I'm looking at doing a link from a SaaS CRM product for SMEs and the vendor has asked if we should look at SaaS ERP/accounting systems only or a mix of SaaS and on-premises.
It would really help if anyone could point me in the right direction to find the following:
• How SaaS ERP products compare in the market to on-premises ERP … now and expectations in the next year or two. I suspect the uptake hasn't been as rapid as with CRM due to the more conservative nature of accountants
• What are the relative shares of the major players like (if available)?
• How good their data access is – API etc. Easy to read/write their tables and send/receive to the CRM via a third-party tool?
• Do any have opportunities to promote a CRM solution that links to their product to their client bases
Any help appreciated ...
Just to clarify ... I'm looking for suggestions of the 3-5 most popular cloud-based ERP systems for SMBs, how their current market-share compares with on-premises, and how easy it is for a third-party product to read/write the data
Also, if you have any links to data on how North America compares to international in this regard
