Software vendors segment markets by company size. Either you are an SMB (small and medium-sized business) or you are an Enterprise. You may think that ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software connotes functionality only needed by large companies. This couldn't be further from the truth.
ERP is defined as a set of integrated systems used to manage a business and automate back office functions. Indeed if you are using QuickBooks or a Shopify website and feeding orders into ShipStation, you are on your way to creating an ERP system for your company. Yet you may have files in Excel that continuously change and systems that don't speak to each other, resulting in additional manual processes. As your business grows, the need to share information with more people from other departments or partners in a different location stresses your current IT infrastructure.
Fortunately it has never been easier and more cost effective for the savvy small enterprise to create integrations between their most important systems and trading partners. What you need is a system which acts as the hub in the wheel. For product-based businesses, that system would have a lot to do with inventory.
