Solutions Review Names 4 ERP Vendors to Watch in 2020

Solutions Review’s ERP Vendors to Watch is an annual listing of solution providers we believe are worth monitoring. Companies are commonly included if they demonstrate a product roadmap aligning with our meta-analysis of the marketplace. Other criteria include recent and significant funding, talent acquisition, a disruptive or innovative new technology or product, or inclusion in a major analyst publication.

The process of searching, evaluating, purchasing, and deploying an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution is not as simple as it once was. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to ERP software. Solutions today come in a variety of different flavors, each features a particular set of capabilities, strengths, and drawbacks. Choosing the right vendor and solution is a complicated process—one that requires in-depth research and often comes down to more than just the solution and its technical capabilities.

In that spirit, we’ve turned our gaze to the future of ERP software. Whether its inclusion in a recent analyst report, the release of an innovative new tool, or a bump in venture funding, these are the ERP providers that have earned watch list status from Solutions Review for the year ahead.
