ERP Pricing Guide

How Much Does Cloud-Based Inventory & Accounting ERP Software Cost?

The cost of ERP software will depend on several factors and vary from one vendor to the next. However, across software tiers or categories, the price of competing solutions will be similar. This allows businesses to easily compare vendors in the same category on factors other than costs – such as functionality, industry fit, after-sale support and more – which will ultimately have a bigger impact on the benefits the system can provide a business.

"I browsed the web extensively and found that there wasn't anyone else that provided better value - anywhere near the value. Anyone with even close to the capabilities as Blue Link has a much higher cost of ownership. There is no other competition in that category."

Before you start looking for ERP software, it is important that you have an appropriate budget that allows you to find a system that works best for your business needs. 


Cloud-Based vs. On-Premises

The decision to implement a cloud-based or on-premises solution will greatly impact initial implementation costs, on-going fees and your overall experience with the software including infrastructure requirements. 


Type of System

Introductory software costs will be significantly lower than ERP systems - and for good reason. If you're looking to grow your business with a more sophisticated solution, you need to be ready to pay more for advanced functionality. 


Software Features

Automating processes across multiple sales channels (think retail and eCommerce), managing inventory at multiple warehouses and other business complexities will play a role in designing an appropriate budget.
