Do I Need an ERP?
ERPNext is a modern tool that covers not only accounting, but also all other business functions, on an integrated platform. It has many benefits over both traditional accounting as well as ERP applications.
Benefits over traditional accounting software:
- Do a lot more than just accounting! Manage inventory, billing, quotes, leads, payroll and a lot more.
- Keep all your data safe and in one place. Don’t keep hunting for data when you need it across spreadsheets and different computers. Manage everyone on the same page. All users get the same updated data.
- Stop repetitive work. Don’t enter the same information from your word processor to your accounting tool. It's all integrated.
- Keep track. Get the entire history of a customer or a deal in one place.
