We are about to purchase 50 pcs. 40 will be placed in store offices where most of the usage is basic functions accessing our web applications. The PCs that I'm about to purchase comes with Windows 10 Pro. Is there a strong reason to consider Windows 10 Enterprise? Some of the current computers in our stores have Enterprise and some have Pro. The remote systems are connect via WAN.

Hey,

I'd say check on Microsoft's website to compare their features and decide from there: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/windowsforbusiness/compare

Unless you need some specific Enterprise features (like Direct Access)  you'll be fine with Professional in a domain environment.
You could also up the version from Pro to Enterprise later should you need to.

Enterprise is generally used in large corporations and such. Unless you have central management tools you don't need it.

Here is the general summary from Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/Compare

Keep in mind Enterprise is only available as a license, so you would have to purchase it over and above whatever comes on the system. So extra expense for features you probably don't need.

For accessing web applications, I would consider using thin clients on Unix(Linux)..
