Hermosa Beach, CA (PressExposure) March 04, 2009 -- ERP.com (www.erp.com), a leader in bridging together enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and SaaS (software as a service) practitioners with enterprise systems software, hardware and services, sees a silver lining for enterprise systems vendors in the down trodden market. The positive trend is attributed to the emergence of less capital intensive products on the market, particularly open source and SaaS solutions, that afford companies the tools to drive down their costs which is critical in today's climate.
ERP Software Offers Relief For Recession Pains
"It's good to see overall positive commentaries and a sense of vigor for a change. We are seeing an upbeat tone in this particular sector because vendors of enterprise solutions are focusing on hard cost savings that ERP software can deliver to companies in the short term as well as in the long run" says Chance Berry, Enterprise Software Analyst at ERP.com.
Adding to this positive groundswell, "ERP II product innovations such as software on demand (SOD) and SaaS solutions are making enterprise solutions affordable and companies are more willing to give them a try" says Sam Patel, Director of Sales at Central Desktop, an SaaS based collaboration software vendor. Short term cost savings and a low entry price commitment means lower risk to customers who in earlier years were required to make a "career decision" given the significant capital investment required when going with a "big" enterprise system.
Getting back to business and to profitability seems to be the mantra of the "big" enterprise companies as well. ERP giant SAP is also focusing on the inherent cost saving benefits of ERP systems as well as new modular solutions that lower the required capital investment than a full enterprise solution would entail. Furthermore, by establishing a strong enterprise solution now, a business can better weather the economic storm and be well positioned to make up for lost ground when the clouds clear.
ERP.com is also seeing double digit growth in traffic and member signups. As an internet hub for ERP software vendors and practitioners the company is also double digit growth all across the board as they provide the tools and platform for enterprise vendors to connect with customers. Consultants can connect with implementation opportunities and publicize their services.
What is ERP - Enterprise Resource Planning?
