The Small and Medium Enterprises (SMBs), are oriented to find business solutions that help them grow in a managed way.
In Mexico there are more than 4.5 million SMEs, many of them in the process of growth and with the real need to renew their technological infrastructure.
But without a doubt, most of them look for economic solutions that better solve the business requirements at a low price.
This explains why most SMEs operate using accounting software, such as Contpaq or Aspel, which solve accounting and tax requirements, which are ultimately mandatory, leaving aside additional requirements such as inventory control, purchases, etc. production and the like, which are limited to handling by Excel.
Some more advanced companies opt for “ERP” type administrative solutions, but which are usually insufficient, limited and that eventually, as the company grows, they will become a growth limitation. Far from being really a lever that supports the growth and productivity of the company, it becomes a straitjacket that limits growth.
Faced with this reality, many growing SME companies wonder, Is NetSuite ERP really for SME companies ?, and the answer is YES, but you have to be willing to invest more money than traditional administrative solutions because its cost is definitely higher, because the functionality and results are much broader and it is a solution with a greater scope. The good news is that unlike in the past, the investment gap is no longer that wide. Before, it was not unusual to find that traditional back-office solutions cost a very low fraction of the cost of a world-class ERP. Today, with NetSuite 100% in the cloud, the costs are similar and although they will hardly be the same, the difference is already decreasing.
