The SAP Alternative – projectfacts

25. May 2020

When people talk about business software, most of them think of the market leader SAP. Many forget, however, that there are also midsize companies that sell business software and do so successfully. The introduction is usually faster and the costs more manageable than with the market leader. The target group of these companies are mostly small and medium-sized enterprises, because the systems are designed according to the requirements of the SMEs. The reason why so many companies are now looking for ERP software is digitization. If you want to survive the competition, you have to go digital nowadays. That’s why digitization is also supported by the federal states.

The big advantage of these companies compared to SAP is the less complex implementation and easier operation. In addition, one system covers everything where different systems have to be licensed and linked at SAP.

The ERP system projectfacts offers its customers a system for all business processes that is individually adapted to the customer. With projectfacts one pays a price for the complete system, in which all modules are included. If a function is not needed, it can be deactivated.
