What is Small Business ERP?

Small Business ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a business software system used to manage the operations of a small business.  ERP for small businesses automates core business processes to provide visibility, data analysis and business intelligence reporting.

Enterprise Resource Planning can integrate various organizational functions such as Accounting, CRM, Supply Chain Management and Manufacturing. Many ERP systems group specific functions into modules.

The definition of small business varies by industry, but a small business could have up to 1500 employees, or fewer than 500 employees for manufacturing, according the U.S. Small Business Administration.
