WHAT ARE THE TYPE OF ERPs?
There are different types of ERP based on the business requirement – like industries the software can cover, installation methods, or the size of your business.
Based on the industries it can cover, there is generic and industry-specific ERP software. The former can be used across diverse industries while the latter can be used only for a specific industry.
According to present installation methods, ERP can be on-premises and on-cloud. While on-premises ERP can be accessed only from your office, the on-cloud ERP can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
