Tier 3 ERP applications provide functionally-focused software for specific pain points of a company, as well as other basic needs. Startups and small businesses often focus on the following areas:
- Planning and scheduling
- Quality control
- Production or warehouse management
Solutions addressing these focus areas can be off-the-shelf and rapidly deployed.
There are many ERP products in the Tier 3 market. Certain vendors provide end-to-end ERP functionality including financials, but tend to be less flexible and scalable. Most companies purchasing a Tier 3 ERP application invest very little on outside services and implement these systems on their own.
