Justification of ERP Investments Part 1: Quantifiable Benefits from an ERP System


Studies that surveyed manufacturers about the impact of ERP systems on firm performance indicate that company size and industry do not affect the results.

xTuple xChange, Add on to Your ERP


In a call yesterday with xTuple's Ned Lilly, we had a chance to catch up on the open source ERP vendor's current business.
