If you’re ready to stop “getting by” with QuickBooks, then half the battle is already won. It’s a windy road ahead, but don’t worry, there are some experienced local guides to help. As you begin considering system alternatives, you’ll come across many ERP (enterprise resource planning) software products and vendors that seem, well, the same. During the evaluation process, you will need beyond the more standard "out-of-the-box" functions and drill down into how and why it's the right fit for your company. So how do you thin out the field and narrow down to the business software, that’s right for your specific requirements?
