Manufacturing MRP Software for Small Business (5-50 Users)
The system workflow consists of four phases:
DBA provides the benefits of ERP software, but without the cost and complexity that makes traditional ERP systems unsuitable for smaller manufacturers.
An ERP software package is an application where all the core business functions are processed within a single, integrated system. The term "ERP" is commonly understood to mean a highly costly and complicated software package for larger enterprises.
DBA is a different type of ERP software package -- one that is designed and priced for small business. DBA provides small manufacturers with an alternative to over-complicated ERP systems.
ERP systems compete on features and have morphed over time into big and bloated packages that try to be all things to all people. DBA, on the other hand, is tightly focused on one target market -- small manufacturing businesses.
ERP systems are complicated and can only be implemented with extensive outside help. By contrast, DBA is designed for self-implementation using a step-by-step series of sequential tasks combined with video training courses.
The ERP sales process is highly complicated and involves salespeople, resellers, needs analysis, presentations, proposals, references, site visits, contracts, consultants, and trainers. DBA avoids these complications with a self-help sales model that combines a free evaluation system with video presentations.
With DBA all functions, including accounting, are processed within a single, integrated system. You therefore get the benefits of ERP software, but without the high cost and complexity. For small manufacturing businesses, DBA is the alternative to over-complicated ERP systems.
