Comparing ERP – Choosing between Tier 2 and Tier 3 ERP systems  

Published: 21 September 2023

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is so much more than just accounting software. It connects every part of your business into one hub. Even for small businesses, ERP has become a requirement. It supports everything from reporting to compliance. The right ERP solution can not only save you money but support your growth. Although the initial costs may feel steep, it’s important to view ERP software as an investment. ERP solutions are usually classified by Tier, with Tier 1 being the most complex followed by Tier 2 then Tier 3.  

Today we’re looking specifically at comparisons in Tier 2 (Sage 200, Microsoft 365 Business Central) and Tier 3 (Xero, Sage 50, QuickBooks) ERP Solutions.

When selecting an ERP system, your business needs to carry out an audit of your needs and goals. Think about factors such as the functionalities you require, budget constraints, implementation timeline, and integration needs. It’s also vital to find the right ERP partner who can guide you towards the most suitable solution for your specific business requirements. 

Ultimately, the decision between Tier 2 and Tier 3 ERP systems depends on the size, complexity, and growth aspirations of your business, as well as the budget available for the implementation and ongoing maintenance. A well-chosen ERP system can streamline operations, support growth, and drive efficiency across the entire organisation.
