By its nature, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) installations are complicated and broad in scope. Below, I rate the product home pages of three top ERP vendors, using my Core Score method (see point criteria at right).
NetSuite (an ERP package combining CRM, ERP and web activity) is the winner, awarded all the points except for “News headline and link,” totaling 11. But they also get 4 bonus points, with 3 of them for effectively differentiating their product/service from competitors. So the grand total is 15.
I love the use of many customer logos that are links to Customer Success Stories – although it would be better if the stories were on web pages rather than downloadable PDFs.
All companies got one bonus point for not using “leader” or “leading” in the text, although NetSuite succumbed on their “About” page. All are clearly leaders in the ERP game and can prove it – nothing would be gained by proclaiming it.
