"Cloud ERP for the smaller SMB. BizAutomation is a leader in smaller business management. Somewhere between QuickBooks and NetSuite (which we resemble)."
Smaller business has different needs than larger businesses, not only in terms of budget restraints but also, by definition, less specialization in terms of people that can apply their time against logical business functions. For example, in a 15 employee company, it’s not uncommon for the owner to not only close business and take care of the VIP customers, but they also most likely run the day to day financials with the help of an outsourced CPA or an in-house bookkeeper. In other words, each employee has more hats to wear.
This “many hats” reality at the smaller business level contradicts what larger businesses need. The CEO there does one thing and defers everything else to other people in the organization, so in essence, there’s a dichotomy between the needs of the smaller business and that of the larger one. How this translates to software design is obvious. The smaller business needs more best practices they can adapt to quickly, where the larger business needs exactly the opposite, they need software to follow their more diverse job function complexity.
Until BizAutomation, ERP suite design (pioneered by companies like SAP), was all about managing the complex requirements of a large business. This is why most ERP software companies design for large business and attempt to justify the costs of that system onto the small business market too. Want proof? How many ERP suites such as ours come out and openly state “We’re a small business solution"?
