For small and medium-sized companies looking to upgrade to an enterprise resource planning system, CFO Publishing has just released its Buyer’s Guide to Midrange ERP Systems that will help make the purchase decision a lot easier.

An enterprise resource planning system replaces a host of legacy financial and accounting software dedicated to particular functions. Finance and accounting, human resources, sales and marketing, supply chain management—all are encompassed by the modules of an ERP system. The system runs off a single database and the result is improved data reliability, elimination of information silos, simpler and faster transaction processing, tighter integration of corporate functions, fresher (often real-time) information for decision making, and better customer service.

Since ERP systems are significant long-term investments, the CFO’s Buyer’s Guide to Midrange ERP Systems will focus on offerings suitable for midsize and smaller companies. Featured in the July issue of CFO magazine, The Buyer’s Guide discusses system-specific features and strengths, ERP and the cloud, vendor “ecosystems,” dynamic pricing, and more.

Why are CFOs often involved in the purchase of ERP systems? According to a 2013 Gartner/FEI survey, the CFO has more influence over IT investments than any other executive. In addition, according to a recent survey of 192 companies of all sizes by Panorama Consulting, the average ERP implementation costs $2.8 million and lasts 16 months. One SAP channel partner recently told CFO, “I see more CFOs on sales calls now than CIOs.”

Including a list of ten of today’s top ERP system vendors, the CFO Buyer’s Guide will be your trusted source for choosing the system that is best for your company.
