Enterprise resource planning or ERP, is making its mark in the software arena. It has changed the way software is distributed and used. The major effect has been on small and midsized businesses that for many years did not have access to it because of the high cost of implementation. But what goes around eventually comes around and this software is now the major ERP system of choice for large, midsized and small businesses. That’s because it makes doing business easier. It is just one software system, but it is integrated with all of the software you need, placed as stand-alone or bundled applications. The system is extended with automated platform to swiftly execute business processing tasks. It´s no wonder that so many small and midsized businesses are migrating to enterprise software in great numbers. However, there is something else that has contributed to this mass migration, as well. That is the Web-based option of online, on-demand, software as a service (SaaS).

This means of software distribution has changed the way many companies do business and it has helped them to become more competitive in the process. Enterprise software was not available to smaller businesses in the past because it took a lot of money to implement. Large corporations were the only ones that could afford the expensive costs involved. But bringing the system online has levelled the playing field and made it easier for smaller firms to compete more effectively. And the response to Web-based enterprise resource planning has been tremendous. This software system provides all of the applications needed, from accounting to manufacturing, and everything in between. It’s an all-inclusive distributed system that manages the whole enterprise.
