ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. An ERP is business management software that lets your business integrate applications and automate business functions. Typically, a suite of integrated applications, ERP can be used to collect, store, manage and interpret data from different parts of your business, including operations, finance, HR, payroll and even sales and marketing. It brings all those things together to offer an integrated view of core business processes, in real-time.
Because every business is different, ERP software can be customised, with a range of applications to suit your needs and processes. It’s all aimed at helping your business do what it does, better.

All ERP software is not created equal, but most systems do share some common features. The one feature all ERP systems include is a shared database used by different business units. This common database allows different people across the business – whether in sales, accounting, HR or anywhere else – to access to the same information when making business decisions.
ERP software also offers automated reporting, giving businesses accurate information in real-time. They allow companies to automate processes and streamline functions, taking some of the boring, repetitive grunt work from employees.

SaaS stands for ‘software as a service’ – or the supply of software, usually on a subscription basis, over the internet. There’s no need to install and update software – it’s all done for you by the supplier. The SaaS model can be used for a wide range of tasks and is especially useful for core business functions.
Among many other programs, customer relationship management, sales, projects, accounting and HR/payroll software can all be delivered via the SaaS model. The service is usually paid for via an annual or monthly subscription fee, which covers the cost of licensing the software and usually includes a component to cover service and support.
