The SMB market is filled with organizations that have outgrown their entry-level small business software and are in need of migrating to more robust software solution. Tier II and Tier III ERP developers are embracing these companies and helping these small businesses upgrade their QuickBooks and Peachtree accounting software to more advanced ERP systems.
Increased regulatory compliance and big-box retailer expectations have forced companies to trade in their small businesses software for ERP packages that manage more sophisticated requirements such as FDA compliance, lot tracking, bar-coding, and EDI transactions. The increased ease of use in ERP software packages and the onset of the software as a service software model have made this transition more feasible for the small business owner.

And more importantly, it has made the movement from QuickBooks and Peachtree accounting software to an integrated ERP system possible.
