In these industries, Ultra Consultants track the top 30 ERP vendors. We track the companies and products popular among middle-market companies. There are many other products not on our list. We do not track those companies because they are small companies or older products that are not getting significant market penetration.
In this section we provide you 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 for our team.
