In these industries, Ultra Consultants tracks the top 20 ERP vendors. Not only do we track companies and products, but we also track the resellers and partners popular among middle-market companies. There are many other products not on our list. We do not track some companies because they are smaller companies or older products that do not have significant market penetration.
In this section we will provide a profile on each vendor. We maintain this information through our contact with these vendors during our client engagements. In addition, we schedule an annual briefing with each vendor, partner and reseller.
