ERP Buyers Guide 20-21

Welcome to iStart’s annual ERP Buyer’s Guide. The Guide provides in-depth comparison and evaluation of the leading ERP vendors and products active in the A/NZ region, along with contact details for their local implementation partners…

Use the ERP Buyer’s Guide to find solutions that fit with your business requirements or industry vertical. As part of your research you should also check the vendor’s listing on the ERP pavilion for more detail on the product or the company behind it, and explore local case studies. To find relevant case studies for a particular industry, search our case study archive by industry vertical. We also maintain a large reference repository of case studies offline, so if you are struggling to find relevant reference sites (and you certainly should be looking for close matches), get in touch.

For broader commentary on where the ERP market is heading, read our latest assessment:  ERP market gets cloudier (this is also included in the PDF download below).
