saas erp

ERP SaaS systems are fast becoming highly popular. Let’s take a look at those out there that have become big players in their field. It’s no secret that ERP software is crucial in the dynamic and complex world of business relations and communications we work in today. As such, choosing the right ERP software for your business is a crucial decision, one which will affect how well oiled of a machine your business can become. It also affects how well you can maintain relationships with other involved organizations and stakeholders as well.

Communication is important, and without proper communication, nothing will ever go as planned. But, with the push to SaaS in recent years for much business software, is there a good set of ERP SaaS out there that can hold a candle to traditional alternatives? The concept of SaaS for such a dynamic and centralized concept as ERP software sure sounds like a promising marriage of form and function doesn’t it?

Well, today we’re going to look at the top three ERP systems that’re SaaS ready and capable of handling anything you throw at them. We will be holding them up by their price, version tenacity and their databasing capabilities as well as their payment plans. These are not ordered by superiority themselves.

#1 – Plex Systems

Plex systems is one of the more affordable subscription-based alternatives for ERP available. With an always current version release, updating frequently with almost no downtime, they’re very reliable and versatile. At a price of around $5K per month for a company subscription, they may sound a bit expensive, but bear in mind this supports up to 1,000 simultaneous user logins per account.

The only downside is they require a minimum of 20 yaers accounts to be designed for a base financial account, meaning that they’re overpriced and over-designed for a small company with less than 20 employees. This is alright, though, since you don’t need something this powerful with that small a company.

They support a wide arrange of database and infrastructures including MySQL, ODBC, Oracle and PHP/ASP to ensure that they’re always efficient and have room to upgrade and ensure feature richness and novelty for much time to come.

#2 – NetSuite

NetSuite is a little more expensive, but supports as few as ten simultaneous user accounts, though this still means that there is a limit to how small you can be. They are a forever dynamically current software service like Plex, though they are a bit higher in cost, at $10k-$100L per monthly subscription.

They are multinational and multitenant just like Plex, and are designed more for global growth for companies with high level enterprise needs. Plex is intended for growing national companies.

NetSuite supports the same technologies as Plex, though with higher ODBC compliance rates and less downtime.

#3 – EnterpriseIQ

EnterpriseIQ is an alternative model, with a $20K-$200K lease/financing purchase model. They offer unlimited simultaneous user logins within an organization, meaning that for large, unlimited growth companies with significant existing scale, they are quite a positive option to consider.

They are multinational and multitenant as well, ensuring their backup and security is top notch just as it is with the others on this list. They are not a perpetual-current version system, however, announcing their current version to be 7.7 as of the writing of this review.

They do however, only use Oracle, rather than the diversity of the other two systems. That’s not a deal breaker, as Oracle is a highly praised database standard in the business world.

These are but three of the ERP SaaS options available that pack a real wallop. There are more coming out every day, so even if you love the one you’ve chosen, never hesitate to consider migration to one you know meets your needs better.
