The post reviews different ERP software options available for small manufacturing business in India by Relevance, Features, Size of Business, Price, Technology, Local support etc. I’ve given the good with the bad to help you make the right choice for your business. Primarily it is important to understand the difference between a Large Enterprise ERP and a Small Business ERP software.
