarly to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, the ERP software vendors are placed into four categories on the grid. The four categories are Leaders, High Performers, Contenders and Niche.
