With businesses around the world facing continual disruption, technological tools are increasingly crucial to the success of established enterprises and start-ups alike. For most, this means finding the best ERP tools to use is essential for continued development and organizational success. Working with Statista Inc., the globally recognized data research company, Newsweek has produced an authoritative list of America’s Best Business Tools. Newsweek has listed the top providers of business software and software services in 54 categories: from audio editing software to cybersecurity tools.
Newsweek’s Best Business Tools 2019 list is based on a nationwide survey of more than 10,000 professional users of software and software service providers. Survey participants were asked about their willingness to recommend the software provider and to rate the provider in categories of trust, service promise, reliability, security, improvement, and satisfaction. For every provider, a weighted score from 0 to 100 was calculated using the criteria above.
For this article, we’ve chosen to focus on the best ERP software providers. ERP systems are integrated systems that manage all aspects of a business; aligning financial management, human resources, supply chain management, and manufacturing with the core function of accounting. These expansive systems act as a central hub for end-to-end workflow and data, and are very important for any businesses continued success.
