What is the Best ERP solution for a SME?

I am after some advice as to the best ERP solution for our SME.
We currently use Sage Line 500 and SalesLogix.

We are currently looking at Microsoft Dynamics, as the integration seems to meet our requirements. But we are very open to suggestions.
Also someone has recommended Net Suite which is apparently an ASP model.

The main role of our business is distribution so stock control is the main focus. However we also need good accounting and CRM system.

Thanks.

Dynamics AX is probably the way to go for you, but all of the Dynamics platforms (such as Dynamics GP 10.0) can more/less be gap-fitted with ISV products to meet your needs.

Also, the AX platform is probably the most .NET friendly in regards to customizations being made if needed.

For Dynamics, once you are on board, there is also Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 with, also being Active-Directory integrated, has many connection points where it can be integrated to another ERP system.
