ERP systems classification

Based on years of experience with ERP systems selection, Select has made a simple market segmentation: Small Business, Mid-Market and Large Enterprises. This breakdown into useful segments helps to narrow down the vast list of ERP suppliers to a manageable number of possibilities to consider. If you request our ERP information pack, all you will need to do is to select a segment based on a few simple criteria like budget available, number of users, size of your company and level of sophistication.

ERP systemsWe will ask you to choose one of the following options:

  • Basic Segment intended for small businesses with at least 5 users and investments starting at £15,000. These companies are generally interested in out-of-the box solutions. The implementation period is relatively short and consultancy work needed for configuration is limited.
  • Mid-market intended for 50 users or more and investments starting at £150,000. Best suited for small and medium-sized organizations. The complexity of the business processes involved and specific demands require significant configuration efforts to implement.
  • Top segment aiming at large enterprises with at least 150 users, a high level of sophistication and budgets starting at £600,000. Implementation involves an average implementation period of 12 months, considerable configuration or even new software development and programming.
