ERP Buyer’s Guide

ERP Buyer's Guide 2019-20

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 product or company behind it, and explore local case studies. To find relevant case studies for a particular industry search the archive by industry vertical. We maintain a large repository of case studies offline, so if you are struggling to find relevant reference sites (and you certainly should be looking for close matches), or just need some guidance, get in touch.

For broader commentary on where the ERP market is heading over 2019-20, read over our latest assessment:  Where to now for innovation in ERP? (this is also included in the PDF download below).
