The evolution of Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions has been one of the major driving factors.

functions like sales force & marketing automation.

The traits like scalability and affordability help them cut costs by eliminating dispensable processes, automating mundane tasks, and providing employees actionable information that will help them make better decisions much faster than ever before.
