No surprise, more and more companies are opting for a two- tiered approach to buying enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. Granted, this option is usually thought to be the choice of larger corporations with subsidiaries and many branch offices.
As such, the Tier-1 system is comprised of a company’s legacy system, that is generally located at the home office and handles all of the back office tasks. Typically, such platforms rely on an array of customized apps and programs to deliver what many ERP software systems can do in a single, database management system.
The Tier-2 system doesn’t offer duplicate services, but rather will integrate regional locales with the corporate system.
But small and mid-sized businesses expect the same features and benefits that larger companies receive from their ERP deployments. Today, more small manufacturers and distributors are turning to SaaS like NetSuite’s ERP software to manage their back office tasks and critical financial functions.
In the case of NetSuite, this robust SaaS accounting suite (Financial Management module) offers 24/7 availability through a Web-based service. This makes it ideal for sharing data remotely to enhance decision-making.
The software uses a cloud-based solution for ‘order management’ as well that incorporates inventory, CRM, and even eCommerce features; this, in a bid to streamline quote-to-cash while relying on one program as a single source for finance, sales as well as developing customer data.
Discover all of the opportunities this SaaS-based platform can offer your business. NetSuite software is currently deployed in over 24,000 organizations in over 100 countries---it’s the world’s most deployed cloud ERP system in place in 2015.
