Small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) do not often see the value in investing in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. They sometimes think it is hard to use and understand. Instead, they implement multiple programs to handle discrete systems within the company, but it only ends up slowing down their business instead due to how differently these programs function from one another. Because of this, they prefer using older systems rather than improve their workflow using ERP.
However, SMEs could benefit from an ERP system, especially one that is integrated, tailored to suit their needs, and implemented by an SAP partner they can trust. As businesses are ever-evolving, an ERP system like SAP Business One could help them run more effectively and even facilitate their growth.
