ERP Faceoff: SAP vs. Staples

ERP Faceoff: SAP vs. Staples

Summary: Kevin Meyer of Superfactory offers some advice to a $5 million manufacturing company with a single plant facility. He makes a case that spending a few thousand dollars at Staples to cobble together a operational and financial system--consisting of a whiteboard, webcam, and QuickBooks Manufacturing edition--could be more effective than spending hundreds of thousands on a serious ERP system from SAP or Oracle or even more modestly priced on demand solutions such as NetSuite.
